New England IPA

Emphasizing hop aroma and flavor without bracing bitterness, the New England IPA  leans heavily on late and dry hopping techniques to deliver a bursting juicy, tropical hop experience. The skillful balance of technique and ingredient selection, often including the addition of wheat or oats, lends an alluring haze to this popular take on the American IPA.
