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.

12ounce glass at the brewpub. This pours a ginger hue and has a very small ring of white. The nose is very grassy with wafts that are noticeable from a distance. The first sip is also grassy with bigger bitterness than expected. Carbonation is light. There seem to be west coast hops and some noble hops, as well. There are citrus and sulfer notes that come mid glass. Just a dash of caramel adds light sweetness but this is dry. It is very nice. I have extra admiration for a brewer that can extract flavor and character from a low ABV beer.

@ GABF. Bright dark gold, lasting head. Bright pine and fir hop aroma. A lack of malt sugars hurts the beer somewhat in the palate, making it seem brassy and unbalanced, but it’s overall a good effort on a pale and well-hopped session beer.

It goes some places, but not all the way. Citrus and earthiness, dry finish. Lacks a good maltiness.

Mittenator (1287) - Michigan, USA - MAY 27, 2013
Draft at Reno’s East (from notes). Really light and starts off with some nice citrus and a little pine. The flavors all quickly fade though. Really good for a super low ABV session beer.

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.

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.

deyholla (6608) - 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.

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.

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.
