What's the main difference between an IPA and a stout?

What’s the main difference between an IPA and a stout?

What is the difference between a stout and an IPA? From flavor profiles to signature ingredients, learn the differences between these two delicious beers.Stout has been around since the mid-17th century, followed by IPA in the 18th century. There is no doubt that discussing the differences between IPA (India Pale Ale) and Stout can be an interesting topic for beer lovers.

Different origins

Stouts and IPAs have different origin stories, although they both originated across the pond in England. The origins of IPA date back to the 18th century, when English brewers created a hoppier, richer pale ale to suit long sea voyages to India. The higher hop content and higher alcohol content are meant to preserve the beer during travel.
Stout, appeared in Ireland and England in the 17th century. It was considered a stronger version of port, with the name “stout” referring to its potency.

different color

In most cases, stouts are darker, coffee-colored, and IPAs are lighter, caramel or amber. This is because most stouts are composed of roasted barley or other chocolate-colored malts. IPAs are usually made up of lighter malts and thus have a different color.
While stouts are always dark, black IPAs have the same dark appearance. This is where things get confusing! These IPAs contain the roasted malts you might find in a stout, but their hop flavor is more consistent with that of an IPA.

Different flavors

Common flavors associated with dark beers include coffee, chocolate, licorice, and even a hint of hazelnut. These decadent, dessert-like flavors are perfect for the consistency of a dark beer. The texture of most stouts is smoother, creamier, and richer than IPAs.

food pairing

The hoppy bitterness of IPA complements spicy foods, grilled meats, and strong cheeses, cutting through the richness and enhancing the experience.Stout’s rich, roasted flavor often pairs well with desserts like chocolate cake, as well as savory dishes like oysters, hearty stews and even cream cheese.

Alcohol content varies

IPAs have a medium to high alcohol by volume (ABV) ranging from 5% to 7.5%, with some specialty or double IPAs exceeding 8% ABV.Stouts vary in alcohol content, but they tend to have higher average alcohol content than IPAs, ranging from 4% for session stouts to 12% or more for imperial stouts.

In conclusion

Whether you’re drawn to the bold bitterness and aromatic hops of an IPA or the smooth, roasted richness of a stout, these beers offer something different for every discerning taste bud.
