COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
What is Bouncy House? It’s the next step in our quest to brew the perfect low-alcohol, high-flavor, hoppy American ale. We learned a few things from brewing ParadoX earlier this year, like lowering the alcohol content and avoiding the terms "session" and "IPA." When you taste Bouncy House, you’ll taste a modest malt bill of North American 2-row, British pale ale malt, C-60 and Aromatic malt mashed for a refreshingly light body that leaves plenty of spotlight for a melange of Warrior, Calypso, El Dorado and Citra hops.

Ich muss sagen das ich kein grosser Freund von Session IPAs bin und ausserdem hat die von mir verköstigte Flasche schon den langen Weg über den grossen Teich hinter sich. Ich weiss also nicht ob die Hopfenaromen noch vollwertig durchschimmern............aber es ist durchaus erstaunlich wie sehr die üppigen IBUs (61) am Gaumen haften bleiben und durchaus fruchtig und erfrischend ist der ganze Spass auch. Bemerkenswert!!!!! Aus dem CRAFT BEER STORE HH.... 1 fuffzig.

Cunningham (6258) - Halden, NORWAY - JAN 30, 2016
Nice tasty and easy drinkable session ale.
Hazed golden color with a fine white head. Ok lacing on the glass. Ok intensity in the aroma. Medium body and a fine carbonation. Ok balance between sweetness and bitterness. More citrus than citric, malty, and passion fruit in the flavor.
[Bottle from Gulating in Lørenskog, Norway]

PhatB420 (792) - Pittsfield, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 24, 2016
Old 12oz bottle into tasting glass. Pours a mixed caramel gold. Aroma of wheat, pine, hops. Taste of green valleys, mild pine, loose orange peel, saturated melon, off course grain. Mixed well in the boil, this slides down effortlessly, good session.

abemorsten (3443) - Mosterøy, NORWAY - DEC 30, 2015
355 ml flaske fra Gulating Arendal. Klar sprudlende oransjegyllen kropp med et lyst lavt skumdekke. Frisk og innbydende marmelade, furunåler og tropiske frukter i nesa. Tynn, tørr, bitter og humlearomatisk. Et snev av noe metallisk.

Draft at Rattle n Hum West with Brendan. Pours a clear golden body with thin white lacing. Nose is grains and malt. Mouthfeel is light bodied with notes of stale malt, bread, grain and spice. Bland.

Bottle. This is more of a standard, run-of-the-mill, buy-a-six-pack beer than anything else, but you can’t hate it for doing what it does perfectly fine. The flavor is subdued, but there’s still a perceptible IPA hop taste and aroma, and the lowered alcohol level is appreciated in the right settings (at lunch, for example). I’d probably rather have a well made 4.9% APA, but this little guy is a perfectly fine substitute.

hivemind (875) - New York, New York, USA - DEC 12, 2015
UPDATED: FEB 13, 2016 Tap @ Rattle West w James. Watery bland useless. Only worthwhile points are that it’s a bit lively in terms of body/carbonation and the aroma has some wet wet hop character. Way too wet though. Re-rate on 2.13.16 with Erica at Northern Bell. Not as bad as above but not great. Didn’t need to be so harsh.

King_Alex_II (920) - SWITZERLAND - DEC 11, 2015
Orange color with white foam layer. Light sour nose. The taste combines an active carbonation with a moderate sourness and a nice bitterness. Spicy bitter aftertaste.
