Light, a bit thin for my tast. Wide, put not deep palette, good hops, mild malts, but somewhat burned in the edge. Short, but fresh. Low alcohol for everyday use.

Session IPAs have their place in the warmer months during the daytime hours, where drinking a high ABV, full bodied beer just doesn’t seem like a good idea. This Founders offering pours a light bodied yellow gold and exudes lots of earthy and fruit-forward hop notes. Definitely get some clementines, nectarine and grapefruit. Thin bodied mouthfeel with soda-water carbonation. This beer is a showcase of the marvels of dry hopping. Lots of delicious hoppiness packed into a smaller profile. Lacks depth and backbone compared to its APA, IPA and DIPA brethren, but definitely fills a gap for beer drinkers or want something light but wouldn’t be caught dead with a macro light, shandy or hefe.

This Indian pale ale at only 4.7% were said to be the ultimate way to celebrate life’s small pleasures and the perfect gift for a day’s honest work. I could not agree more, after a walk in the garden, this American pale ale (or IPA) is a great brewed experience. Partly cloudy yellow / orange color with a somewhat weak foam, which provide very little lace on the glass. The fragrance is adorned with American hops which provide a nice citrus and pine aroma. A little dry, but what a fresh and delicious hoppy flavor of citrus fruits like lemon and orange. The beer is dry hopped to give a long lasting flavor with a pleasant bitter aftertaste, as the beer seem good and rich, despite the "low" rates. Damn who, however, have a whole box of this wonderful hoppy summer drink.

On tap at a local bar. Pleasant and easy drinking beer. Light and easy to go down. Nice hop flavor but not too strong. Did notice some cardboard like after taste. May be old stock?

Bottle. Hazy copper body with a medium white head. Aroma of grapefruit, pine, flowers. Taste is clean and crisp fruity hops of the tropical kind, with a light piney finish. A really nice example of a "low abv" ipa

Hantti (17) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 26, 2014
The name says it all: easy to drink anytime, but still has a lot of character and flavour! Perfectly balanced hoppy citrus flavour with a solid malt body.

Nordcore (1020) - Lyngen alps, NORWAY - AUG 25, 2014
Bottle 33cl. Light Amber with a minimal white head. Very hoppy nose with some citrus and floral sence. Medium bitter with a nice hippy end. Impressive aroma and taste for this low alc. Beer.

12oz can from a 15 pack. Aroma and taste of pine. Easy to put more than a few of these down. This is currently my go to session beer. Cheers! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

drywallman (329) - Lake in the Hills, Illinois, USA - AUG 22, 2014
This one came in a can from a 12 pack. It pours an amber yellow with a short lived head. The malt was a simple cereal profile with a slight hay component. The hops followed distinctly with a resin/spruce blend and finished clean without an over lingering of hop juice. Definitely All Day material.

Somewhat opaque small off-white lacing foam. Nice bitter hoppy aroma. Floral taste initially, changing real bitter. Lasting bitter aftertaste. (Houston 201408) ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
