Practice makes perfect.
Give it a shot. It'll grow on you.
I hated hoppy beer for years, thought they were horrible. That is when I used to drink beer with fruit in it. A good buddy would always come over a leave a few pales in the fridge, and they would sit there for months. One night I had a few when I was to lazy to go to the store, that is where I trace my addiction. Back then, Sierra Nevada Pale Ale was insanely hoppy to me. Now, I can't even taste the hops in that beer. IPAs have killed my palate, they are the only style I drink now.
I've seen many people go through this same process since....give it time, might happen to you too.
