With a low ABV beer it is difficult to smack you over the head with hops, however we have thought of a way around this... Little Things that Kill will sneak round behind you, cut your hamstrings, then when you are on the ground, smack you over the head with hops.
This beer will have the same malt and body each time, but the hops will change depending on the whim of the brewer. This is the closest thing we have to a session beer so drink it (responsibly), followed by another and another.

500ml bottle (Birofilia2014, Zywiec) (6:3+:6-:3:11=2.9)
Gold, large spongy head. Simple hoppy aroma, citrus and US hops. APA-like mashy malty body. Crisp carbonation. Some OK hops, but mash too plasticky and stodgy. Under-attenuated for my tastes. Unexceptional pale bitter.

Scopey (8999) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 18, 2014
Bottle at ma maison. It pours clear golden with a decent white head. The nose is soft and fruits.....mango, peach, grapefruit, tinned pineapple and a touch of piney resins. The taste is crisp, bitter, orange peel, grapefruit, mild sweetness, toasty grass, light pepper and dough, with a dry finish. Light-medium body and moderate carbonation. Crisp, bitter and refreshing. What more do you need in a session IPA???

Hazy gold beer, big fluffy white head. Palate is airy and crisp. Light pale malt, touch grainy. Pithy orange hops, thin and a tad bitter. Light dry finish. Lacks the usual clean feel and brightness but okay.

Bardzo bardzo dobre sesyjne ale. Piana gigantyczna zbita aromat pomaranczy i innych cytrusow. W smau dosc tresciwe, subtelne zarazem. Smaczne i po prostu pyszne. Swietne do salatki. Niesamowicie metne piwo. Calkowicie zabarwione na pomarancz. Polecam ten babowy chmielny aromat wszystkim

Bottle at home in London - picked up at Kris Wines. Pours clear, bright yellow-gold, moderately effervescent with a large, lasting white froth head. As soon as you open the bottle the hop aroma bursts forth, teeming with grapefruit, lemon and mild grass. Get the nose way in there and you can also pick up a bit of hay and biscuity pale malts. There is a light sweetness to the flavor but overall itís fairly dry and with minimal bitterness, which is great for this ABV - I hate when brewers attempt a low-ABV beer, ramp down the sweetness and keep the bitterness ramped up. Itís a great recipe for an unbalanced. beer. This little thing is light in body with average, massaging carbonation. It finishes crisp and dry with hints of flinty minerals, stone fruits, lightly dried out grapefruit, some rindy bitterness, nips of grass. While this batch of the series doesnít quite equal the success of the previous batch - which I thought was world class - it certainly deserves a seat at the table. Itís nicely balanced with a quenching aftertaste that leaves you needing another sip.
