Great Divide has also jumped on the "Session" IPA trend, and they're betting that Lasso IPA is the ticket. Coming from a 12 ounce bottle, on to the beer:

A half-inch of head doesn't retain much of itself and leaves a few bits of lace around the glass. Below is the brew itself, being a lighter copper color. The aroma is light in intesity for an IPA, session or not. There are slight notes of mango, tangerine...is that onion too? So far, I'm not wild about it.

The beer itself has an overall modest flavor. There's some pine, bitter grapefruit, onion, so overall of somewhat hoppy beer that isn't very intense, and ending with a bitter and raw aftertaste. It has a medium sized body with respectable carbonation.

Not a bad beer, though coming from the same brewery which has produced the likes of Titan IPA, Hercules DIPA, and Fresh Hop Pale Ale, I'd rather water down either of those beers than come back to Lasso.

3.29/5  rDev -4.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

12 oz. bottle poured into a Flying Dog goblet (5/22/14)

A: Blonde amber body that pours with a nice thick foamy head that is gone fast enough, with some nice lacing.

S: Light tropical breeze that fades into pines and malts.

T: The flavor overall is quite tame and low-key, with only a hint of bitterness in the back of the throat. I'd heard decent things about it, but this just run of the mill to me or even a bit below. It is decent for what it is, but some IPAs can stand up to a bit of age (almost 2 months) and still be quite pungent and delicious. You don't even get the good malt flavor here.

M: Smooth with no roughness.

O: This one probably needs to be super fresh to be good. Sadly, it didn't lasso me in. It is what it is, and that isn't much.
