HALF - TRUTH
SESSION IPA

4.5%
ABV
CURRENTLY UNAVAILABLE

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.

Malts: 2-Row, Flaked Oats, Carafoam, Crystal Light, Acidulated
Hops: Columbus, Simcoe, Centennial, Amarillo, Chinook
Yeast: Vermont Ale
