With this article we want to tell you more about craft IPA beers. A nod to this style of beer we have already given in one of our previous articles.
As we know, India Pale Ale, is a style of beer that belongs to the Pale Ale category, but is distinguished from all others by its bitter taste.
This style of beer originated in the English colonial period and owes its intense hopping to the need to preserve itself for long journeys to India. Its high alcohol content allowed it to protect itself from the risks of bacterial contamination due to long travel and storage in barrels. Thus, these are top-fermented and rather hopped craft beers; they have a fruity and herbaceous aroma and taste with an important but balanced bitterness due to the hops used.
What is it possible to pair an IPA beer with?
Because of its fairly bitter taste, it is best paired with fatty foods such as some fish and game while it is not recommended to be paired with dishes with sauces.
