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.

Grabbed a bomber to try.. pretty sure this is a year around beer..

- Light and rather clear yellow beer, slight dust floaties throughout the beer. Minimal white creamy head.. leaves behing a small ring and a dusting on top.

- Light grainy and oat-like scent.. fruity hops, bit of citrus.. grassy and earthy backdrop.

- Light grainy flavor. Zesty bitter hop, grassy.. very bready finish to it. Overall not too bad, but it does have a slight funky flavor to it. Grain husks, earthy must.

- Well carbonated, dries the mouth a bit. Nice smooth body, probably this beers highlight is the mouthfeel.

- Overall it has some great flavors, and won't get you hammered if you drink a bomber. But this beer is too close to a homebrew to really stand out.

Clear golden colour with a small, white head. Fair head retention. Some lacing.

Bitter, grassy hop aroma with slightly nutty malt notes.

Mild malt flavour with a big, grassy, dryhopped flavour. Bitter and yet somewhat dull.

Medium body with moderately-low carbonation. Good.

A nice, bitter session ale that while not entirely exciting, does the trick.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.

Look - dark tan/golden color, slightly murky, with about two fingers' worth of light khaki-colored foam that disspipates slowly.

Smell - understandably hoppy-smelling. The aroma seems to contain Cascade hops mixed with something else. The Cascades might even be dry hops.

Taste - normal bitterness of an IPA, but it does have a mellow feel that helps the bitter initial bite flow into a softer thirst-quenching middle. There is a slightly bitter aftertaste, but not overwhelming.

Mouthfeel - pretty well-balanced, not too creamy, not too light.

Overall - not a bad brew at all, but doesn't seem intensely intriguing. Still, not bad for just being something good to drink.

Had this on tap at the Ace Hotel in Portland and I thought this was a good lightweight IPA made for the summer. The hops were there alright but the mouthfeel was light and the finish was smooth and easy. Still PNW in profile this is a good drinking beer that kind of tastes like Twilight ale from Dechutes
