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.

Bottle, pours a hazy orange with white head. Aroma is floral and grassy hops. Taste is grassy and earthy as well, with a decent amount of bitterness. A good amount of taste given the low abv.

Smell reminded me of a clean clothes smell that I had once really good actually, head on this beer was actually annoying prolonged and not enjoyable, still get the hops you want from a ipa but without the bite, because the alcohol level is lower, really good job with flavor still great beer

Nothing not to like in the aroma. Light hazy appearance. Looks watery. Full flavor to start. Very good for a sessionable ale

Cloudy golden pour with a huge head. Crazy carbonation here, may be a problem bottle. Aroma is full of passion fruit and other tropical fruits. Insane carbonation. Mouth stings due to this. Taste is really light. Hints of citrus and a little passion fruit. Really dry finish. I just canít get over the insane carbonation here. Kind of ruined this beer for me.

tectactoe (2173) - Michigan, USA - SEP 26, 2014
Bottle: Bright, vibrant orange & golden pastel body with a large bubbled head; easily a half-inch thick, lasting for over half the glass. Somewhat tropical aroma; mandarins, tangerines, light pineapple & mango perhaps. Pungent, earthy hope notes with a light oily resin. Very grassy. Watery body, spicy white pepper, herbal, & ashy hop notes up front with a backbone of tangerine & grapefruit peels; pretty bitter, front to back. Pith & rind rather than flesh. Thereís a strong, "dirty" character that I get from the hops, like an intense earthiness that isnít meshing perfectly well. Low alcohol makes this seem more perceivably bitter. Light body, dry finish.

Pour out of 12 oz bottle, hazy orange pour with white head, aroma brought orange peel, grapefruit, spice and a hint of floral notes into some caramel, toffee in there. Taste is a mix of grass, grapefruit, yeast, spice, some orange, hints of caramel, finishing bitter.

Patrickctenchi (3942) - Coxís Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - AUG 8, 2014
Bottle: Cloudy yellow/amber with a small, off-white head. Strong grapefruit/orange-peel aroma. Taste is sweet orange and pine... Slight spicy peel bittering. Drinks fairly full bodied for such a light-weight. Nice.

Bottle. Pours a honey color. Medium sized white head. Some lacing. Nice big hoppy grapefruit aroma. Note that at this point Iím pretty excited. Unfortunately the next step is to taste it. Sadly the taste doesnít live up to the excitement caused by the aroma. I pick up some citrus and pine, but it seems very watery. I get the fact that its got to be hard to make something with such a low ABV, but it really seems watered down. Plenty of respect to Shorts to put out something that you can drink all day without feeling the effects, but it really is just ok. Not able to compete with Founders All Day IPA session ale in taste.
