Truth is, everyone has a birthday. And when you want to celebrate, this Session IPA is a gift to the senses. Made with 6 different hops, this bold brew is refreshing enough to enjoy again and again. Now, make a wish and blow out the candles. But don’t tell anyone, or your wish won’t come true

Growler thanks to my pal Vince. Dry, crisp, and chuggable. A hint of citrus followed by a torrent of hoppy, grassy, bitterness. Excellent beer.

Aroma: lightly fruity and hoppy; Appearance: clear light amber pour with thin white head; not much carbonation; Taste: follows nose; definitely not aggressively hoppy or bitter; smooth; Palate: medium body with long, slightly bitter finish; Overall: pretty good; carbonation may have been affected by brief stay in freezer; would definitely get again if looking for a session IPA.

canary dog (743) - Rutland, Vermont, USA - SEP 22, 2016
I am always a little leery about this type of beer: the low alcohol IPA. Why? Because if I want these lower levels of alcohol, and want to have a session, I will drink something more delicious and quaffable, like a good German Pils. IPAs are for brief sessions, or one-offs, and are better for the one or two beer buzz. Nonetheless, this is a fine tasting brew and I can see why it is so highly regarded. Leery or not, I would buy another 6 of these.

Slipstream (2461) - USA - SEP 15, 2016
Past the best by date but still good. Weren’t IPAs originally brewed for long ocean voyages? Fairly bitter and dry on the palate, with flavors of leafy green vegetables and a little caramel. A bit astringent but still smooth. The aroma is dank and a little weird, with touches of cheese and fruit. I enjoyed the label a lot, with its picture of a cake covered with hops.

Bullit (4428) - Burgos, SPAIN - SEP 15, 2016
Bottle from Van Pernis. Amber coloured with an off-white head. Aroma is resin, pine, bit of citrus, with some caramel. Flavour is caramel malts and grain, with pine hops, citrus and some sticky resin flavours. Pretty good.

Boutip (5898) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 7, 2016
Bottle: Poured an amber color ale with a nice large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of citrusy hops with light earthy notes is enticing. Taste is dominated by citrusy notes with some earthy flavours with more bitterness then I was expecting. Body is full for style with good carbonation. Good but bitterness was more apparent than I was expecting.
