COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Looking for a beer with a bit lighter alcohol content? (What? Why? Just kidding! We all enjoy a great-tasting beer with less alcohol so we can drink A LOT MORE of it!) Our brewers created Alpha Session Ale with the same big flavors as an IPA, but lower alcohol content… so you can drink more of them. I’m definitely not complaining about that...
Hopped with Simcoe, Citra and CTZ.

brokensail (16486) - Dublin, California, USA - JAN 17, 2011
A: The pour is a light copperish color with a small white head and some sticky lacing. S: Man, lots of really great hop aromas. Juicy citrus fruits like grapefruit, tangeringes, and oranges. There’s a light pine aroma to it and some underlying bread/biscuit malt. T: Such an intense flavor for a low gravity beer. An intensely fresh hop flavor of grapefruit and tangerine. Plenty of pine and citrus peel bitterness with just the slightest malt flavor. M: The body is light with a lively carbonation that helps bring out the big hop flavors. D: One of the best low gravity beers I’ve ever had. So easy to drink and amazingly flavorful.

Bomber from Bine & Vine. Pours gold with a fizzy/creamy white head. Nice aroma of citric/resin hop over caramel. Near med body. Flavor is a little thin, the caramel is a bit up front, but it’s very, very bitter. Citrus and resin to me. Quite tasty.

This beer pours a clear golden-yellow color with a medium foamy white head that dissipates slowly. Rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of herbal hops and malt. Light-bodied with flavors of grassy hops, zesty citrus and bready malt. The finish is mildly bitter with a lingering fruity hops aftertaste. Well-executed sessionable APA all around.

"Not a total surprise, as I expect good stuff from Drake’s, but holy hell this was good! All the wonderful hop goodness without any residual sugar or alcohol to "get in the way". What surprised me the most about this beer was that I loved the feel. Not watery at all, and the beer just dances on your tongue. Wonderful citrus and grapefruit aroma, with a hint of pine, with a long lingering bitter finish. Right up there with the Stone session pale as one o the best low abv beers I’ve had."
