As we step in to 2022, Beerhunter wants to start the new year with our top 5 Indian pale ales. An IPA beer is a hoppy style beer that generally has a higher alcohol percentage than other beers. It was originally needed because brewers needed to keep the beer fresher for longer on the travels from England to India. So, they added hops to solve this issue; creating the IPA beer we have all come to know and love.
Brewdog Punk IPA is a prime example of a classic British IPA. Containing 5.6% alcohol, Brewdog Punk IPA is a light Indian pale ale, with bursts of caramel and tropical fruit such as grapefruit, pineapple, and lychee. Enjoy a refreshingly bold, hoppy, and tropical IPA beer to kick start your Indian pale ale journey.
Beavertown Neck Oil Session IPA is an easy drinking IPA beer. Originally a home-brewed beer, Beavertown Brewery wanted to create a light, crisp, punchy, go to IPA beer. With an ABV of 4.3%, kick back, relax, and oil your neck. Beavertown Neck Oil is one of the perfect IPAs to start the journey of craft beers and Indian pale ales. The famous name Neck Oil comes from the founder Logan, remembering his grandad would say he’s off to the pub to “oil his neck” with a pint.
