So, you like IPAs, eh? IPAs are one of the most popular beer styles and definitely the backbone of the craft beer industry. IPAs have a long history all over the world. It would be pretty unlikely to come across a brewery that does not brew an India Pale Ale.
What is an IPA?
India Pale Ales (IPA) is a hoppy beer style in the category of Pale Ales. IPAs use more hops and usually have a higher alcohol content. Learn more about IPA’s in this article: Beer Styles: India Pale Ale.
IPA’s have 4 main styles, English, American, White/Belgian & Imperial/Double.
What is an English IPA?
EIPAs are bitter, but smooth and have a lighter mouthfeel than their hoppier American cousins.

What is an American IPA?
Based on the British style, but using American hops this has a heavier mouthfeel and is often characterized by higher IPAs.

What is a Belgian/White IPA?
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.

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%. Learn more about Imperial/Double IPAs in this article: Beer Styles: Imperial/Double IPA (DIPA/IIPA).
