IIPA - Imperial / Double IPA

Imperial IPA, also called Double or Triple IPA, is a strong often sweet intensely hoppy version of the traditional India Pale Ale. The ABV level for this style generally begins at 7.5% but is more commonly in the 8.0%+ range. The flavour profile is intense all around. Unlike barley wines, the balance is heavily towards the hops, with crystal and other malts providing support.

Premium members can view the top 50 in each style category. Nonpremium members will be able to see the top 25.
