Most craft beer drinkers I know enjoy a good IPA or double IPA, and lord knows we have an abundance of great IPAs to choose from, especially here in the Northwest. Trying to find a brewery or craft beer bar around here without an IPA on tap would be an exercise in futility.
Now, with those long Summer evenings upon us, it feels like we have a few more hours in the day to enjoy all those IPAs. The problem is, too many strong single or double IPAs and you’ll go down long before the Sun does. The solution, of course, is the Session IPA. Session IPAs are designed to be hoppy on the palate but are lower in alcohol, allowing you to enjoy a few more without feeling like it’s time for bed.
Pike Brewing Company understand this so, back for the Summer is their Seasonal release: Pike No. 4 Session IPA. This light and refreshing IPA comes in at just 4.2% ABV, meaning you can throw back a few more while enjoying the game or tossing some meat on the grill, and still be the life of the party.
Here is some more information about this release from Pike Brewing Company:
Seattle, WA: Pike No.4 Session IPA delivers well balanced hop flavors and aroma with a low ABV for summertime fun. This bright and floral session IPA is brewed with Skagit Valley Alba malt and the Ales for ALS proprietary hop blend. Together these ingredients create a clean and bright beer with citrus and stone fruit flavors and aroma.
The beer’s name, No. 4, commemorates Lou Gehrig’s retired jersey number. Pike Brewing Company is proud to be one of seven Washington State breweries who’ve joined Ales for ALS. Pike No.4 Session IPA is Pike Brewing Company’s summer seasonal beer release and will be available on draft and in 22 oz. dinner bottles throughout the summer.
Pike Brewing offers a tip of the hat to Loftus Ranches and Hopunion who created Ales for ALS, to Kraig Knutzen for growing our Alba barley and to Skagit Valley Malting for malting the barley.
