Spiegelau IPA glass

I was skeptical that these new Spiegelau glasses, which were supposedly designed for drinking IPAs but that’s not true, were better than my favorite Spiegelau tulip glass but when they dropped to a low price of $10/ea I bought them. We tasted the same beer in both glasses and the IPA glass did have a noticeably more flavorful and less bitter taste. Firestone’s Union Jack has always had too much of a grapefruit bitterness for me but I liked it in the IPA glass. I still don’t like the look or the lack of a stem but I’ll use them anyway. In fact, I bought two more!
