In this article, we will explore the benefits of choosing a Silly Session IPA, highlighting the characteristics that give it an unforgettable tasting experience..

What is an IPA?

Origins and Characteristics

IPA, or India Pale Ale, is a style of beer that originated in the 18th century in England. At that time, British brewers faced a challenge: how to preserve the quality of their beer during long sea voyages, especially to the British colonies in India?

The solution found was to increase the beer’s hop and alcohol content. Hops, in addition to imparting a characteristic bitterness, have natural preservative properties, while higher alcohol helped prevent microbial contamination. Thus, the India Pale Ale was born, a stronger and more hoppy beer, capable of withstanding the difficult conditions of the sea voyage.

Modern IPAs are distinguished by their strong bitterness, intense aromas, and color that varies from golden to copper. They are generally brewed with a wide variety of hops, each contributing particular aromatic notes, ranging from floral to fruity, to resinous and citrusy. The alcohol content of IPAs can vary, but it is generally in the medium to high range.

Over time, IPA has become very popular with craft beer fans, creating various versions and regional styles. Its success lies in its rich and complex taste, which can be adjusted according to personal tastes in hops, bitterness, and aromas.

IPA Varieties

There are several IPA variants, each offering a unique taste experience:

  • Classic IPA: Balanced between bitterness and hop aromas, with a medium to high alcohol content.

  • Double IPA or Imperial IPA: More intense in alcohol and hop flavors.

  • Session IPA: A lighter version, with low alcohol content and moderate bitterness, while retaining the characteristic IPA aromas.
