Note the El Dorado hop variety in the list of Ingredients in addition to Citra and Mosaic that are used in many of our other beers: this is responsible for that wonderful tropical fruit (mango, pineapple, tin of fruit salad!) aroma which this beer has in abundance. The taste is also deliciously fruity with a refreshing hop bitterness. We have also added oats for more body and spelt for a creamier mouthfeel.

The idea behind the Summer Session IPA is that it will be a seasonal release: each year in May we plan to release a Session IPA – a Session ale because people like to drink lower ABV’s in warmer weather and an IPA as that is the most popular beer variety in the Irish market.

ABV 4.5%, EBC 12, EBU 25



Malts: Pale Ale, Oats, Spelt, Biscuit Malt, Acidulated.
Hops: El Dorado, Mosaic, Citra.

We’re recommending Sunshine and Friends as excellent pairings for the Summer Session IPA. Kormas, sweet and sour dishes or some blue cheese would also be good accompaniments.
