This is stronger, double, extreme version of IPA. An intensely hoppy, very strong pale ale without deep malt flavors or heavy characters of grain.
The Aroma is intense hop with fruitiness from esters or hops. Usually dry hopped and some even have an an additional resinous or grassy aroma.
On the palate it's medium-light to medium body with smooth alcohol warming. And a overall dry sensation of malt sweetness yet no harsh hop-derived astringency. The Malt flavor is low to medium, and although some caramel or toasty flavors at low levels. Overall a smooth style with a hint of bitterness in the aftertaste with medium to dry finish.
