Big, bold, and quintessentially American, the American IPA is the style that can be thanked for making hops the star of the show and spurring on the so-called Craft Beer Revolution. A favourite of hop-heads and those who like exceptionally bitter beer, this style is assertively hoppy and higher in alcohol than a pale ale and it displays the resin, pine, citrus, and floral aromas and flavours of American hop varieties. This style is well-suited for some wacky experiments and trends; it's expected to find American IPAs come in black, rye, or with a whole lot of different ingredients chucked in!
It's important to note that this style is so popular that it is created in its hop-loving and big-flavoured form all over the world. So, just because it an American beer in style doesn't necessarily mean it is American in its origin--it could come from anywhere from the UK to Denmark to Australia!
