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, slightly hazy golden color with medium white head. Aroma is citrus with some slighy floral notes. Taste is hoppy, pineapple and some faint resin notes, just enough malt for it not being very unbalanced. Light palate, dry and refreshing with a mild bitter aftertaste. Extremely enjoyable for such a low abv, definitely one to keep on stock for the summer.

Draft at Rezervoir Lounge - pours a light gold with a slight haziness . Great citrusy pine aroma . Taste is a little thin even for a session IPA . Kind of bready on the finish . Ok I guess . ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Pours a honey color. Medium sized white head. Some lacing. Nice big hoppy grapefruit aroma. Note that at this point I’m pretty excited. Unfortunately the next step is to taste it. Sadly the taste doesn’t 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.

HopCat in East Lansing. This beer is surprising. Shorts got it right with this 3.5% session. The appearance is a very light gold, and the aroma is surprisingly deep. A good amount of citrus and a large amount of hops seem present, though I don’t know of this is the case. The taste is just as it smells. A bit citrusy and very hoppy. The finish is dry, but hardly lingers.

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.

Nice job. Orange yellow pour white head. Floral pine and fruity aroma. Nice hop profile. Lots of fruity grapefruit notes with some pine in a light body moderate carbonation. Tasty and easy drinking.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours hazy golden orange color with a white head. Aromas of grapefruit, herbal, lemon, pine and grass. Nice and well balanced aromas and taste of grapefruit, herbal, pine, grass, bread, earth, and spiciness. A good bitterness on the finish. Nice session IPA.

Not sure why this is so widely appreciated; I found it to be watered down with grassy / piney hops and a weird marshmallowy taste. This beers palate just couldn’t seem to agree and provided a clash of flavors.
