Session IPA3.8% ABV50 IBU

RateBeer Score    94 Overall   95 Style

Our bright and hoppy session ale. Light and refreshing with 2-row barley, Marris Otter, and a touch of C-45 malts, but hopped up with classic West Coast hops and an ample dry-hop of Simcoe, El Dorado, and EXP 01210 for lively citrus note, and a subtle dank, pine edge.
Session IPA? Nor Cal Bitter? Whatever it’s called, it’s what to reach for when summer arrives.

Food Pairing: Salty, Fried Food, BBQ ribs, grilled meats and curry, Mexican dishes

Awards: (Coming soon...)

Hops: Bravo, Simcoe, El Dorado, EXP 01210, Citra

Grains/Adjuncts: Maris Otter

Yeast: White Labs 001
