Belgian IPA

Inspired by American India Pale Ales and Double IPAs, more and more Belgian brewers (like Chouffe & Urthel) are brewing hoppy pale colored ales for the US market. There's been an increase of American brewers making Belgian IPAs, too. Generally, Belgian IPAs are considered too hoppy by Belgian beer drinkers. Various malts are used, but the beers of this style are finished with Belgian yeast strains (bottle-conditioned) while the hops employed tend to be American. You'll generally find a cleaner bitterness versus American IPAs, and a pronounced dry edge, akin to an IPA crossed with a Belgian Tripel. Alcohol by volume is on the high side. Many examples are quite cloudy, and feature tight lacing, excellent head retention, and fantastic billowy heads that mesmerize (thanks, in part, to the hops). Belgian IPA is still very much a developing style.
