Typical American IPA. Golden coloured beer, light-moderate body, moderate-high alcohol level and highly hoppy. Hops is the most important ingredient in this style, bringing the high bitterness as well as the citrus and fruity aromas of American hops (“New world hops”). Despite being a strong and bitter beer, it is very refreshing and a nice pair for spicy foods.
*The bitterness depends on the alpha acid contentof hops, boiling conditions and other parameters.
