Second only to lager, India pale ale (better known as IPA) is the UK’s favourite type of beer – and why wouldn’t it be? It’s full of magnificent malts, plus, it comes in a huge range of flavours. The widespread popularity of this style has encouraged countless breweries to put their own spin on this hoppy classic, meaning there’s an abundance of them to try.
With a wealth of options to choose from, how can you find the perfect one? Don’t worry, we’ve put our expert knowledge to good use, by picking out some of the best IPA beers on the market.
We know that Beerhunter fans adore a bottle of BrewDog, and the beloved brand itself certainly knows a thing or two about IPAs. BrewDog has released a plethora of unique variations of this drink over the years, such as their tasty grapefruit-flavoured IPA, Elvis Juice.
In fact, their first-ever brew was the iconic Punk IPA. If you like a classic beverage, this is a superb starting point. It’s one of the best-selling beers on our website, so you know it must be good!
Another popular pint amongst the Beerhunter faithful is Beavertown Brewery’s delicious Neck Oil. These creative cans are full of colour, and their contents have the character to match.
Officially classed as a session IPA, this is a beverage you can glug with ease at any time of the day. Its crisp, light taste makes it one of the most refreshing beers that money can buy – it’s no wonder it’s such a hit!
Fun fact: its name was actually inspired by the founder’s grandfather!
Across the pond, Stone Brewing Co. offer a West Coast style of IPA and it’s fair to say they’ve nailed it.
Revered by critics for its hop-heavy nature and use of sweet malts, Stone IPA has a remarkable reputation. Its vibrant, clear orange colour means it’s pretty easy on the eye, too. Want one? Fear not, you can get it delivered in the UK when you shop with us!
Beer is for everyone, and that includes those on a gluten-free diet. This is exemplified by Magic Rock Brewing’s gluten-free IPA, Fantasma (wicked name, right?)
Don’t be fooled, what this tipple lacks in gluten is more than made up for in flavour. Its hazy appearance is the gateway to a world of malty goodness, packed with plenty of fruity, tropical mangos. Plus, at 6.5% ABV, there can’t be any doubting that this drink really packs a punch. P.S. it’s vegan-friendly as well!
Better yet, all of these brilliant bottles can be enjoyed from the comfort of your sofa. You just need to browse our collection and order them straight to your door. So, what are you waiting for, get shopping, now!
