COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Prolonged Enjoyment has a huge earthy hop fragrance of green grass, pine, and citrus fruit. The sweet, malty flavors are met quickly by zesty American hop characteristics. This India Pale Ale has a light body but is packed with extraordinary bitterness. Bitter qualities linger briefly, before the mildly dry finish takes over.

A good amount of taste and drinkability for a lower abv beer, kudos for that craftsmanship.Not the usual hop flavour, citrus and the like. Yet the IBU is clearly there if not a bold taste. Drying finish. Lighter yellow with a quarter-inch of retained head.FlandersNed recent.

12oz Bottle. Thanks Sean! Dank fresh orange-scented strong hop aroma. The body at 3.5% is quite good I think. The hops start working their juices and push out pine and resin and citrus. I do get some styrofoam and dusty pellet hop gunk in the flavor, but generally it’s decent. Shorts does have a very distinct house hop flavor that edges seedy to me sometimes. Rather bitter and dry, which works at this low gravity to give you something to sip at a low gravity. Definitely enjoying the hop level at this gravity, but I think the profile could use a little tweaking.

deyholla (6605) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - APR 24, 2012
Bottle. Pours a near clear orange gold with a white head that dissipates slowly to the edges and laces slightly. Aroma is full of earthy hops with notes of grass and leaves with backing earthy bread. Flavor is similar with earthy grass and a bit of grapefruit with backing bread notes.

Bottle courtesy of Jakers90. Served in a tulip. Pours a clear golden color with a pretty nice white head and some spotty lacing on the way down. The nose carries some light citrus hops with a touch of dankness in the background. Flavor is nice, but could use a little more hop flavor against the bitter background. Light body with fairly-heavy bitterness for the ABV. Pretty nice. This is a good summer brew. A session beer all can agree on.

Pailhead (4761) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - APR 15, 2012
Bottle: The aroma consists of citrus, mango, and grapefruit. It pours sort of a transparent golden-orange with a two finger white head that fades to a soapy film within a minute or so. There’s some spotty webbing left of the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with quick dose of grass and herbal notes. The finish has lots of grapefruit, light pine, and just a hint of sweet citrus. It’s light bodied with mild carbonation. Overall, I wish the flavor mimicked the citrus and mango aromas. Regardless, it’s a nice light and sessionable IPA.

Lots of herbal hop aroma and taste. Slightly cloudy golden color. Minimal head. Downside was thin body from lack of malt.

badnewsbeers (2313) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - MAR 29, 2012
bottle. hazy amber with small head. aroma of citrus and tropical fruit pulp, with just a touch of sweetness and bitterness in the finish. flavor is very nice for a session ipa, and the abv is pretty shocking. nice and grapefruity with some nice bitter notes...dry finish. crisp, refreshing, and fantastic if 3.5 is really what this is at
