These hop bines gave birth to Craft Beer as we know it...
Hops have been used in beer for centuries providing vital preservative qualities that prevent the beer from going bad. The iconic Indian Pale Ale (IPA) was infamous for its large hop quantities to preserved the beer, allowing it to be exported far and wide. Brewers discovered that an array of flavours developed in their beers, dependent on the diversity of different varieties of hops used.
The modern IPA can achieve a endless variety of flavours by using different hops, with the ability to replicate numerous fruit flavours as well as vegetal and herbacious aspects such as resinous, floral, or grassy.
