Share and compare memories of the IPA craze with Thandi, Lisa, and Christina. What a proliferation of beer “IPA” describes today! East coast, west coast, double, triple, red, rye, session, micro, brut, Belgian, hazy, fresh-hopped, dry-hopped… and more hopped. 

Dip into some 1700s and 1800s IPA history. Though it was recommended to British brewers to add extra hops to their ocean-going India Pale Ales, did they all do it? Do you suppose the British officers were as snobby about their IPAs then as we are now? Because we’re pretty sure this episode has more IBUs than you can handle.
