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.

HonkeyBra (3358) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - OCT 10, 2011
Sampled at GABF 2011. This beer sits bright golden in the glass with a white head. Big, grassy hoppy aroma with very mild malt sweetness. Flavor is crisp and hoppy, little malt backing whatsoever. At first it seems a bit odd as the mouthfeel is quite thin, making it come off as almost like a hop soda. The hops come off piney and grassy. This is certainly different, however considering the low ABV Iím going to have to bump this up a few points. Iíd really like to try this again.

Pailhead (4783) - 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. Thereís 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. Itís light bodied with mild carbonation. Overall, I wish the flavor mimicked the citrus and mango aromas. Regardless, itís a nice light and sessionable IPA.

Fukito (735) - Sao Paulo, BRAZIL - MAR 29, 2013
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.

TheAlum (5687) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - AUG 11, 2013
Draft on tap at The Beer Spot GTMW Eve Event at Brickhouse (Madison, WI). Pours a nice deeper hazed shady orange hue. A dulled glow, nice egdes. Frothy whitish head atop dies to a decent filmy layer, laces ok. Aromas are grapefruit rind, juice, and a bit of lemon. Some more rind oils, juicy quality, some gentle bready malt. Dry and firmly citrus driven. Initial is small body, light, and dry. A bit bitter. Small body lends itself a decent bitterness, touches of soap, florals, mellow grapefruit and citrus. Not as powerful as the nose. Middle is small bodied, decent with some session qualities. Some decent fruit, bread, dry grainy feel. Backend is dry, firmly bitter for itís size. Some resiny and rind qualities. Grapefruit, lemon, oils. Finish is dry, resiny and rind driven. Nice rind presence and citrus flavor without being tart, real bitter, or pulpy. Nice session beer.

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 donít 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.

Hazy amber beer with a huge pale cream coloured head. Lovely nose of pineapple, mint, pine and tropical fruits. Palate is light and airy and a little crisp. Minerals. Thin malt, a little cream. Slightly watery hops, little pineapple, marmalade, pine and mild tropical fruits. Finishes crispy with a touch of lime. Yellow grapefruit aftertaste. Nice complexity here - but it could have done with more intensity.

DrSilverworm (6321) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 11, 2013
12oz bottle, thanks to umich03jm. Bottled 03/21/13. Mostly hazy golden orange color. Half-finger thin bubbly white head. Good thick rows of lace. Lighter body. Good crisp lighter carbonation, more dry in the finish. Very nice grassy hop aroma, nice earthy hop, some herbal.. Light bitter, light sweet, little zesty, bit of savory taste. One of the better satisfyingly hoppy session brews Iíve ever had.. Love that itís such a low ABV, too. Itís not unquestionably a "session brew" until itís below 4%
