India Pale Ales

I have to begin by saying that the India Pale Ales (IPA) category was the most challenging for our panel this year – simply because we had well over thirty entries to judge/battle through and there were multiple flights in which we had to pare down the results. The good news is we have plenty of good and great options now produced in Alberta. I remember a few years ago we would struggle to find an IPA entered that lived up to the panels expectations. Now, what a great time to be enjoying this classic style of beer. John Papavacilopoulos
