Yes Yes Y’all
Style: Session Pale Ale
Yes Yes Y’all, and you don’t stop. This session IPA is our tribute to early hip hop culture, when MC’s would freestyle for hours on end, and to fill the gaps in their mad rhymes, would slip in golden phrases such as this beer’s namesake. That’s what Yes Yes Y’all will do; allow you to plug those gaps in your day with somethin’ that punches well above its weight, and then continue on like it ain’t no thang.
Technical tasting notes: Lemon lime hop character over a medium bodied malt base.
