Has Anyone Attended an IPA Tasting?

tofuburrito | May 8, 200909:44 AM     6

I’m thinking of hosting a tasting/scoring of IPA’s from California brewers. I’ve hosted a stout tasting in the past and it went well but my concern with IPA’s is that due to the nature of the ales people’s taste buds will be shot early on and it will be difficult to distinguish differences later in the tasting (I’m planning on having around 10 different IPA’s).
So I was wondering if anyone had any thoughts on that and if there are any opinions on whether it’s o.k. to include Double IPA’s in the mix with (single) IPA’s.
