IPA

The India Pale Ale: the world's undisputed favourite craft beer style. The IPA is known for being stronger and more bitter than its cousin--the pale ale--and was pioneered in England in the early 19th century. This style is championed in its traditional form by many breweries throughout the UK. The American version is a bigger bolder sort and is noted for its grapefruity, piney, and citrusy flavours from the American hop varieties.

The IPA is exceptionally well-suited for experimentation so breweries around the world just love to tinker with it: Belgian-style, imperial, black, rye, hops, hops, hops, and more hops! So, whether it's a traditional English IPA from the likes of Thornbridge and Ilkley, an American hop-bomb from Founders, or an Imperial IPA from the Danish breweries of ToØl and Mikkeller--there are just so many reasons to love the India Pale Ale.

An innovation of the 18th century, English IPA was brewed as a beer that would survive the long voyage to India. The extra hops acted as a preservative, as well as imparting distinctive aromas and spicy, earthy flavours. 

American IPA as the name suggests uses American hop varieties, so look out for citrus and pine aromas. The style that kicked off the craft beer revolution, American IPA is well-suited to experimentation, so expect to see some interesting flavours and wacky ingredients added to this beer.

Double IPAs are more intense versions of American-style IPAs, so you'll see more hops and more malt. They tend to have a higher alcohol content, but ‘double’ here doesn’t necessarily mean double the strength. Double IPAs aren’t really session beers, but are perfect if you want to savour a brew.

In terms of service and speed of delivery Beer Hawk performed well but in terms of the beer selection, it is not for me. I bought two cases, one was a selection of Scottish beers and the other a mixed case of Great British beers, thirty bottles all told. Unfortunately most of them where produced by brewers who are over infatuated with new world hops, not so much a beer but more like grapefruit juice. I do not dislike citrus hops but I like the recipes to be balanced and in the majority of cases they were not. Thinking that I was just unlucky, I had another look through the British beer list this morning, a disappointing selection, so I will not be re-ordering.
Absolutely fantastic service, great range of beers (that are hard to find in the UK) and rapid delivery! We would 100% confidently recommend Beer Hawk to anyone. We've never had a problem with the service, items are well packaged and each time we have ordered our items have arrived in two days... which is nice! Keep up the great work Team BH because we love it!
Awesome quick delivery and the guys and girls that run the place have a great sense of humor!
