We tweaked Inversion IPA earlier this year to bring down the ABV to increase drinkability. But, our true Inversion IPA fans did not agree. So, starting in September, Inversion is back to the higher ABV of 6.8%.

Inversion IPA brings floral hoppiness before revealing an immersive malt body with a bitter yet balanced finish. Our classic IPA is anything but expected.
