Summer is always a good time to try new India pale ales, and today’s look brings Ninkasi Brewing’s Beer Run IPA to my pint glass. This is a new brew and is a seasonal.

As you can see in the promo video, this IPA pours clear. The brew was perfected using feedback from runners to give them a beer they could enjoy post-run. Well, I’m not a runner, but I’m a cyclist, and I can tell you this beer is a refreshing and crisp IPA that I’d enjoy on a hot day after a workout.

What does it taste like?

Beer Run IPA has a thick head as I poured it out of a 22 ounce bomber; however, it’s light in hoppy profile, despite it’s 90 IBU rating. The beer smells fruity, like a cross between orange and peach.┬áThe flavor isn’t overly bitter. It’s fruity and sweet and is quite refreshing on a hot summer day.

Should I buy it?

If you like IPAs, yes, you should!
