Double IPA (DIPA)
DIPA is a variant of India Pale Ale (IPA). IPAs were originally brewed and exported to India for the British troops. Hops are a natural preservative and so this beer was heavily hopped to last the journey. As a result, IPAs are higher and alcohol content and more malty than the standard Pale Ales.
While over the years the alcohol content of IPAs has been lowered (to reduce tax in the price!), Double IPAs are a stronger, hoppy variant of IPAs - usually over 7.5% ABV. The style has been adopted by craft brewers in San Diego County to such an extent that double IPAs are also referred to as "San Diego Pale Ales".
