IPA – India Pale Ales

IPA stands for India Pale Ale. Yes, its technically a “pale ale“ but we gave IPA its own category due to its popularity, and our love for the style.

The name India Pale Ale was originated back in the early-mid 1800s, since beer brewed in England was exported to their colony in India. Some contest that more hops were added to the beer to survive the long journey by sea, but this may also be a myth.

You can find American or English style IPAs, and Imperial IPAs (aka Double IPAs) designate an ABV above 7.5%. Session and Triple IPAs are two more emerging variations.
