Available August through December, beer drinkers can find First Rule IPA across Ninkasi’s distribution footprint.

“Whatever it is you like about an IPA, chances are you’ll find it in this beer,” says Ninkasi founding brewer and co-founder, Jamie Floyd. “The all-star lineup of hops brings elements that are tropical, floral, juicy, resinous, bubble gum, and downright dank!”
