Greenskeeper Session IPA/Overprint Imperial IPA

March 14, 2019

Wake up everyone, it's Greeny season! This week Walt, Adam, Chris and Mark enjoy warmer weather and the perfect companion Greenskeeper as it returns to the shelves just in time for a round of golf, greens keeping or just about anything you enjoy. Big citrus hop flavor that doesn’t overpower, medium body, and a low ABV allow for prolonged enjoyment through even the longest of afternoons. This is an IPA that deserves a day off.
