OVERVIEW

American craft brewers can take credit for reviving India Pale Ale since introducing their interpretations of the style to the American market in the 1990s. Brewed to bold levels of hop aroma, flavor and bitterness, American IPAs are perhaps more akin to original English IPAs from the 1800s than any others today. The American hop varietals in American IPAs take fruity, citrusy, floral, piney, resinous aromas and flavors to much higher levels than in standard American Pale Ales. Ranging in color from pale gold to orange to deep copper, some American IPAs are clear, and others may be hazy if dry-hopped or left unfiltered. The intense hop bitterness in the best American IPAs predominates over medium, clean malt levels, making this a no-apologies American beer style with hop character that picks up where American Pale Ale leaves off.

The Reinheitsgebot, in addition to being a long and funny word, is the name of the Bavarian Beer Purity Act of 1516. It made it illegal to brew with anything other than barley, water and hops. (Yeast had yet to be identified by Louis Pasteur.) Flash forward to today and the vast majority of commercially available beer is brewed in accordance with, or with deference to, this arcane law. And yet, long before the law existed – thousands of years earlier – every culture brewed beer with whatever was flavorful, bountiful and delicious and grew beneath their land. American craft brewers are bringing this adventurous spirit back to the brewing landscape.

My brewery, Dogfish Head, has built its reputation for brewing extreme, exotic, extraordinary beers with “nontraditional” ingredients like chicory, licorice root, maple syrup, honey, pumpkins, raisins and brown sugar. This may sound freaky – or perhaps rebellious to “traditional” brewing practices – but it turns out that history has proved these are indeed traditional beers. You may say this refers to ancient history, and you’d be right!
