Summer competition update

After some discussion with Jade, we have a bit more information regarding the style for this competition.  A firm judging date will be set soon, but expect early March.

Session IPA

Max ABV 4.9% (ie less than 5%)

IBU – as a guide 40 IBU+ (but it’s more about perceived bitterness –

an IPA’s got to be bitter!) Can be any variant on the IPA style (eg

red, black, rye etc) In broad terms a Session IPA should be hoppier

and drier than a Pale, for example – balance is key.

This article sums it up nicely:
