Export IPA (India Pale Ale) is a strong, heavily-hopped, British-style ale. This beer features a big malt backbone of 2-row and caramel malted barley. Export IPA has a high level of bitterness from English hop varieties: Pilgrim and East Kent Goldings, which lend a spicy, lemon flavor. The English yeast strain adds a fruity component to the beer.

Export IPAs were first brewed in England for British troops in India during the late 1700ís. To withstand the long voyage, regular pale ales were fortified with more malted barley for a higher alcohol content, and extra hops as a natural preservative. Many believe this strong ale was then watered down for regular troops, while officers and the elite would enjoy the full strength brew. Today, most UK and American brewers recreate this style with an alcohol content around 7%-8% ABV.
