Legbreaker is at the lower alcohol end of the spectrum for IPAs, which means a couple of things.
Firstly, it means those big flavours - the ripe burst of peach and nectarine, the cut grass and pine, the bright guava being lifted up alongside thick caramel and biscuity malt, the pronounced bitterness - are not just a blunt instrument. They’re not the result of metric tonne of malt and hops being thrown in to amp it up in every way imaginable, but of a careful crafting and balancing of ingredients to gain a whole lot of flavour without creating a booze bomb.
Secondly, it means you’re less like likely to feel your legs go wobbly the moment when you start in on your second one.
