IPA - Sour / Wild

The “Wild India Pale Ale (IPA)”, also named “Brett IPA”, is a hop-forward, bitter, dryish beer where some fruity acidic or funky character, introduced by wild yeast or bacteria (generally Brettanomyces, but also others such as Lactobacillus or Pediococcus), is evident but in balance with other components of the IPA. It is a generally a decidedly hoppy and bitter, moderately strong American ale, showcasing modern American or New World hop varieties. The balance is hop-forward, dryish finish, and clean, supporting malt allowing a creative range of hop character to shine through with the funky or acidic character always present. The “Sour IPA” is generally meant for an IPA recipe where the flavor primarily comes from Lactobacillus used in a kettle souring process and are often compared to NEIPAs with added tartness. Colour and taste may vary since many substyles exist. The style also includes beers described as “Gose IPA”.
