Notes: Made for the days when you want to go a little bit farther. Long Stride Session IPA boasts bright hop flavors of tropical fruit and citrus, a delicate bitterness, and a mellow malt body that makes this hoppy ale delightfully crushable. Find it on draft and in the bottle variety pack!

12 oz. Bottle
BEST ENJOYED BY: 8/30/19

Pours a pretty nice clean/clear dark golden yellow color, pretty nice carbonation, with a pretty nice thick/creamy one-finger off-white head, which also leaves some nice sticky lacing behind. The nose is hoppy, malty, with a nice citrus complex (orange, tangerine, grapefruit, guava), very slight pine. The taste is hoppy, malty, with a nice citrus complex (orange, tangerine, grapefruit, guava), slightly piney. Medium body, ABV is hidden very nicely, with a little dry/bitter finish. Overall, a nice thirst quencher.

On draught at Old Chicago.

Pours a clear straw gold with an inch of foam and good lacing.

Lots of citrus in the smell. Lemon and grapefruit, little bit of bread.

Same for the taste. Unlike some of the style, this doesn't taste like hop water.
I wouldn't even call it watery.

12oz bottle gifted me as part of a mixed Odell sixer from my friends Abbie & Amanda, who passed through Colorado while I was house & critter sitting for them and apparently bought the bottled variety 12er. According to the label, this is apparently "best enjoyed " by October 25, 2019.

Poured into a shaker pint glass, this was a slightly hazy light gold, with a sudsy, bone-white head. Decent lace.

The hops give off aromas reminiscent of tropical and citrusy fruits and just a little bit of sweat (simcoe?). Malts are in the backseat and vaguely cracker-ish.

A little more complex in the flavor department, with a bitterness that is reminiscent of lemongrass that weirdly, kinda dies out a little at the finish.

Fairly light bodied, decent for a session IPA, except with a mouthfeel that cries out for a little more crispness.

Session IPAs are often maligned as being too much of a compromise, but this isn't bad. I think I'd be happy to drink several on a hot, active day, something the low abv percentage of this beer helps with considerably.

Poured from a 12oz bottle with a best by date of 8/7/19; into a pint glass.
Appearance- gold, slightly oily and some faint sediment; plenty of bubbles holding a medium thick, bubbly white head. Lacing is strong!
Smell - I pick up more mango and apricot in the nose.
Taste - mango, apricot and hints of herb and honey!
Feel - light but very flavorful, which is what you’re looking for in a session ipa!
Overall - this is a well made session ipa! The malt blend with stone fruit hop flavors makes this an easy drinking session ipa that doesn’t come off overly fake!

Gently hazy, pale straw colored body; thick and lively carbonation; thick and frothy white head. Very nice freshly mowed grass and mild berry smell. Excellent light malt and citrus flavor; subtle hop bitterness builds slowly from mid-sip and blossoms and lingers through the finish. Medium-light body; crisp but with a gentle juiciness for balance; semi-dry mouthfeel.

I haven't seen this beer before but certainly am glad to have found a sample bottle. This beer has some great character and taste yet also exudes a pleasing delicacy throughout the tasting experience.

Served on tap in a pint glass

Appearance – The beer is served a clear golden color with a one finger head of pure white foam. The head fades relatively quickly to leave a decent sum of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma of the brew is big of tropical fruit smells with some papaya, mango, and pineapple as well as a good hit of tangerine. Along with these aromas comes some light doughy smells and a good sum of grapefruit and a hint of herbal hop.

Taste – The taste begins with a light doughy and fruity taste with the fruit being mainly of a tangerine and tropical fruit taste of papaya and mango. As the taste advances the sweeter and doughy tastes loose a bit of ground all while a hint of grain comes to the tongue. Along with the grain, comes some big increases in the hop as well with flavors of grapefruit and herb coming to the tongue. Toward the end, the taste is moderately dry and with a hint of pine hop one is left with a crisp and modest hop taste to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the brew is on the lighter side with a carbonation that is higher. For the lighter sweet flavors, low abv. and moderate hop the feel is fantastic and makes this a great session style brew.

Overall – A very easy drinking and tasty session IPA. This would be perfect for sitting on the porch on a hot summer day, sipping away chatting with friends.

12 oz bottle, best by 8/30/19. Pours clear yellow gold with a medium creamy white head that quickly goes to a thin film that leaves some lacing.

The aroma is sweet cracker malt with some fruity and resiny hops.

The flavor is sweet malts with some fruity resiny hops. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with low prickly carbonation.

Overall, a nice session IPA.

BOTTLE:

Nice hop profile. Unlike many so-billed "Session IPAs," this does skirt the line between pale ale and IPA - which is rare. Hop profile is floral and fruity albeit vague/indistinct. Hints of hop oils. Pale malt. Lavender.

12 oz bottle poured into a pint glass. Light straw look, almost like a blond ale. Smells really good for a lighter beer. I’m picking up notes of peach and melon.

Taste is solid, it does not taste like a watered down ipa like many in this category do. The mouthfeel is thicker and a bit silky. I think this is what really makes it work. The finish dries a bit, which is nice.

I don’t seek out these beers often, but it’s a better example than most on the market.

12oz bottle, best enjoyed by 9/11/19. Thanks to Ken for giving me a bottle to try! Hazy pale yellow body with a persistent white head. Aroma is fruity citrus with pineapple and lemongrass. Flavors are more tropical with a big pineapple burst along with more lemongrass, and mild guava; maybe some wheat in there for malt. Light-to-medium body, ample carbonation, creamy & smooth, mildy bitter finish. Lots of refreshing pineapple flavors going on with this one. I like it.
