On this episode of Craft Brew Reviews, Alabama Boss tries IPA beers. IPA (India Pale Ale) is a popular beer style that originated in England in the 18th century. It is known for its bold and bitter taste, as well as its high alcohol content.
Traditionally, IPA beers were made with extra hops, which were added during the brewing process to help preserve the beer during long journeys to India. Today, IPAs have evolved to include a wide range of flavors and aromas, from citrusy and fruity to piney and floral.
One of the key characteristics of IPA beers is their high hop content, which gives them a distinct bitterness and aroma. Hops also contain natural preservatives that help to keep the beer fresh for longer periods of time. This makes IPAs a great choice for beer enthusiasts who enjoy a bold, flavorful brew.
Although IPAs are not Alabama Boss’ usual cup of tea, he was pleasantly surprised with how much he enjoyed Braxton Brewing Co’s Graeters Ice Cream Collaborative Milk Stout. Whether you’re a seasoned beer enthusiast or just starting to explore the world of craft beer, IPAs are definitely worth a try.
