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.

umich03jm (3512) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - APR 3, 2013
Bottle. Pours a very cloudy yellow-orange color with very little head. Potent aroma for such a light beer. Musty, dank hops. Picking up a lot of pineapple, grass, flowers, tropical fruit, lemons, and herbal hops. Taste is all fresh hops, just like the aroma. Mostly lemons and grass but there’s other hops too. Light sweetness, light bitterness. Very little malt taste. Smooth finish. Fairly thick body, surprising for such a light abv. Definitely one of the best session APA’s or IPA’s I’ve had.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours hazy golden orange color with a white head. Aromas of grapefruit, herbal, lemon, pine and grass. Nice and well balanced aromas and taste of grapefruit, herbal, pine, grass, bread, earth, and spiciness. A good bitterness on the finish. Nice session IPA.

Acid303 (674) - Barcelona, CATALONIA, - JUL 7, 2015
35.5cl bottle, served in Shaker. Pours orange with two fingers of froth on top. Good lacing. Citrus, tangerine, and pine on the nose. Similar taste with some toasty notes added. Very dry finish, quite unexpected, but anyway pleasant for those who like that. Medium mouthfeel, perfect carbonation. A really good Session IPA.

blackflag321 (701) - Lansing, Michigan, USA - MAR 26, 2017
Bottles poured to pint glasses. This is a terrific session IPA with characteristics that masquerade as a higher ABV beer. Nicely balanced citrus and bitterness. Finishes well without weakness of some session beers.

HonkeyBra (4044) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - OCT 10, 2011
Sampled at GABF 2011. This beer sits bright golden in the glass with a white head. Big, grassy hoppy aroma with very mild malt sweetness. Flavor is crisp and hoppy, little malt backing whatsoever. At first it seems a bit odd as the mouthfeel is quite thin, making it come off as almost like a hop soda. The hops come off piney and grassy. This is certainly different, however considering the low ABV I’m going to have to bump this up a few points. I’d really like to try this again.

Pailhead (6543) - Rochester Hills, Michigan, USA - APR 15, 2012
Bottle: The aroma consists of citrus, mango, and grapefruit. It pours sort of a transparent golden-orange with a two finger white head that fades to a soapy film within a minute or so. There’s some spotty webbing left of the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with quick dose of grass and herbal notes. The finish has lots of grapefruit, light pine, and just a hint of sweet citrus. It’s light bodied with mild carbonation. Overall, I wish the flavor mimicked the citrus and mango aromas. Regardless, it’s a nice light and sessionable IPA.

Fukito (1064) - Santiago, CHILE - MAR 29, 2013
Bottle, slightly hazy golden color with medium white head. Aroma is citrus with some slighy floral notes. Taste is hoppy, pineapple and some faint resin notes, just enough malt for it not being very unbalanced. Light palate, dry and refreshing with a mild bitter aftertaste. Extremely enjoyable for such a low abv, definitely one to keep on stock for the summer.

TheAlum (7164) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - AUG 11, 2013
Draft on tap at The Beer Spot GTMW Eve Event at Brickhouse (Madison, WI). Pours a nice deeper hazed shady orange hue. A dulled glow, nice egdes. Frothy whitish head atop dies to a decent filmy layer, laces ok. Aromas are grapefruit rind, juice, and a bit of lemon. Some more rind oils, juicy quality, some gentle bready malt. Dry and firmly citrus driven. Initial is small body, light, and dry. A bit bitter. Small body lends itself a decent bitterness, touches of soap, florals, mellow grapefruit and citrus. Not as powerful as the nose. Middle is small bodied, decent with some session qualities. Some decent fruit, bread, dry grainy feel. Backend is dry, firmly bitter for it’s size. Some resiny and rind qualities. Grapefruit, lemon, oils. Finish is dry, resiny and rind driven. Nice rind presence and citrus flavor without being tart, real bitter, or pulpy. Nice session beer.
