IPA Beer

IPA (India Pale Ale), invented by the British during their efforts to colonize India and send their beers to India. Extreme temperatures and prolonged storage without refrigeration resulted in spoiled beer on the trip. In order to better preserve the beer, the British increased the alcohol and hops levels (hops is a powerful antioxidant). Beer lovers loved this overwhelming bitterness. The IPA was born.
