Great beer. Fully hoppy flavor with a low alcohol content so you can have a few.

Hopsession pours a clear straw like color with a big lacing head. There is a nice crisp fresh floral aroma. The taste is also crisp, with a fresh floral aroma. Nice flavors, and very very easy to drink; light yet full. Overall its very full and easy drinking.

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.
