TAR (2410) - Lafayette, Colorado, USA - JUL 22, 2013
Hazy bronze with golden highlights. Thick eggshell halo of foam encircles a broken center. Pinesap, peach skin, mango, lemon peel, grapefruit, aspirin and spent tealeaves comprise the uninteresting aromas of raw hops. Hint of doughy yeast and sulfur. Loose, crumbly, fuzzy carbonation. Flimsy body. Opens up with a semi-bright and flavorsome hop medley of ripe peach and orange pith. Bitterness rapidly takes foothold, enveloping the palate with grippy, lightly spicy resins. Brutish high-alpha oils hamper the body as they collide with a pedestrian instant iced tea Crystal character. Hop acids become fatiguingly sour and caustic after a couple swigs. Very limp, poorly defined maltiness reveals the scarcest edge of crisp dryness reminiscent of dried grass. Doughy yeast muddles the already overcrowded body with a tongue-clinging tackiness. Delicate cookie sweetness lines the unrefined finish which showcases more green hops and resins. A stark yet very busy rendition. The hop character couldn’t be more run-of-the-mill (resin and grapefruit anyone?), and the malt comes off as aimless and uninspired. Sure this style should be all about showcasing the hops in all their unobstructed glory, but that doesn’t mean the malt should be neglected as is seemingly the case here (Crystal malt doesn’t have to suck, but they have coaxed nothing interesting or unusual from it). Not exactly clean, either. This is essentially another dime-a-dozen, kitchen-sink-stye IPA, only with less alcohol. Off-putting.

Wonderfully balanced IPA with a nice amount of floral/grassy hops that left me wanting more. Very clean finish. Easy drinking.

Draft: wonderful! I love these session ipas in the summer. Aroma of tropical fruit and citrus. It’s bitter and refreshing, and goes down great in the heat of the sun.

Looked for India Session Ale after ratebeer newsletter. Solid summer choice for hop heads. Foamy light head tending toward bouldering. Tangerine peel on nose. Lemon peel and pine taste. Pallette lingers but not blown away. Very nice.

Bottle. Orange gold with a diminishing foam. Aromas are pineapple and grapefruit with toast malts and yeast. Spicy with lemon and candy sugar. Floral with grain and citrus rind. Flavours are trtropical fruit with bitter lemon and grapefruit. Biscuit and low brown sugar with caramel. Quite herbal, spicy and fruity. Simple yet effective.

This beer was low on alcohol content but not short of bitterness and hop flavor and aroma. Great aroma of hops with a citrus and grapefruit note along with the flavor. Very good session beer
