ABOUT
Session IPAs have long divided the brew community. To many IPA aficionados, they're nothing more than "hoppy Pale Ales". We respectfully half-disagree. So we created Half-Truth, a believably tasty Session IPA with all the resinous grapefruit flavour and rich mouthfeel of an IPA and the low alcohol content of a session beer.
