3.69/5  rDev -8.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Undated 12 oz bottle served in a Belgian snifter. Consumed just after another session pale ale: the exceptional Two Beers Trailhead ISA.

A - White foam overflowed the bottle upon opening, and rose quickly on the pour, preventing a full pour into my over-size snifter. Sudsy foam has good retention and leaves globs of lacing on the glass. The fluid is fairly clear and orange-amber in color.

Aroma: Grapefruit and generic citrus peel with a solid bready malt backbone and hists of yeasty spices and tropical fruits. A bit vegetative.

Taste: hoppy with plenty of grapefruit, hints of tropical fruits and generic citrus, with some baked bread (malts).

M - Body is near medium, with a very dry finish and crisp carbonation. Excellent excepting a light astringency. .

O: compared to the Trailhead ISA, this one is less fruity and more earthy, with, I would guess, some English hops. Marginally fuller mouthfeel and better looking [once the massive head settles a bit], but otherwise less appealing than the ISA. It does have even lower ABV. Recommended.

This foamed up big time when poured...and tasted a little tart? Wtf... guess it's infected. Single purchased at Coffee Grounds in Eau Claire, WI.

Pours a bright orange, good clarity with rising carb trails. Copious foam at first, dwindles away after a few minutes, leaving lots of chunky lace in the glass. Suspended sediment particles visible.

Hoppy aroma, while somewhat subdued, it's nicely botanical with a slight citrus edge. Wondering how old this is now.

Tastes oddly tart and bitter like aspirin, an unpleasant astringency ruins it unfortunately. Not much flavor to speak of, seems like a shell of it's former self. Will seek out a fresh bottle to re-rate.

Hopsession is my first Super Pale Ale. I am not sure what is suppose to be super. Is it super pale? Or is it a super beer all around. Well, let's find out. The beer pours a deep yellow color with a very ambitious cap of foam. This is one of the more heady pale ales that I've had. The aroma is dominated by the pine and citrus characteristics of west-coast hops. The citrus is more toward lemon than grapefruit in this case. Very carbonated on the palate. It begins with a kiss of caramel malt before it leads into an expansion of hops, again citrus and pine. The hops provide a nice balance to malt. A solid foundation sets up a pleasant experience. This beer is quite tasty and definitely sessionable. I am not sure it quite clears the bar of being absolutely super, but it certainly approaches it.

Look out! Foam bomb incoming! Pours a messy foamy mess, that's for sure, and looks like a dark yellow ale...sheets of lacing. Smells like an ale, maybe hinting at hops, but balanced overall on the malts. Taste is bready, then hops, and then dry....a super scrubbing fizz bomb this is too! Ultra scrubbing, calculus chewing carbonation..the highest I've had in some time, nothing tame here. Mouthfeel is dry and slightly watery, but creamy at the middle and end, and not really too watery. I'd drink a few more of these. Good!

Thanks to eawolff99 for this one. Served in a Half Acre pint glass. There's a date code but I'm not sure entirely what it means: 15/21/217/12/16:53/8. I'm guessing it's the 217th day of 2012, so August 4th?

A - White foam settles to a thick cap and a few splotches of lace. Transparent golden body with a few stray bubbles.

S - Nice mix of grapefruit citrus and spicy herbs, hint of tropical fruits, and a fairly neutral bread crust malt backbone. Surprisingly hoppy for a beer that is closing in on 3 months old - guessing this was refrigerated?

T - Taste is also heavy on the grapefruit, with some floral and piney notes. There's a hint of doughy malts in the periphery, before yielding to moderate bitterness that surprises for a 4.2% beer. A tad astringent, but not offensively so.

M - Body is on the lighter side of medium, with a super dry finish and tons of residual hop oils and resins. Drinks bigger than the listed 4.2% although it's still a tad watery.

D - Pretty nifty stuff here. Tons of hop flavor, even with a few months of age. The hop bill is a little old school compared to something like Fluffer, but this is a pretty solid Session IPA. I could easily have a few of these in an evening, and it's superior to the low-ABV offerings available locally, except for maybe Callow Knife.

Pale yellow with a bright white head that leaves a thin lace Brilliantly bright and fruity nose full of grapefruit, mango and a hint of lemon over a light, bready malt. The sessionable part of the beer is the 4.2% ABV, but a small malt bill doesn't lead to a light mouthfeel. Smooth chewy mouthfeel with a assertive, grassy hop bite that loses some of the fruit from the nose.

Delivering a hop bite is always a relative matter. Bigger the beer, the more hop is needed. Brau Brothers does a nice job of creating a smooth American hop delivery vehicle without making it thin. Hopsession is a great go-to beer to have in the fridge for the summer. According to the website, it's only around until 100 Yard Dash comes out in the fall. I'm going to assume from this sixpack (and some of the BA reviews), that'll it'll come back again soon.

Big thanks goes out to MBrausen for sending this one my way probably for the sole-purpose of ticking it! Thanks buddy! Served from bottle into a Samuel Smith imperial pint. Poured a golden yellow-orange with a five finger ever-growing slight off-white head that remained throughout. Maintained phenomenal lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, citrus, citrus hop, floral, floral hop, and fruit. The flavor was of sweet malt, citrus, citrus hop, floral, spice, and spicy hop. It had a light feel on the palate with high carbonation. Overall this was a fairly good brew. I can honestly see why they called it a Super Pale Ale. It’s not because of how hoppy it was, but it was due to the depth of hoppiness going on in both the aroma and flavor. I wish the flavor would have been a little more balanced though to take it to the next level, but it was still pretty nice. Definitely worth your time to try if you get the chance.

Here's another new one from li'l ol' Lucan, MN, Brau Brothers Hop Session Super Pale Ale. Alc. 4.2% by vol.

Label is the most expressive and creative from BB yet. Nice design.

Crystal clear, pale golden color, quarter inch milky white head, leaving lace.

Aroma: pineapple and mango with grapefruit on the side, lemon spritz and orange peel. Fresh, vibrant, and alive. Lordy, that's lovely.

Taste: lean, clean, and fresh as the morning dew. Exquisitely consumable, with a light body, and very minor, crisp malt presence. Gigantic bitterness that camps out, then lives on the palate. Thin mouthfeel, but the unrelenting hoppiness overcompensates for that, and the ease of consumption makes this truly remarkable.

At only 4.2%, it's easily sessional, and does not skimp on the hops. The only problem with that is that the increased hop bill brought the price way up. I may feel like tossing back one after another without a care, but at $11 a 6-pack, that is a bit hard to justify.

Glad I was able to come across this yet before the summer left without me sampling it.
This brewery has come a long way in a short time and this is a fine example. Sweet hop aroma with mixed fruit, flowers, perfume and soft grass.
Very clear gold with white head that drips the lacing
Hop flavors all the way with a streak of nicely flavored bitterness that lingers. Enough malt to balance and it gives just a shot of flavor.
Light body, as would be expected and moderately carbonated.
This is a very nicely done beer and it being a session beer makes it even more special.
My congrats the brewers and brewery. Fine job.

Tasted 30 July 2012, reviewed from notes. Been wanting to try this for a while, but I've been out of town.

Pours a very clear golden orange. One finger of almost-white head, which faded quickly, leaving decent lacing.

Smell is super hoppy. Big juicy citrus, some tropical fruit, pineapple, some orange, and a bit of pine in the back. Incredibly fruity. A very robust aroma for such a light sessionable beer. Totally hop-dominated; can't pick up any malts in the smell, but I can tell they're there by the lack of emptiness.

Taste is good. Mildly bitter with a bit of a twist. Has a slight tart flavor that makes things a lot more interesting. It's an acidic fruity flavor that's sitting on the back and sides of my tongue, and adds quite a lot to the often-dull pale ale flavor.

Surprisingly mouth-filling. Very dry in the finish. Feels like it balloons up in my mouth, then gets sucked back out.

Smell is definitely the highlight, but I wish those hops came through more in the taste. I like it, but it doesn't blow me away. Very good, but not on the level of Zombie Dust, for example.

Sleeve at JL Beers, Downtown Fargo, ND (July 27, 2012). From notes.

Pale straw and clear. Nice head and lacing. A mild fruity hop nose, but I was expecting more. A good hop profile in beer with a light base. Fruity and light piney notes though not overwhelming the grainy notes of the body. Seems to lack bitterness, but just had some hop bombs half an hour prior. Nice and sessionable beer.

Appearance: Clear gold, ok head.

Smell: Nice citrus and pine aroma.

Taste: Tingly bitterness, hit of caramel, finishes with more citrus bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Very light but tingly.

Tons of hops without being heavy, all right! This is a definite session bitter/pale ale that gives you plenty of flavor without a bunch of alcohol. In the same league as Bitter Brewer, Bitter American, and Gumballhead for hoppy, low-alcohol beers.

I first had this awesome Pale Ale from Brau Bros. on tap at Brau Fest.

It pours gold with a nice head- attractive beer. It looks like it will be smooth.

Smell- Explosion of hops. Tons of fruit on the nose with an emphasis on citrus. It smells smooth.

Taste follows the nose- pure hop bliss that packs a huge flavor punch without the huge alcohol punch. Not as much bitterness as expected with such vibrant hop aroma and taste. The head brewer knows how to brew smoothness.

Overall this beer is killer, mouthfeel is perfect for a hop-forward session Pale Ale. Brau Brothers hit a home run with this and it really should become a year-round offering. Plus it's smooth.

(For reference sake, I bought a 6 pack recently for $10.69 before tax)

No freshness dating.

A= Pours a nice amber color with a thick foamy two finger cap on it that holds nice retention and lacing.

S= Fresh piney hops. Really a big hop punch for such a low ABV. It smells like your typical IPA at around 6-7% ABV. Crisp and clean with little malt backbone on the nose.

T= Again a bright crisp clean hoppy flavor. Tons of nice hop resin and citrus piney flavor with a little bit of a wheaty sort of finish. Long finsh on the hop flavor. Really tasty for such a low abv. I could suck these down alll day.

M= Great carbonation and solid mouth. Never really feels watery.

O= This is an amazing beer. I have to say this is a gutsy move that I like a lot. Brewers seem to have been tossing the idea of a session beer around without enyone really makeing it happen (aside from Bitter Brewer). This actually does it and tastes great. I wish I remembered the price point on it. If this stays at a reasonably priced this could be a beer I buy a ton of.

Appearance is unknown, as I'm drinking it straight from the bottle, so that'll have to get a 3...

Smells lovely, nice mellow hops with a bright malt profile. Balanced for sure.

This certainly hits the spot - satisfies my hop fix but remains highly drinkable and refreshing.

Well done, Brau Bros. You're beers seem to get a bad wrap from certain BAs and I still don't know why. This is tasty.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Poured from 12 oz. bottle into a Sam Adams Perfect Pint glass.

Appearance: Pours a bright and lively copper amber orange with lots of rising bubbles. Big four finger white head with very good retention. Leaves a lot of lacing around the glass.

Smell: Huge aroma of hops like you would expect from a double IPA. Big presence of herbal grassy hops with a big whiff of ripe citrus. Hints of grapefruit, orange, mango, pineapple, and lemon zest. Also a good amount of piney hops. Some pale malts and hints of caramel in the background, but this is very hop forward. Smells like a big west coast IPA. Amazing for a small beer.

Taste: Just as hoppy and bitter as the smell leads. Big combination of ripe and bitter hops. Good notes of ripe grapefruit, orange, lemon, pineapple, and mango. Lots of grassy hop taste and some pine resin. Decent profile of bready pale malts backing things up with a bit of caramel and biscuit. Big flavor for a small session ale. It really delivers on the hops. Very nice taste.

Mouthfeel: Body feels on the lighter side of medium. Carbonation is moderate. Surprisingly light feel considering how much flavor is packed in. Bitter, crisp, and fairly juicy. Goes down fairly easy.

Overall: A pretty amazing beer. Feels so light but tastes so big. Brau Brothers really knocked it out of the park here.

T: Bitter bliss. It's over 100 in Minneapolis, so it is very lucky that this is available right now - hop forward, backward, left and right. A classy bitter that stays in the aftertaste.

M: Decent carbonation, thin and dry. Resiny coat.

O: This is the second 6-pack I'm having and while it is not as complex as Bitter Brewer, it is much more inviting in this weather. I'll finish the pack in just a few hours as before. Recommended for hopheads.

Served in tap at Monks in Sioux Falls. A session IPA? You have my attention!

Smells of pine and some citrus but it's a lot more bitter on the back of the tongue but that seems to follow other good APAs I've had and brewed.

Mouthfeel has some spikes that prick a bit to give it a good IPA feel. It really does feel like an IPA. Maybe not a well balanced one like Mercenary but it has the right characteristics. I am now wondering if I could session a highly hopped beer? Will my tastebuds eventually wear down so I can have a six-pack or more? Not sure. Hardly ever drink that much in one sitting these days it seems.

I really do like this as an everyday drinker but I
would probably just reach for an IPA first

Medium gold-orange, thin head fading to a skein with good lacing all the way around the glass.

Smell is delicious citrus with hints of tropical fruits.

Tastes crisp, wet, pleasantly bitter citrus, juicy, lightly mango-pineapple, very faint malt. Bitterness is not drying the palate out.

Mouthfeel is medium light with a well crafted body that hold together well to carry the favors across the tongue. Carbonation is nicely prickling. Finish is clean and lightly persistent bitterness.

Triple overall bonus points for such a tasty beer in a 4.2% ABV packaging.

The review below has not been replicated with subsequent purchases. Overcarbonated, overly grassy, off flavors. My hopes were raised, then they were thrown off the cliffs, into the rocks below.

To any of the Brau Brothers reading here: you have a great beer here, just make it consistently great. (and date the bottles)
---

Pours clear and light golden. Carbonation is as expected. Looks somewhat watery and thin, but given the ABV and concept here, that's expected

Hops on the nose, bitter citrus and sharp pine. Not overwhelming or pungent, just a fresh hop profile and little else. (Some salty resinous notes too, which are always welcome.) Smells like something out of San Diego.

Start drinking, and the bitter hop assault arrives. While fresh, there's enough complexity in the hop profile to complement the bitterness. (once this falls off, watch out).
The malts get beaten down and are hanging on for dear life. This is all about the hops, all about the bitterness. It works if that's your thing, and it's my thing.

Mouthfeel is pithy, bitter, dry and clean. Some resin shows up too.

Yikes, this is good. And I can drink a bunch and still function. Please make this year round, and please date the bottles. The price is too high, but it'll compete with other options in the regular rotation(two hearted, sumpin sumpin, furious) if I know it's fresh.

MN hopheads, rejoice.

A: Super clear gold-ish/yellow with a small off white head. Nice lacing.

S: Big grapefruit and slight pine along with some tropical fruits in the mix as well. Some sweet malts come through a bit, but that sweetness could be from the tropical fruits though. A huge and great smelling beer for being sub 5%.

T: So much flavor packed into 4.2%! Lots of citrus/grapefruit and a bit of pine hops all the way through. Not as much tropical fruits as in the nose, but still slightly there. Maybe just a hint of carmel malts, but the hops are the show here and there are a lot for being such a low alcohol beer.

M: A bit thin, average carbonation. Still a bit slick feeling.

O: Not a shocker that this has excellent drinkability even though its pretty hop forward. Probably the best beer Brau Bros have came out with. Hopefully this will be a year round offering at some point.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Clear, pale golden color with one finger of head that quickly settled to a thin cap. Just a little lacing is left down the glass. Not the liveliest looking beer.

What an aroma! A bountiful supply of hops fill the nose. A mixture of citrus, grassy, and floral. No sign of malt of any kind.

This is a bitter beer. Quite a bite. Along with the bitterness, the hops give some good flavor of citrus, pine, and grass. Some malt comes through with a grain mill, musty flavor but it soons get overwhelmed by the bitterness. Has a dry finish.

The body is not as spirited as I would of liked. Carbonation lies flat on the palate. Substantial body for a lower ABV beer.

A session beer for hopheads maybe. Do not think for a moment this is a balanced beer. It is more expensive per ounce than even Bitter Brewer so that is another knock against its session claims.

Serving glass: Poured from bottle into Nonic Imperial Pint.

Appearance: Clear gold with thin white cap. Just a touch of lacing.

Smell: Tropical and citrusy galore, with some pine and spiciness. Quite simply, this is the best nose I have experienced on a sub 5% beer.

Taste: Not quite as tropical as the aroma, but still there. Lots of grapefruit, pine and spiciness. The malts largely stay out of the way, which is needed to let the hops shine in such a low abv beer. Assertive bitterness.

Feel: Fairly light but firm body with just enough carbonation. Very dry finish.

Overall: This is an outstanding hoppy session beer, rivaled only by Surly Bitter Brewer. This is also Brau Brothers best beer and I really hope this is a huge hit for them. Overall, an extremely pleasant surprise.

12-ounce bottle poured into a pint glass.

A: Deep golden in color with a foamy off-white head that settles slowly. Not much head at first, but with a hard pour it starts to rise. Decent lacing with very mild carbonation.

S: A bit of biscuity malt on the nose, but floral, grassy hop notes dominate, with a hint of citrus.

T: Wow! This beer has got it going on. A touch of honey and fresh bread up front, with loads of hop character. Citrus, fresh-cut hay, and floral notes dominate, with some essence of pine and cedar.

Notes: Moderate in body with one of the cleanest mouthfeels I have experienced in some time. Hops are dominant, yet this beer has very nice balance overall. This beer is very tasty and exactly what I look for in a session brew. It's definitely going to find itself in my fridge often while it's available. I will admit, when this brewery first emerged on the scene, I was not the biggest fan of their beers. However, the last few years have really changed my mind. This is awesome stuff!
