Pale ales have been around for a LONG time. They may not look all that pale in colour sometimes, but compared to the darker-coloured drinks that were popular before them, they’re pretty light. They're hoppy and rich with some citrus zest and fruit flavours in there too. IPA, APA, and Hazy IPA are all types of pale ales. Depending on the type, the ABV can range from 4% to 12%.
