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.

Poured into a Dogfish Head pint glass. Pours a medium golden amber with a huge three finger off-white head with good retention and massive lacing; active carbonation. Nice aroma of citrus hops, citrus juice, tropical fruit. Flavor is somewhat muted, but fresh and herbal citrus and piney hops, light grapefruit and mild biscuit malt. Medium bodied with a pleasant spicy carbonation. At first seems attenuated when compared to an IPA, but really hits the mark and surpasses it for the labelled India style session ale. Very fresh and tasty hops that are supported adequately by a mild malt body. I don't drink session ales often, but if I did, this would be on the short list.

Pours a very blonde color with a one-finger head into my glass. It's closer to the PALE in IPA than a few others I've had recently.

Citrus notes upfront, mainly mango with a touch of buttery bread. Not sure what to make of it aroma-wise.

Clean, crisp and chewy with very good use of hops. It's not BITTER and provides a good contrast between a hoppier IPA and mellower pale ale.

Lingering breadiness and citrus hops make for a great mouthfeel. Very clean. Enjoyable for the low ABV too!

I'd like to see this trend of sessionable IPAs continue. It's a welcome direction and beats the hell out of a bland pale ale!
