The powerful antagonist of the West Coast IPA comes from the opposite coast of the United States and counteracts the western bitterness and overwhelming hop intensity with just as much hops and a generous amount of malt. The East Coast IPA appeared a little later and combines heavy hop notes with sweet malt. The aim is a finely balanced harmony of bitterness, fruitiness, freshness and sweetness. The malt acts as a soft base for the hops and cushions the violent bitterness with grainy sweetness.
Two Chefs’ interpretation of an East Coast IPA appears in the Evolution of IPA series and represents another milestone in the development of India Pale Ales. The Dutch version of the West Coast IPA is brewed with the two hop varieties Mosaic and Simcoe, the balancing elements are barley, wheat and oats. The three types of grain not only ensure that the bitterness does not get out of hand, they also give the beer a wonderfully velvety-soft mouthfeel and a strong body. The beer is aromatic with the taste of freshly harvested blueberries and sun-ripened peaches. The bitter units are cleverly intercepted by the malt filling and reduced to 45 IBU. The full 7.0% alcohol content is so cleverly integrated into the taste that you hardly notice it.
