COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
LASSO is the new frontier of India Pale Ale. Brewed with a robust roundup of Columbus, Centennial and Cascade hops, its sessionable simplicity proves bigger isn’t always better. But make no mistake – the Wild West hasn’t gone mild. That same untamed IPA spirit thrives, and we reckon this’ll go down mighty fine.

ben4321 (3790) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUL 24, 2014
Location: 12 oz bottle from Buy Rite, 7/24/14

Aroma: The nose is on the lighter side, citrus (mostly grapefruit), grains, and floral notes
Appearance: This one pours a murky gold-orange color with a thin head and streaks of lace
Flavor: The flavor is mild sweetness, with a clean, light-medium hop bitterness
Palate: The body is fairly light, with a solid mouthfeel, average carbonation, and a dry finish
Overall Impression: This is another solid Session IPA. Not my personal favorite in the style, but I can certainly see its appeal, and I’m always happy to see more in this style. As far as I’m concerned there really can’t be too many (and there are already quite a number) low ABV IPAs.

Pours clear gold color with some foam that recedes and leaves a little lacing. Floral and citrus nose. Taste is caramel, grapefruit and light hops. Easy to drink, good session IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a clear golden orange. Hints of citrus, lemon, honey on the nose. Medium bodied, with hoppy bitterness (especially on the back of the tongue). Caramel notes, honey, lemon zest, grapefruit, resin, and pine flavors. Not the greatest IPA, but not bad either.

VsXsV (2175) - Linköping, SWEDEN - JUL 20, 2014
Draught at Akkurat. Almost clear deep golden liquid with a medium off-white head. Aroma of earth, floral hops, grain, citrus, tea and bread. Taste is dry and medium bitter with notes of earth, floral hops, grain, citrus and wort. Light to medium bodied with medium carbonation. Nice but maybe a bit tired.

_angst_ (2588) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUL 18, 2014
Draught @ The Rover. Pours golden with a frothy offwhite head that slowly dissipates while leaving some sticky lacing and trace on the glass. Smell is tiny sweet and tiny fruity with caramel, grapefruit juice, orange zest, lemon zest, moist grass, pine needles and unripe pineapple. Taste is tiny sweet, bitter, tiny fruity and tiny malty with dark bread, caramel, grapefruit juice, orange zest, lemon zest, moist grass, pine needles, unripe tropical fruits and hints of buttered biscuits and resinous wood. Mouthfeel is round, slightly astringent, slightly watery and light bodied. Finish is bitter with buttered bread, grapefruit juice, orange zest, lemon zest, moist grass and pine needles. Not too fresh but still quite drinkable...

The complexity was average, but I really liked the low ABV for an IPA. Good solid beer but not one to write home about.

Ibrew2or3 (6782) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JUL 8, 2014
12oz bottle pours with a clear copper body that has thin gold edges and supports a light tan head. The modest aroma offers up sweet malts, a mix of fresh mango and citrus candy and then it gets into a bit of spicy to floral hops near the end of the draw. The taste delivers pleasing malt sweetened yet punchy fresh citrus hop bitterness that’s largely grapefruit and tangerine like. It then slides into light notes of floral hops, spicy earthy almost dank hops and a nice faint drying earthy tea note. This is a solid 5% brew with plenty of yummy fresh flavors, balance and harmony. Is 5% an imperial session IPA?

Cornfield (5452) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - JUL 8, 2014
This pours a clear golden body with a ring and some film in lieu of a head. The aroma is predominantly grapefruit and zest with the lightest touch of a generic pale malt sweetness. The flavor is mostly orange zest, an earthy bitterness, and almost no malt presence. Odd drink.

bottle. clear orange with a medium, whipped white head. enticing blend of floral and citrus aromas. a little bit of vanilla cake from the malt bill with tropical fruit, lychee, peach, and floral hop notes. medium body. not particularly dry. one of the ’bigger’ session ipa’s i think.
