Big on hops, low in alcohol! Big Little Guy Session IPA follows in the footsteps of many commercially-produced session IPAs by delivering a big hop punch without harsh bitterness. In addition, the ABV is kept low, so that you can have several in a session and not fall flat on your face! This Founder's All Day IPA clone includes a combination of Amarillo, Simcoe and Crystal hops that fill out the hop profile, delivering a delicious burst of hops on the pallet that do not linger or become overly bitter. A blend of crystal malts, dark wheat and flaked oats contribute sweetness, body and mouthfeel to balance the beer out. With a quick turnaround, this beer is incredibly easy to make and can be ready to drink quickly! In a few weeks you'll be sitting on the back porch, enjoying several of these with friends. Cheers!

Big little guy
Great IPA. I have made 3 batches. I substituted cascades instead of the amarillo on one batch, and liked it best.

Session IPA
Sampled after 4 days of being kegged was ok, let sit another 4 much better. Gotta be patient. (Not easy)

'Nuther drained keg
At SWMBO's request, I added an IPA to my keezer lineup that did not, as she put it, "knocked me on my @ss." This session IPA did the trick. Lasted all of 20 days in the keg, and that included a 5-day trip away from home. The nose is excellent, the taste smooth, and each sip just begs for another one. Awesome beer, folks. :-)
