COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Little General IPA is our unique Chinese-style IPA. Hoppy but not irresponsibly so. The Little General is a balanced, full-bodied IPA made with indigenous unprocessed whole Quingdao flower hops from Xinjiang province. Named after the only patriotic hero to be recognised by both mainland China and Taiwan, the Little General is an act of balanced beauty.
