IPA - English
The English India Pale Ale (IPA) is a hoppy, moderately-strong, very well-attenuated pale golden to deep amber British ale with a dry finish and a hoppy aroma and flavor. Generally will have more finish hops and less fruitiness and/or caramel than British pale ales and bitter and has less hop intensity and a more pronounced malt flavor than typical American versions. The modern IPA style generally refers to American IPA and its derivatives but this does not imply that English IPA isn't a proper IPA. Originally, the attributes of IPA that were important to its arrival in good condition from England to India by ship were that it was very well-attenuated, and heavily hopped.
