This New England IPA recipe was originally published in Brewing Eclectic IPA: Pushing the Boundaries of India Pale Ale by Dick Cantwell.
Beer drinkers have strong opinions, and among of the most polarizing styles are New England IPAs and fruit beers. This beer recipe marries these two controversial beer categories into a beer that might get folks to lay their pitchforks down…at least for a pint!
Expect a truly New England-inspired brew with the addition of cranberry puree, adding a tart counterpoint to the citrus notes of the hops and zest. For even more information on New England IPA, take a look at our Tips on Brewing New England IPA.
