Outlier Cartel explain the creation of this beer as follows "Whilst pondering how to best bring the subtle flavors of rock melons into a beer, we thought it would work quite well on an oxymoronic India session ale. Initially poised to be a well hopped session IPA à la ‘half the IBU’s, half the ABV’, we ended up halving the IBU’s and ABV’s. This made it an easy drinking pale ale with additional oats to support a smooth and juicy impression that tricks you into thinking it’s sweet – just like freshly made rockmelon juice. We used organic El Dorado hops from BC, and the amazing Huell Melon from Germany to give it a decent hoppiness and retain the name ISA. The rockmelons were ripe and juicy, and we added them into the kettle and the fermenter – a few hours worth of rockmelon juicing later, we had what we were looking for!"
