American-Style India Pale Ales are gold to copper or red/brown. Chill haze is allowable at cold temperatures and hop haze is allowable at any temperature. Fruity-ester aroma is moderate to very high. Hop aroma is high with floral qualities, and is further characterized by citrus-like, piney, resinous or sulfur-like American-variety hop character. Medium maltiness is present. Hop flavor is strong, characterized by fruity, citrus-like, piney, resinous or sulfur-like American-variety hop character. One or more of these American-variety hop characters is the perceived end, but the hop characters may be a result of the skillful use of hops of other national origins. Hop bitterness is medium-high to very high. Fruity-ester flavors are moderate to very high. Diacetyl can be absent or very low. The use of water with high mineral content results in a crisp, dry beer. Body is medium. English and citrus-like American hops are considered enough of a distinction justifying separate American-style IPA and English-Style IPA categories or subcategories. Hops of other origins may be used for bitterness or approximating traditional American or English character. See English-style India Pale Ale.
