IPA - Sour / Wild
The Sour India Pale Ale (IPA) and the Wild IPA, also named Brett IPA, are hop-forward, bitter, dryish beers where some fruity acidic or funky character - introduced by wild yeast or bacteria, such as Brettanomyces, 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. Color and taste can vary since many substyles exist.
