3.99/5  rDev +3.9%

Sample poured and consumed at the brewery.

Tried this side by side with a sample of the Infidel to see what the differences were. The young woman behind the bar informed me that they were the same alcohol strength, but I knew that was incorrect, as they'd had signs posted during their anniversary party the week before and they were definitely different. A look 'round the web let me to the above-listed abv percentage and to this description of the beer from the brewers:

"Big beers in hot weather turns us into zombies, maybe it does that to you too. So we figured we’d try something a little more approachable for summer. Afterlife is our solution. It’s got a great hop character and is as close to being a session IPA as we were willing to go. Cheers, grrr argh, brains… "

Despite it's avowed "session IPA" status, I think Selkirk Abbey couldn't help themselves from using a Belgian yeast strain, as I got spicy notes similar to their Infidel. However, the hop character was decidedly different, more grassy and crisp. I'd like to know what hops they used.

At a lower alcohol strength and a more restrained hop character, this would seem better suited for session drinking during the summer than Infidel. Not sure if they plan to bottle this one but if they did, I'd imagine it would be popular.

22oz into a tulip. Pours a clear amber w/ a soft off-white head.

Aroma is bready and floral, some fruity esters from the Belgian yeast.

Taste is clean and crisp, floral, juicy. Nice bitter hoppy finish.

Mouthfeel is soft and light, drinkable.

Overall a nicely built, straightforward Belgian IPA.
