Great Lakes Releasing Sunnyside Session IPA as Summer Seasonal


TORONTO, ONGreat Lakes Brewery has announced details of a new summer seasonal brand that will be arriving later this week.

Sunnyside Session IPA is a 3.9% abv and 25 IBU ale made using Citra, Cascade, Mosaic, Equinox and Amarillo hops. It has the following tasting notes:

Looks as beautiful in your glass as a lovely summer day at Sunnyside Beach. Gaze into the sun to get an idea of the colour of this unfiltered (brilliant gold, hazy) tasty treat, which is protected with a snowy head, reminiscent of white caps rolling on Lake Ontario. The citrus aromas leap from the glass with each gentle swirl. Lemon is the most prominent followed by pineapple and a touch of grapefruit. It’s so aromatic that you’ll want to forgo the sunscreen and apply generously to your person. Light body, juicy and refreshing, the same aromas make their way onto the palate, which are elevated due to the soft carbonation and mouthfeel. A dry finish with lingering pineapple notes, Sunnyside has all the flavours of a big GLB IPA packaged into a remarkably drinkable session ale.

Sunnyside Session IPA will make its debut on Saturday May 14th at Summerhill LCBO in Toronto where Great Lakes will be taking over all four taps at the growler station, offering samples and growlers of the new beer along with THRUST! an IPA, Gilligan Is Still Dead Guava Saison and Simple Life Grisette.

Following the launch, Sunnyside will be available at LCBO locations throughout Ontario, as well as at the Great Lakes retail store, selling for $2.80 per 473 ml can.
