Able Seedhouse + Brewery (Minneapolis, Minnesota) has officially announced that Better Selves IPA will join its portfolio of Core offerings on Friday, March 29.
Bearing a name that evokes “an elevation of thought and action”, Better Selves is an unfiltered India Pale Ale “built with a blend of tropical hops including Idaho 7, Bravo, and Ahtanum.” White wheat and oats “balance out the bright citrus tones for a pillow-soft finish and smooth, silky mouth feel” and also supply the beer with a “cloudy consistency and milky straw hue.” Clocking in at 4.4% ABV and “a lower IBU”, Better Selves is “a flavorful, versatile option rounding out Able’s core selection.”
“Better Selves is not a version of what most people would call a hazy IPA,” says Able Head Brewer Bobby Blasey. “Ours is lighter, cleaner, and much more delicate. Often hazy IPA’s have twice the number of hops and a high ABV, which make them much bolder. Better Selves is mellow with an easy drinking nature.”
Better Selves IPA will debut in Able’s Minneapolis taproom on March 29 and distribution is scheduled to begin the first week of April. You can expect to find this Core offering available in 12 oz. cans and on draft at select craft beer-focused establishments located within Able’s distribution footprint in Minnesota. Prost!
