La Nouvelle Bière: Barrier Brewing Company Unimperial IPA


Creation: Unimperial IPA

Creator: Barrier Brewing Company

Date of Birth: 02/04/12


Description: Session DIPA – 4.00% ABV. A session double IPA? We’ll admit, at first glance it sounds like a gimmick, but let us explain. As brewers we love hops, and every now and then nothing hits the spot quite like a good Imperial IPA. But sometimes we wish there were a way to enjoy all those big, bold, aggressive hop flavors without all the alcohol. Introducing Barrier’s Unimperial IPA, a session ale that drinks like a double IPA, or is it the other way around? Packed to the gills with Zythos, Centennial, Cluster, and Nugget hops, with more kick than your average India Pale, it’s the latest installment in our continual pursuit to prove that just because it’s low ABV doesn’t mean it can’t be awesome!


Consumption Location: Press 195

Super Neat Three-Word Feelings: Clean. Grapefruit. Straw.
