Description

Enlivened by American India Pale Ales and Double IPAs, an ever increasing number of Belgian brewers (like Chouffe and Urthel) are brewing hoppy pale hued ales for the US market. There's been an expansion of American brewers making Belgian IPAs, as well. For the most part, Belgian IPAs are considered too hoppy by Belgian beer consumers. Different malts are utilized, yet the beers of this style are done with Belgian yeast strains (bottle-adapted) while the hops utilized will in general be American. You'll by and large discover a cleaner bitterness versus American IPAs, and an articulated dry edge, likened to an IPA crossed with a Belgian Tripel. Alcohol by volume is on the high side. Numerous models are very overcast and highlight tight binding, superb head maintenance, and incredible swelling heads that hypnotize (thanks, partially, to the hops). Belgian IPA is still particularly a creating style.
