Notes/Commercial Description:
India Session Ale... A brand new style from the twisted minds of 10 Barrel's brew crew. Deep gold with orange highlights. Big Citrusy aroma full of grapefruit and tangerine thanks to the massive dry hop! Clean, crisp maltiness with a hint of sweetness. Pleasant, balanced bitterness as a result of the loaded late-kettle hop addition.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Poured from 12oz bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance: light golden-orange hue with a bit of haze and a moderately strong effervescence. Head poured three fingers of frothy ivory foam and has pretty good retention. I quite like it.

Smell: earthy, floral, citrusy and fruity hops atop a relatively sweet malt base. Good, but there's something else in there, like an overripe or sickly sweet fruity character which isn't strong but is present enough to be a distraction.

Taste: fruity and citrusy with a fair amount of acidity in the works, although it's not necessarily tart. Finishes off with a good, balanced bitterness. The overripe character from the aroma is thankfully absent, although the overall impression is a bit homebrew-ey. Not terrible, though.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a good, rocky carbonation. Refreshing.

Overall: this is a decent and drinkable IPA, but I feel like the formula could use a little cleaning up.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.5

12oz bottle.

A: Copper ranging into orange. Good white head with nice retention. Even has some legs.

N: Heavy on the syrupy pineapple backed up by pine. Ample maltiness. Some good dry hopping. Not complex but pleasant.

T: Balanced with malt and bitterness, though it does tend towards the hoppy side. Again, not much complexity, but it’s clean and tasty.

M: Somewhat dry, slightly water, and moderately resinous.

O: An IPA for a game with friends. Won’t tax your taste buds, but it’s certainly enjoyable and goes down easy.
