Nothing excites the craft beer drinker more than an IPA, almost the flagship beer of the American Craft beer Revolution.
This beer is far different from the stuffy sub 4% beers found in some back street pubs with more similarities to the traditional IPAs brewed in the 18th century.
These beers were brewed to slake the thirst of the British troops garrisoned in India and were heavily hopped and relatively high in alcohol to survive the arduous journey round the southern tip of South Africa.
These days American IPAs are brewed to be drunk fresh and use obscene amounts of fragrant American hops that give them their unique pine, fruit salad and floral character. Young's used three of the most popular and heavily sought after hops Simcoe, Centennial and Chinook.
Chinook and Centennial are classic American hops, beautiful and fragrant they exude grapefruit and floral character, the Simcoe tempers this fruit character with its more savoury pine resin character.
