This style has its roots in the pale ale revolution of the 19C. The term bitter though, did not emerge until the early 20C, possibly to distinguish it from the equally popular mild. This modern version has a much more complex hop blend than a traditional bitter, and (in this case) the specific style is derived from the distinctive hoppy and aromatic qualities of the Durham White beers.
