An All-American Font for an All-American IPA

Sierra Nevada has a hop torpedo, so why can’t I have a hop bomb? Liberator is a fantastic font that I just had to try for my next craft beer logo after seeing it in a free fonts roundup. I love hops and IPA. Ahh, I feel liberated.

What’s the difference between an American IPA and an English IPA, you ask?

An American IPA tends to be more hop-forward in character. A little more piney—more citrus—especially West Coast-Style IPA’s. English IPA’s on the other hand tend to have more malt character, with notes of caramel and not near as fruity. I prefer American IPA’s. I’m thinking it’s because I’m an American. Although I’ve come across several Americans who prefer an English IPA—go figure!
