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.
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:
Get brewing folks!
