BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Otter Creek Brewing
Vermont, United States
ottercreekbrewing.com

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.

Better than most of the low abv session ipa's out there; i would buy this again if I were to decide to drink all day (camping, etc). What I like about it is that it has a decent balance in terms of malt backbone but still maintains the low abv. Good work here by Otter Creek
