IPA fans already know that this type of beer is truly meant for hops-loving drinkers. The taste profile is strong with bitterness (from those hops) and smells of citrus, flowers or pine. Because this style of beer isn't shy on the palate, it's best paired with equaling bold foods. Salty snacks like these German soft pretzel sticks and flavorful curries like these chicken curry skewers will stand up to your next pint of IPA.
