Left Field Brewery Releases Big Train Zero IBU IPA

TORONTO, ON – Left Field Brewery has announced the release of what might be the first zero IBU IPA to be commercially brewed in Ontario.

Big Train (6.1% abv, 0 IBU) is named after legendary pitcher Walter “The Big Train” Johnson, who still holds the major league record for shutouts more than 70 years after his death.

The beer is described as follows:

Rather than the traditional method of adding hops throughout the boil, a large dose of Mosaic and Azacca hops were added post-boil in a hop stand at 75°C to release loads of juicy guava, papaya and orange flavours without imparting any of the bitterness that you might expect from an IPA. Generous amounts of oats and wheat in the grist combined with a massive dry hop make for a nice, stable haze.

Big Train is available now in 355 ml cans at the Left Field taproom and online shop.
