India Pale Ales
An extension of the pale ale category with higher gravity ranges and an enhanced hop presence, IPAs have become one of the most popular styles of beer in the craft beer world. English and American examples differ due to the ingredients used, particularly the hop varieties. Although malt flavors are often present and offer balance, IPAs are a true celebration of hop aroma, flavor and bitterness. Newly developed hop varieties continue to bring exciting new flavors to this style, proving that bitter is beautiful.
