BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Otter Creek Brewing
Vermont, United States

Style: American Pale Ale (APA)

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.25%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Originally brewed by the Otter Creek brewers who were looking for an easy sipper after a long shift, Hop Session lies somewhere between a Pale Ale and IPA. A bouquet of hop varieties complement a rich blend of malts, making this brew highly drinkable with a distinct, West Coast hop flavor and aroma.

Poured a hazy brass hue with a one finger foamy white head. There was good retention and lacing.

The smell featured a light spicy hop atop a round pale malt.

The taste consisted of a vibrant spicy and leafy hop with a soft grainy pale malt.

The mouthfeel was toward the lighter side of the style.

Overall a very tasty hop forward session ale. I am happy to see more of these type beers in the marketplace.
