In this episode, we discuss a recent hot topic in beer: East Coast IPAs vs West Coast IPAs. The IPA originated in England and was first updated into an American version on the East Coast, when American hops were used with English ale yeasts. Then, brewers on the West Coast grabbed it and took it to another level with hop character and bitterness and that became the generally accepted standard when anyone mentioned “an IPA”. But then the East Coast made a comeback that blended their original version with characteristics of the West Coast to create hazy, golden, malt-driven hop bombs that beer lovers fell in love with. And that’s when the battle began over which type was better. Here, we discuss both styles and brewing methods to get what you want out of them.
