American IPA is often, divided into two categories: East Coast and West Coast. But lines are blurring and definitions are changing. The only thing you have to know about the difference is this: the term “West Coast IPA” usually refers to a more aggressively hoppy, sometimes powerfully bitter, flavor profile. If someone hands you a bottle or can of West Coast IPA, expect classic Northwest hop flavors like citrus, pine, florals, and a strong, unapologetic bitterness. There will still be malt to balance it out, but if it’s a “West Coast” style, it’s the hops time to shine. So-called “East Coast IPAs” are a bit more balanced, with stronger malt component matching the stronger hops component. They’ll still have that pleasant bitterness IPAs are known for, but it’ll be rounded out—not by “bready” malt but a more balancing, even slightly sweet, clean malt. However, no matter the coast, hops are the star.
The glass was specifically engineered to enhance the flavor and aroma of the beer style that made craft beer popular, making it perfect for any lover of good beer.
