American IPA's are aggressively hoppy and feature citrus, pine, resin, herbal and other American hop flavors. Among IPA's, the American version is extremely popular with those who enjoy assertive, aggressive hop flavors and aromas.
Suggested Food Pairings
Moderately spicy foods and American IPA's pair well - try spicy sushi, blue cheeses and carrot cake. Also a great choice with pizza! But try to maintain a balance between the intensity of the food and beer. Very spicy foods may become too intense when paired with an American IPA.
