In 1993, Harpoon pioneered IPA brewing with this New England classic. It began as a summer seasonal and people absolutely loved it. So did we. So we made it a year-round beer, and its now our bestselling beer and our flagship.
A New England-style IPA finds harmony in the combination of hops, malt, and yeast so that no single ingredient dominates the drinking experience. The blend of malt provides depth in body and color, and is balanced by a pleasantly hoppy finish.
As the definitive New England-style IPA, Harpoon IPA is a beautifully balanced beer. The citrus and pine of Cascade hops complement a sturdy malt backbone and the fruity aromas of our beloved yeast. Brewed in the spirit of fun and sociability, it is wonderfully hoppy but remarkably balanced, and is best enjoyed with friends.
