 First Rule IPA Joins Ninkasi's Special Release Series, Available August - December 2017

EUGENE, Ore.—Aug. 10, 2017—It’s no secret Ninkasi Brewing Company has a hop love affair. This continues to be evident in its newest Special Release Series beer—First Rule IPA. Originally released to Ninkasi’s Rare & Delicious Series in March 2017, the brewery is proud to elevate this beer to its Special Release Series in 12 and 22-ounce bottles and on-draft. Available August through December, beer drinkers can find First Rule IPA across Ninkasi’s distribution footprint.

Crafted with the most sought-after hops, First Rule IPA is a testament to brewing without limitations. Ninkasi’s brewing team developed this recipe almost in secrecy, using the best hops available. The result? A flavorful IPA with an incredible hop profile featuring El Dorado, Calypso, Mosaic, Simcoe, Citra, and Amarillo hops.

“Whatever it is you like about an IPA, chances are you’ll find it in this beer,” says Ninkasi founding brewer and co-founder, Jamie Floyd. “The all-star lineup of hops brings elements that are tropical, floral, juicy, resinous, bubble gum, and downright dank!”

    First Rule IPA doesn't seem to be in the Bay Area yet -- specifically, the Palo Alto area. Hoping it will make it's way down to our neck of the woods. Have been big Ninkasi fan and promoter since "discovering" it at Bandon Dunes on a road trip up to the PNW, upon which we made a last-minute decision to add Eugene (and a trip to Ninkasi) to our itinerary. Keep up the great work! We appreciate all you do to bring us tasty beverages. :)
