National IPA Day 2013

Happy hoppy day for that's what draws most to IPA's are the hops. Today is National IPA Day while this isn't my day, I'm a Stout Month person but I know so many who love IPA's.

The IPA was first brewed in England for export to India but now it's anAmerican favorite. If you go to England and order an IPA don't be too surprised if it doesn't taste like the IPA you're used to drinking. American IPA is more hop forward and in some cases, hopped stupid.

Here in the Boulder area are many places that are celebrating the IPA.
Upslope Brewing will have their IPA, Imperial IPA, Rye IPA, and Thai IPA.. They will have 5 of the Imperial IPA single hopped with different hops, Cascade hops, Columbus hops, Summit hops, Galaxy hops, and Simcoe hops. News flash! Upslope is cracking open their Cabernet IPA aged in oak barrels!
Backcountry Pizza and Taphouse will have 50 taps of IPA's.  Anthony, the head chef at Backcountry is probably gearing up today's specials just to complement the IPA.

West End Tavern has been celebrating IPA all month long with their Jul-IPA. 20 taps have been replaced with a rotating list of IPA's. Tonight is also a IPA beer dinner at the restaurant.

Or just visit your favorite brewery, taphouse, or brewpub and enjoy National IPA Day!
