The first in a series of quarterly IPAs (this one brewed in collaboration with our friends over at Rainhard Brewing) showcasing the cutting-edge of IPA styles, this is NOT your ordinary session IPA. Pre-chilling the whirlpool before adding the hops minimizes bitterness, allowing for a focus on the citrus character of the hops, and oats make for fabulous mouthfeel and an easy-drinking, flavourful light beer experience.
