Deep Geekology: Do IPAs Vary By Region?
Ruminating from Leeds, Ghost Drinker ponders:
In my latest IPA post, there was quite a call for West coast and East coast IPAs from America to have their own style categories. I can sort of see why. I can see a big difference between English and Scottish Ales and they're only a few hundred miles apart. I guess it makes sense for Ales that are a few thousand miles apart to be a little different...He then asks for examples of classic examples of East and West Coast IPAs as a way of illustrating the difference. I have thoughts on this, but I thought it would be more interesting to elicit yours. The questions are these
- Do different regions of the country make IPAs differently?
- If so, what are the differences?
