Light and hoppy is the perfect way to describe Uncle Jesse. This West Coast Session Ale is perfect for the person looking for the hoptasticness of an IPA, but not all the alcohol. Dank and citrus notes from the hops outweigh the balance with the subtle honey malt flavor and aroma.

On tap at GHS.

Appearance: Hazy peach flesh colored body capped by a thin, clinging head.

Smell: Pretty dank and grassy with a nice pineapple-y tropical fruit character. Marijuana, dried oregano, a touch of pine. The malt backbone is largely hidden.

Taste & mouthfeel: Very dry, with a clean and balanced bitterness. Hops are at the forefront, bringing an enjoyable mix of marijuana and herbal notes along with pineapple and grapefruit. Slightly spicy and peppery toward the mid-palate, with a negligible malt profile. Nonetheless, this does have a decent body. A grassy, slightly vegetal note builds on the palate after half a pint; it tastes like dry hops were left on the beer slightly too long. While this would be a better beer with a cleaner, brighter hop profile, it's pretty impressive stuff nonetheless.

this is a great session ale that will appeal to hop heads... it does not disappoint.

the pour is really surprising and frothy -- nice 1.5" head of foam forms nice big bubbles and sticks to the side of the glass... impressive.

the aroma is really fresh and beckons with up front hop aroma.... mild grassy malt background and a good enticing waft of slightly spicey slightly citrusy hops.

the taste follows suit and is supremely sessionable. this a very well made, crafted beer... the malts provide a really rich drink and a little sweetness and the hops are up front and fresh tasting... the finish is superb, very dry and clean.

of all the new wave of session beers out there, this one goes right to the top.

EXCELLENT BEER!

Pours out straight gold with a solid inch of thick, white head. Very decent lacing gets left behind.

Citrus, pale malts... and citrus dominate the smell. Smells like a low ABV hop bomb to me, I'm in.

Pale malts, grapefruit and cumquat mingle up front. Fresh cut grass and slight hint of minerals finish it off. Goes down very smooth.

This is at the high end of a "session beer", but it has an abundance of hoppy goodness. For $5.50-$6 for a 22oz, I'll be adding this to my summer beer list.

Pours a clear amber color with a thin, white head that leaves little bits of lacing.

Smells of big pine hops with some tropical fruits.

Tastes of the big hops with a small malt backbone. Hops lead off with pine and floral notes backed by tropical fruits and citrus. Herbal bitterness comes through. Malts lean in and add a touch of toasted bread and some sweetness. Finishes up with some earthy hops leaving a lingering bitterness.

Mouthfeel is medium with a crisp amount of carbonation.

Overall, I really like this. It is hop heavy with low alcohol, and I wish it was sold in 6 packs.

This was a darker ale, very delicious and high in alcohol. I think it had a perfect overall flavor and would recommend it to those who like a full body beer. Glowing with rich color and delicate notes of sweet chocolate smoked coffee. It is a heavy beer for those looking for a fun bike ride.

I had this because the place I go to has a rotating tap. This is a new beer that they are showcasing. I was pleasantly surprised. This is a local beer and it has an outstanding aroma and almost a reddish appearance. I went back to the pub just for this beer and will do so again.

This pours a light, golden amber color with a brisk, bright hoppy aroma to it. The flavor is pleasingly bitter with some pine and resin mixed with a grapefruit-citrus note to it. Nice finish. Overall not a bad brew, and definitely one that’s easy to drink. I’d have it again.
