Reddish iPA

I took some influence from the Red IPA that I brewed back in October 2018 but was going for something a little bit lighter in colour, bitterness and AVB. I also took some influence from the recently brewed NE IPA and Lazy Hazy by including some of my new favorite hops – Mosaic. Is it a Pale Ale? Is it an IPA? Is it a Red IPA? I think it’s somewhere in the fuzzy area where these pseudo-styles overlap, so let’s call it Reddish iPA! (note the lower-case ‘i’)

Tastes like a lighter PA/IPA. Well it is just 4.5%. Easy drinking. Good!

    I had a go at a Red IPA. Next one I do I’ll use different hops with some lower AA varieties.
    Although it is still very drinkable it’s just a bit too bitter.
