Potable proof that change is good. India Pale Ale (IPA) was originally a variation of English Style Pale Ale. Its stronger, hoppier character was designed to survive the arduous overseas journey from Britain to its colonies in India. Today, just for fun, American brewers continue to alter the formula and produce bigger, even hoppier renditions like smooth, aromatic Evolution IPA. Handcrafted at the second largest brewery in Golden.
