Just as the Summer Session IPA is a seasonal release, so too is its wintery sister: each year at the end of the summer we will turn our thoughts to a Winter IPA, still a refreshing sessionable ale at 4.5% ABV but a darker, maltier IPA, to reflect the change of season. The combination of five different hop varieties gives a delicious piney, citrusy finish and the rye gives a lovely spicey backbone.
EBC 35 EBU 40 ABV 4.5%
Malts: Pale Ale, Munich,Rye, Crystal, Acidulated.
Hops: Magnum, Centennial, Simcoe, Citra, Amarillo.
Yeast: American Ale
PAIR THIS WITH:
Now that summer is over we are looking forward to pairing the Winter Session IPA with woolly jumpers and crisp winter skies. On the food front, we are recommending tacos, fajitas, or Mexican food in general.
