Pyramid Brewing has joined the Session IPA craze with its Ditto Session IPA. This hop forward IPA uses five different hops that will please many hopheads looking for a more sessionable beer that is only 4.5% ABV. Ditto is an excellent enhancement to Pyramid’s lineup of IPAs that includes Pyramid IPA, Thunderhead and Outburst.
The Session IPA category has seen an growth in the amount of offerings available from craft brewers across the United States. Ditto Session IPA definitely embodies this movement while keeping its ABV below the commonly associated 5% ABV threshold. Not quite the body of a Pale Ale but a beer that is a bit more pronounced on its hop bill.
“Ditto is dry-hopped with two Pacific Northwest hop varieties, Amarillo and Calypso, and includes three kettle hops, Nugget, Delta and Chinook,” said Head Brewer Ryan Pappe in a release. “Beer aficionados will taste delicate malt notes infused into the brew with a blend of pale, caramel and wheat malts.”
“Pyramid’s IPA collection enjoys a strong legacy of well-liked, hoppy brews,” said General Manager Robert Rentsch in a release. “With a diverse range of ales, each of our IPA brews features something exceptional and distinctive for the hop lover. Ditto is unique to the line-up with its low-alcohol, high-flavor profile.”
Ditto Session IPA is available throughout Washington and Oregon in six-pack 12 oz. bottles, 22 oz. bottles and on draft. It is also available as a part of the company’s IPA Collection Variety Pack.
