Maiden the Shade Summer IPA
Bold and drinkable, this summer-style IPA captures an impressively balanced hop complexity. An adventurous hop bouquet of eight select varieties is complemented by the use of flaked barley to create a beer that is as robust as it is easy to sip. Kick back and enjoy!

This beer has been dubbed a summer IPA. Powerful combinations of many different kinds of hops give it a big hop profile. We added flaked barley to the beer to make for a smooth body and a lighter summer-style IPA. Another Ninkasi cult favorite!
