the short(ish) answer: british IPA is like a hoppier and slightly bigger version of an english bitter or pale ale. think well rounded, malty, slightly bitter, bit of an english dry hop like east kent goldings. a balanced beer, but a tiny bit hop forward.airborn wrote:Thank you
As I've apparently been able to live for 60+ years only distinguishing between likes and dislikes I surely lack some knowledge about tastes in beer.
So in short: I would really like both recipes so I can brew them and learn the differences.
Honnestly I do not know the difference between an English style and an American IPA...
american IPA is a platform to feature hop flavors and aromas, usually higher alcohol but not too rich or malty, more bitter, and with loads of late and dry hops, traditionally american varieties but can be anything, usually heavy with floral, fruity, piney aromatics. a hop bomb.
