India Pale Ale
IPA stands for India Pale Ale.
Many craft IPAs are (at minimum) 1.5-2x as strong as your average macro-brewed lager, so drink them more slowly and soak up that flavor.
Why are IPAs so popular? IPAs tend to have a cult following. They're different and interesting and have a different flavor profile than most craft beers, so they have a pretty intense following of all sorts of beer drinkers, from the occasional partaker to the enthusiast.
This means the beers have a higher alcohol by volume (ABV for short). For example, Bud Light has an ABV of 4.2% while the Countryside IPA from Sycamore has an ABV of 6%. Basically, craft beer gets you drunk faster than your typical day drinking light beer.
More people than ever drink craft beer and its crown jewel, the IPA. While the IPA is vaunted, adored and highly rated, it offers a baseline to study more styles and continue along in your craft beer discovery. All of this adds to the reasons why IPA is still so popular.
