IPA Recommendations Please

Recommended Posts

I like India Pale Ale but find the American-style IPAs produced by most Australian brewers to be too heavy and malty for my taste.

 

Can anyone recommend an IPA that is lighter, crisper and 'hoppier' (ie: more bitter)?  I believe this is called the 'British style'.

Holgate do a nice IPA (road trip), but if you like something less malty, more "hoppy" then go for the Mt Macedon Pale Ale - imo one of the best ales in Australia right now.

Pirate Life hands down make the best IPA and IIPA in Australia. Not sure if they would be to your tastes though. 

 

Vale IPA is pretty good value. It's a bit lighter, tastes great and you should be able to find it at Dans. There are a few others but I don't think you'll find them outside of SA.

Hands down this is my favorite in this style (not for the faint of heart though as it a flavor bomb that packs quite a punch at over 7%abv

Coopers Sparkling is an English IPA I'm told. I find it quite a heavy drink. Alcohol is 5.8%.

Has the alcohol content dropped? I thought it was more than that.
