American Strong Ale

Not a style%2C per se%2C but a catch-all category to incorporate the plethora of strong%2C stylistically vague beers coming from American microbreweries today. Some are related to English Strong Ales%2C but with a higher hop rate%2C while others are ultra-strong variants on the IPA or red ale themes. No matter how varied their origins or characters might be%2C all are intense%2C potent%2C with generous quantities of hops and malt.
