WOW! I don’t usually love a beer this much but I just can’t contain my excitement. For someone who always appreciates session IPA’s, this is a new winner in my book. Did you see the alcohol percent on this beer? 3.8%! That is the lowest alcohol percentage I’ve seen on a session IPA. I’m seriously impressed.
What also impresses me is the beautiful color, the AMAZING hoppy aroma, and the wonderful carbonation. This can is a classic design that reminds me of canned beer from the early 90’s. Not that I was drinking canned beer in the early 90’s but you know what I’m saying.
Basically, this is the ultimate summer beer. Canned beer makes it perfect to bring out in the backyard while doing yard work, to the beach, pool, or backpacking. You really can’t go wrong with this session IPA. Plain and simple, I love it! Anyone wanna buy me another six pack? Ours only lasted 3 days of working outside on our deck (again!). Will we ever finish this project?
