There has to be some snobbery about IPA that I think has to do with the high ABV. Somehow you're special if you can drink two or three 90/120 minute IPAs and not fall down, you've done something. Acquired taste? Not really, Sierra Nevada has been doing there thing for awhile and everyone loves that stuff. It's the, "I'll make all my friends who are drinking Natty Ice look lower than me if I'm drinking this shit" beer. Maybe people just freak on the snob factor because it's an acronym and not "lite" but still drinkable.
