India Pale Lager
This category is defined by the prominence of modern hop varietals that contribute significantly to the overall character of the beer. Color can vary from pale through dark. Aroma is moderate to strong with clear influence from modern hops. ABV ranges from a few percent ("session") through 10% or higher ("imperial"). A key attribute of this style is that the beer is fermented with lager rather than ale yeast, thus generally combining a clean lager finish with amplified hop aromas and flavours.
