Really quite sessionable—to a fault, perhaps, if this were truly meant to be a lunch-break six. Good pine and citrus interplay; mild but omnipresent bitters; fresh, clean-bite, medium-bodied malt; subtle creaminess within the chamber of the mouth. Herb-forward nose, good lingering taupe head-ring, aggressive—and refreshing, in the midday heat—effervescence. Solid.

O'so Lunchbreak IPA. On tap at the only place you can get it.
Cloudy amber color. Moderate head. Moderate lacing. Decent retention. Aroma is fresh citrus hops. Grapefruit orange. A little zest; a little floral. Flavor is similar, but a yeasty, bready maltiness distracts from the hops. Finishes watery. Light medium body. Mild bitterness. Very drinkable, certainly on the lighter side of the IPA spectrum, but in the end, not overly exciting.

There was a poster up advertising this, i've never seen or heard of it before today. The slogan was something like "brewed for those of us who still have to go back to work" implying a lower alcohol beer you could have with lunch. It was released at an AMC car show held at Uncle Mikes on July 21st.

More info on facebook:
"A sessionable IPA brewed with Ahtanum, Millenium, and Columbus hops, made by Kenosha native and O'so owner Marc Butera. Exclusively available in Kenosha at Uncle Mike's and Capt. Mike's."

On tap at Uncle Mike's, served in a flute glass.
Review from quick written notes.

Body was a hazy golden orange, lasting lace and skim, concentric rings dripping down the sides. Floral hop aroma, light wheat and grainy pale malt. Flavors of vegetal hop greenery and citrus rind, a mild bitterness, light bodied and sessionable, dry aftertaste, quenching overall.

Not as pungent or hoppy as the Hop Whoopin' I had after it, but a lighter, mild IPA to pair up with lunch.
