IPA - Brut
The Brut India Pale Ale (IPA) is a very pale to light golden, very dry, highly effervescent variant of American IPA, usually highly hopped with aromatic hops, but with far less actual bitterness. Enzymes are used in the mash and/or fermenter along with highly fermentable wort and often adjuncts like rice and corn to achieve close to total attenuation, resulting in an absent residual malt sweetness. Hopped in a similar fashion to New England IPA, but without sweetness. Pale like a West Coast IPA, but without high bitterness. Highly carbonated like a Belgian Golden Strong ale, but even drier, and without Belgian spice and phenol character.
