The 20 best IPAs, according to chefs and bartenders | NBWA: America's Beer and Beverage Distributors

You might think all IPAs taste hoppy and bitter, and you would be mostly right. They get that bitter flavor from their high hops content. In the 19th century, England would ship beer to British troops in India. To prevent it from going bad, extra hops were added, and the alcohol content was increased so the beer would make it through the long, hot trip without refrigeration. Today's IPAs can be divided into regional categories like West Coast or New England. Delish reached out to people in the industry who know a ton about IPAs to ask about their favorites.
