Beer Style Session: IPA
IPA or India Pale Ales are beers that focus on bitterness and hop profile. Originally made with extra hops to withstand long sailing trips they have evolved into a "cult" beer style in the USA with many breweries producing them. Session IPAs are made with lower alcohol content.
Appearance: Pours a hazy, honey color with a ½-inch head
Aroma: Nice citrus hops on the nose, smells like a bigger IPA. Piney, tropical and citrusy hop aromas
Taste: Grapefruit, spice, lemon zest, green onion hints on the finish
Mouth-feel: Starts a little creamy, but finishes dry
Overall: Session IPA's are really doing well these days. What I like about this one, is the fact that even though the alcohol content is low, the IPA flavors are there.
This session IPA is not as balanced as some of the others as the flavors appear in different places. This is especially true with the green onion notes on the finish.
This is a limited release beer from Southern Tier and is available now at $9.99 per 6pk nr.
