This English IPA is different than it's American progeny in a couple of ways. The main difference is the type of hops and the flavor those hops impart. The English or British IPA has a hop flavor that is more spicy and earthy and less piney or citrusy than the American version. It also gets a biscuity flavor from the grains that you don't typically find in an IPA. The colour (or color for you on this side of the pond) is a nice coppery hue. This is the original cause for the stiff upper lip the Brits are so well known for.
