COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Shorty Time is our "Social IPA". What this means to us is that you get all the flavor of an IPA, but in a beer at only 4.8% ABV. At AleWerks, when the work is done and the day is over we proclaim "Shorty Time!!!" and everyone grabs a beer. Expect aromas of tropical fruit and grapefruit, followed by a light malt body and big citrus character.

Foxbush (2170) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - FEB 13, 2018
Draft at the brewery The ale poured a hazy light amber with a white head and lacing. The aroma of floral hops and pine is detected on the nose. There is a nice full mouth hop bitterness. The ale has a medium body with average carbonation. Lingering hop bitterness after each swallow. The taste has some citrus with a well structured malt backbone. Clean crisp finish Nice IPA.

Braudog (6939) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - MAY 19, 2016
Draft at County Grill. Golden straw with an orange tint. It has a bright mandarin orange nose. This carries to the flavor, but there’s also an almost wheaty bit to this. Like a citric, American Wheat ... But not quite that light. (#6195, 5/19/2016)

DCLawyer (2947) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - JAN 20, 2016
4oz draft at Spacebar. Cloudy orange/gold with small offwhite head. Juicy citrus hops, tropical fruit, hint of resin. Has more depth than typical session IPA. Good.

One of the better session ipa’s I’ve had. There’s something different about this one compared to all the other "session beers" this one has a lot of substance and actual body. It drinks like a big beer but still stays true the whole session thing. Really hoppy. This one bursts with big juicy hops. Much better than most run of the mill session beers.

Strykzone (7848) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - SEP 25, 2015
Sampled at gabf. Jst a little white haze in this holden beer. I smell grapefruit and trical fruit. Tasted, too. This is nice. Surprisingly sweet. Complex but subtle. Nice.

This is, by far, my favorite session IPA. Bright hops, well balanced, and supremely drinkable. It’s Shorty Time somewhere.
