Barley Days A Sensitive Man Ale
A Sensitive Man is a 3.5% and 25 IBU session ale named after a line from At The Quinte Hotel, one of Purdy’s best known poems, and also the source of the “Contains Fart & Horse Piss” warning on the label.
IPA - Session
The term Session IPA describes a category of beers marketed for their hop-dominant flavor profiles at 'sessionable' levels of alcohol. While this is typically 3.2-4.6% ABV, a few have stretched the definition. This class of beers arose c. 2010 out of the Craft Beer Tradition as a reaction to the trend of increasingly strong beers and greater public appreciation for hoppier profiles around the globe. It is differentiated from American Pale Ale by typically being lower in alcohol and usually having more hop-dominant profiles. While hops used are typically American Pacific Northwest and New Zealand, proprietary/experimental and South African and other hops may also factor into a Session IPA hop bill.
