Green Man Brewery’s Wayfarer Summer IPA, will be released at the brewery on May 22 and will soon be available on draft and in bottles throughout North Carolina, South Carolina, and parts of Tennessee. Green Man’s version of a White IPA is brewed with 30 percent wheat and 70 percent pilsner malt for a light, crisp, and easy drinking brew perfect for outdoor summer activities.
“We chose to dry hop Wayfarer primarily with Citra hops as well as Simcoe and Columbus for a big citrus forward aroma,” says Head Brewer John Stuart. “We just lightly filtered it, leaving a bright refreshing color.”
Stuart wanted to create a unique take on a sessionable IPA, hence combining a delicate malt bill with loads of flavorful aroma hops. It is mild in bitterness with an IBU of 45 and an ABV at 5.5%, rendering an approachable brew to all kinds of beer lovers.
