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

Crafted with the most sought-after hops, First Rule IPA is a testament to brewing without limitations. Ninkasi’s brewing team developed this recipe almost in secrecy, using the best hops available.

“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!”
