IPA, or India Pale Ale, is a popular style of craft beer that’s adored by many. Its rich history and distinct taste make it stand out in the beer world. At Pure Project, we are passionate about crafting different variations of this incredible beer style—some favorites being the classic, well-balanced, and bitter West Coast IPA and the mouthwatering, juicy, murky IPA. We also love to explore double (and occasionally even triple, quadruple, and quintuple) versions! But what if you could gift the experience of the freshest Pure Project IPAs monthly?

As you may know, Pure IPAs tend to go quickly, especially since we brew in small batches—ensuring every beer release is fresh when it gets into the beer-drinker’s hands. A monthly Pure Hops IPA subscription could be the most sought-after gift for beer enthusiasts, offering them a unique taste of Pure Project’s favorite IPAs every month.

 

WHAT IS PURE HOPS?

Pure Hops is Pure Project’s monthly IPA subscription. You (or your lucky friends) get the freshest, hoppiest, and juiciest IPAs delivered right to your door, each and every month.

A Brief History of IPAs

The British Colonial Era

The inception of the IPA goes back to the British colonial era. A stronger, hop-rich beer was crafted to withstand long sea voyages from Britain to India, leading to the birth of this iconic beer style.

America’s Craft Beer Revolution

Fast forward to the 20th century, America witnessed a craft beer revolution. The IPA was reintroduced with modern twists, featuring bolder flavors and aromatic hops.

 

Why IPAs are A REFRESHING CHOICE

From their robust flavor profiles to their interesting histories, IPAs offer a rich tapestry of experiences. Let’s not forget the plethora of IPA variations, like the ones below!

 

West Coast IPA

Originating from the American West Coast, this beer often boasts a clear, amber-gold hue, with pronounced piney and citrusy hop flavors and a crisp bitter finish. The most common West Coast IPA included in the rotating Pure Hops subscription is our core WC IPA, Pure West.

Pure West glows with scents of pineapple, apricot, and lemon sorbet, and has flavors of grapefruit zest, lychee, and resin that give way to a solid bitter finish, classic to the style.

Murky IPA

Murky IPAs are Pure Project’s version of the New England-style IPA, which are also often referred to as “hazy” IPAs (learn more about our usage of the term “murky” here). The murkiness of these brews is mainly thanks to two things: using high protein grains in the mash and heavy dry hopping at the end—or post-fermentation.

Originating from the northeastern part of the U.S., these beers are known for their extremely hazy, almost milkshake-like appearance. They are often less bitter than traditional IPAs, with a juicy, fruity flavor profile that’s reminiscent of tropical fruits like mango, passionfruit, and pineapple. Our core murky IPA, Diamond Dust, rotates in our Pure Hops shipments. Like Pure West, whenever we have a super fresh batch right off the canning line, we include it!

Diamond Dust shines with a heavy dose of Cashmere from Michigan and hand-selected Mosaic hops from the Pacific Northwest. Its soft and cloudy body is filled with a flurry of flavors including peach, mango, coconut, and grapefruit zest.

West Coast Double IPA & Murky Double IPA

Double IPAs, or DIPAs, are the imperial version of the original styles. DIPAs are higher in alcohol content and are typically bolder in flavor and feature more ingredients than their single counterparts.

We’re always brewing up new DIPAs or bringing back past favorites. Check out what will be included in a future Pure Hops shipment here!

 

WHY the Monthly IPA Subscription

A monthly IPA subscription offers beer aficionados a unique opportunity to explore the world of IPAs through taste. From the citrusy, pine notes of West Coast IPAs to the juicy, fruity notes of murky IPAs, it’s a journey worth embarking on.
