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.

Gachupines (1248) - USA - AUG 25, 2014
Cloudy yellow with a big white head. Aroma is not very hoppy, getting notes of wheat. Flavor is really light, there’s a bit of what and mild bitterness. Not much hops to speak of. Really misses the IPA portion of session IPA. Wife: 3.2

It pours golden with a haze to it. It has a moderate off white head. It has aromas of stone fruit, a bit of floral, and some caramel. It has flavors of stone fruit, caramel, floral, and a bit of pine. It has a moderate body on the light wide with a moderately bitter finish. Overall, it is an easy drinking session ipa with moderate malt backbone.

August 13th, 2014 - Great Divide’s lasso may be a session IPA, but it delivers enough flavor to engage, even here in the din and chaotically perfumed place of a pizza parlor. The foam is a solid 1.5cm of pearly, translucent bubbles, and the body is a clear, baseball mitt brown, colored with use, but not ragged and stained. The aroma is light and hoppy, with a hit of freshly unwrapped bubblegum to give it a Belgian finesse. And the body (again, contrary to the beer type) is full bodied, with a nice moderate hops profile. Grains delight and dance on the tongue, while a very mild hops speaks just above the din. As a session goes, I like this, and am confused by Ratebeer’s withering scorn and score (as of the writing of this review the score is a mere 3.24.)

Solid session. Big bitterness, some grapefruit, lots of hop bite. Medium bodied. Forgettable but good drinker.

mansquito (5307) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JUL 29, 2016
From a Sampler Pack: pours orange with a white head. Aroma is light citrus and bready malt. Taste is pretty bitter and rather malty for a session IPA. Not a bad beer but nothing to write home about.

McGarnigle (619) - Rochester, New York, USA - JUL 25, 2016
From a 12-pack. Good hit of hops here, definitely on the bitter side (not much of a malt backbone). Grapefruit and orange pith, maybe. Long aftertaste. Bottle of hops.

after4ever (7577) - Brier, Washington, USA - JUL 21, 2016
12-oz can. Pours a murky medium amber with a loose white head that sticks around, leaving plenty of stringy lace. Biscuity nose, medium caramel, tangerines. Creamy light body, flabby carb. Light caramel and biscuit on the mid palate, modest bite from the hops. Off finish.

12oz bottle. Poured a hazy golden color with a smaller sized off white head. Some fruitiness, citrus and toast.

tfontana (691) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 3, 2016
Can pour into shaker glass. Aroma is floral and bready malts. Appearance is clear golden yellow with nice sparkle, 2 finger-width foamy white head with poor retention but fair lacing. Taste is mix of bitter floral over bready malts. Palate is light-to-medium bodied with thin texture, average to lively carbonation and bitter finish. Overall, a flavorful session IPA with all the right features (light, not terribly complex) but a little on the bitter side for me.

tomer (2905) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - JUN 26, 2016
At a tasting, thanks, small creamy head, a touch hazy orange color, shrubby slightly piney mineral aroma, empathic herbal slightly grapefruit bitterness with a touch of malt and pine behind. Feels a bit off and smelly but still fair and drinkable.

DSG (11600) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JUN 19, 2016
Can shared at a tasting at kerenmk’s place. Hazy golden with a white head. Aroma of citric hops, a bit stale. Flavor is quite dry, with moderately bitter citric hops. Light to medium-bodied.
