New Beer Thursday: The Original Hot IPA
It’s not every day you witness the birth of a new style of beer. Behold, HOT IPA. You’ve heard of Cold IPA, but that’s old news by now. Stuff moves fast. Hot IPA is (probably not) destined to be the next major trend in beer. What is it, you ask? It’s a hybrid style that employs expressive old-world yeasts that prefer warmer temps—we’re talking Continental Europe, not Scandinavia, here—with a grain bill and hopping schedule you’d see in a Hazy IPA. Tons of oats, wheat, spelt, Citra, and Strata hops combine with a dry, crisp body, and a rustic ester profile that brings lemon, orange, and spice to the table. Crisp, zippy, quaffable, and aromatic, Hot IPA is everything we want in a hoppy beer.
