Kuhnhenn Brewing Company

This West Coast IPA was made to be a session IPA. It is very light gold in color with an intensely hopped nose. It has a high citrus hop flavor with a dry crisp aftertaste. If you like the DRIPA and want to last longer, try the Fluffer...

slightly hazy light golden pour with 2 fingers of white head which dissipated slowly. the smell is nothing short of a regular ipa.. lots of citrusy grapefruit and pine with a sweet honey-like scent following. the flavor is perfectly balanced.. lots of piney bitter hops up front with a bready malt backbone. one would think a beer may suffer in flavor from becoming a session ale, but not this one! mouthfeel is medium body (again surprised) with a moderate amount of carbonation.

this is a solid ipa and the fact that it falls into the session category is even more enticing. the brewer over at kuhnhenn is a fucking master. there is no doubt. i was in nyc about to pick up a friend whose flight got cancelled so i made a day of just hitting up a few spots. got the growler filled at good beer nyc which luckily for me still had this on tap from sunday. this is the 2nd time i see kuhnhenn on tap in ny and it makes me happy that i've been able to fill with 2 different beers of theirs. never a disappointment.

On tap at Kuhnhenn Brewery in Warren. Pours a pale straw color, almost similar to the color of Mott's apple juice, with a mild haze to it, still allowing large amounts of light through. Small head, most likely due to the tap pour, tiny bits of lacing along the glass.

This one had quite a large, fruity, citrus aroma to it; lots of peach and mango, also some mild grapefruit. Light hoppy and pine resins on the nose, too. Pretty much everything I love about American hops, collaborating nicely in the glass. Smells like a lighter version of Kuhnhenn's own DRIPA.

Taste comes through even harder on the hop-side of things; pines, pine trees, resins, light floral flavors. The mouth and flavor were just a touch watery, probably given the low ABV of the beer, but still - it packed a reasonable sized hop punch. The bitterness was there, albeit mild overall.

Citrus on the palate was a bit lighter than it was on the nose, which is to be expected. Aftertaste full of wet, grassy hops and some peaches and grapefruit rinds. Thin-medium bodied with a medium-high amount of carbonation. Goes down quite easily for having such an explosive flavor; extremely drinkable.

Very good IPA here, especially considering the fact you could drink this bad boy all day. It drinks much more like a regular Pale Ale, and I'm not even sure what the difference is that makes this an "IPA". Nice to know you can throw back a few of these without getting silly.

For a sessionable IPA, this is the best I have had to date. I actually didn't realize the abv was so low.

Good citrus American IPA. Very light orange body,a little lace ( though I found it watered down a bit). Cat p aroma in quantity, using lots of citra which imputes a bold taste. Lots of malt, Carmel, and some fruit. Bittersweet finish. Decent drinkability.

Transparent yellow with about a finger of head. Nice lacing. Quite deceiving as its almost pilsner looking. Smells piney and citrusy. Some pineapple and peach notes. Pretty complex hop profile for 4.75%. Taste has pine and citrus like the nose. West coast style hoppiness...Not much in the way of malt, but that's just fine here. Dry and finishes clean. Mouthfeel is light and airy. A great session and well made beer. Right up there with All Day IPA.
