World’s Best IPAs
India Pale Ale is one of the most popular beer styles and some say the style that launched the craft beer industry. Here are some of our favorite IPAs for your enjoyment!

IPAs are a HUGE subject and we could talk about them all day, but we want you to get out and explore the possibilities not just read about them. So for brevities sake, there are four main types of IPA:
1) English IPA
Sorry Americans! The Brits did it first, so they could provide beer to their troops in India that still tasted good. EIPAs are bitter, but smooth and have a lighter mouthfeel than their hoppier American cousins.
Our Favorite English IPAs:
2) American IPA
Based on the British style, but using American hops this has a heavier mouthfeel and is often characterized by higher IPAs.
Our Favorite American IPAs:
For those who love both a Belgian Witbier and an American IPA, this is definitely a choice beer. Hopped like the AIPA, but spiced and citrusy like a witbier it’ll make your day.
Our Favorite Belgian/White IPAs:
This IPA is distinguished from all the others because it has an ABV range that is twice that of a normal IPA ranging from 7% up to 14%.
Our Favorite Imperial/Double IPAs:
