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.

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 (7050) - 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 (5521) - 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.

kseecs16 (1207) - Naperville, Illinois, USA - JUL 2, 2014
Bottle. Pours a clear copper amber with a foamy off-white head. Prevalent hop aroma has spicy and citrusy notes. Balanced with a biscuity malt body up front and dry herbal hop finish. Quite drinkable, yet unremarkable. Full carbonation.

tmoreau (2528) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - JUL 2, 2014
On tap at the Beer House in Yorktown Center, Lombard, IL., and shaker served showing a clear, amber/gold color, with a persistent, billowy/frothy, white head, and draping lace. Even keeled nose of sweet citrus & pine, a little dankness, and a touch of tropical scent as pineapple. Light to medium bodied, with moderate, lingering, citrus & rind hop bitterness. Hop centric, but nicely balanced & drinkable for a C’s IPA.

BK7 (744) - Turner, Oregon, USA - JUL 1, 2014
On tap at Sparky’s. Light citrus, pine and caramel. weak in the middle and not much of a finish. Would rather have a Great Divide APA.

rader58 (789) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - JUN 29, 2014
12oz bottle. Pours clear honey color. Aroma of citrus, grain, pine. Very low aroma. Flavor is spruce, caramel, citrus. Overall, not a bad beer. It has enough character to make it drinkable. It isn’t a real standout though. Something that I would choose for the lower alcohol content, but still with a nice hop to it.
