The India Pale Ale was created purely out of the 2 Tones’ love for IPAs, as well as the rest of the craft beer drinking world. Widely considered the most popular style of craft beer, the IPA is meant to showcase the exquisite flavors and aromas of the hop flower. While many breweries at the time were focusing on how balanced or how bitter to make their IPA, 2 Tones was focused on how to achieve the perfect hop character. So they kept the malt bill simple and let the hops do most of the work. After many renditions and tinkering with hopping techniques and hop schedules, the 2 Tones IPA was developed. Low to moderate bitterness was achieved, at the same time bursting with tropical, citrus, and floral hop flavors and aromas. A crisp, clean, dry but perceptibly sweet beer was born. A new age IPA that will leave hop-lovers gratified. This beer went on to win Best in Show at Barley’s Brewing Company’s annual homebrew competition in 2013.
