4 Hop Session IPA

Category: Session IPA

Date Tasted:
Country: USA
Alcohol: 4.44%
Minutely hazy gold color. Interesting, smoky aromas and flavors of fire pit and lava, grilled citrus and baguette, and grapefruit blossoms with a supple, vibrant, effervescent, medium body and a tingling, interesting, medium-long finish with notes of grilled root vegetables and romaine, white cigar ash, mulch, and miso finish. A curious, smoky IPA that mashes up rauchbier and IPA in a table-centric manner.

Session IPA's are lower alcohol, "sessionable" beers with a similar flavor profile and style as American style IPAs. They are deep gold to amber in color and usually fall below 5% in alcohol unlike their boozier counterparts, American style IPAs. They are characterized by floral and citrus hop aromas and a distinctive hop bitterness on the finish.
