Story of Session IPA beer
Session IPA beers have recipes very similar to those of Indian Pale Ales with the only difference being that the mash is shorter. VS
A mash has the effect of reducing the alcohol content and the taste of the cereal in the finished product. The less time a mash lasts, the less the malts will release sugars and cereal aromas into the wort.
The Session IPA style is a style that comes to us from the United States and not from England.
Although the know-how of IPAs are indeed English, certain styles that result from it are not.
Session IPA is one of them because the style originated in California, where extreme temperatures got the better of strong beers.
Some of the best West Coast IPAs come from there and offer on average an alcohol level between 7 to 10%.
In recent years there is a noticeable trend of light beers, while strong beers have been on the top for decades.
