    I’m gonna pick up these 6, and as many more low-cal IPA’s as I can find (I recall seeing around 10 at my local “TWS” store, and I’m also gonna do a blind tasting. It was session IPA’s 4-5 years ago that got me into IPA’s in the first place, and needless to say, now I’m into giant DIPA’s and Imperial IPA’s with abv ranging from 7-12%! so I need to go back and throw some lower abv’s into the mix! Thanks for your article!

    Kinda weird result here. One-y absolutely crushes the competition to my palate (and the palates of a lot of other people). Definitely the most IPA like and good beer, not just good lowcal/low carb beer. Flyjack is a close second, and slightly mighty was atrocious the last time I had it – might have been a bad six pack as I don’t remember it being that bad, but it is not even as good as Lagunitas Daytime.

    With fewer carbs than a Michelob Ultra, you can probably find Scrimshaw at your local Grocery store. It is the best of the low car beers.

      I’ve been doing some digging on Scrimshaw and I’m pretty positive it is 11 grams for carbs per 12 ounce (as opposed to the other number floating around which is 2). I also reached out to North Coast several weeks ago and got nothing back in return.

      Sidenote- when I thought Scrimshaw was 2g per serving I had five of them in a weekend- Gained 6 pounds that weekend (I also had pizza).

        *edit* I wrote everything below based on the Northcoast Brewing nutrition data chart that has been making rounds for the last few years. Recently this has been updated by Northcoast and they did additional testing, as reflected here: https://northcoastbrewing.com/changes-in-scrimshaw-nutrition/ If the original numbers had been correct, the below maths would have been correct – but the total calorie content was not correct in the initial testing.

        _________________________
        North Coast has their own published table of all of their beers with the total calorie count, as well as their carbs. There are 100 cals per bottle, and it is a 4.5% ABV beer. That means that 85% – or ~85 calories – come from ethanol. There are then 2 grams of carb and 2 grams of protein. That’s ~16 calories, bringing the total calorie content right in line with what is published.

        .045 (abv) ×1905.733 (cal in 12oz pure ethanol)÷100 (cal in beer) = ~.8575 or 85.75% of the calories from ethanol – 85/86 calories

      Yes, I would have liked to include that one in this blind tasting, but I don’t always get to choose the beers.
