Ithaca Beer Green Trail Easy-Drinking India Pale Ale Release Details
On Thursday, February 20th, we are adding to our year-round beer line up of beers. We’re adding an everyday, drinkable companion to our intensely hoppy, incredibly popular, Flower Power India Pale Ale. It’s called Green Trail Easy-Drinking India Pale Ale. Green Trail will ship out to wholesalers Monday, February 24th and make its way onto store shelves and draft lines around the Northeast shortly thereafter.
Don’t let the “easy-drinking” part of it’s name mislead you. Green Trail still delivers a mighty hop punch, but also has a smooth malt body that masterfully balances that famous Ithaca Beer hop intensity. Green Trail has “instant hit” potential with die-hard hop heads and new craft drinkers alike. Weighing in at 6.0% ABV, Green Trail neither overwhelms taste buds nor underwhelm palates as sessionable and approachable IPAs often can. Ithaca Beer’s lead brewer, Bill Ballweber put it best, “Green Trail is just a perfect everyday, go-to, instant-crowd-pleaser IPA.”
“What is Green Trail?” one might ask. For founder, Dan Mitchell, Green Trail is a mindset. “It’s about blazing a path that sets you apart from the norm, or that way of thinking out of the ordinary. It’s on that green trail, you often, grow, discover, experience and hopefully improve your surroundings just a little bit…we’re on the Green Trail around here (at Ithaca Beer), are you?”
