Sesion IPA!!!! I hate that. Tourettes out the way. Piney hops with that aenesthetising medicinal quality and a smidge of burned toast in the background. Very little malt at all. it's all lead guitar and no rythm. Refreshing rather than restorative. Not bad for a cheap weeknight tipple.

Cloudy orange with a medium-small head that dwindles fairly quickly. Citrus smell with some sweetness; clementines and peach as well as tropical fruits. Good amount of aroma for the relatively low alcohol. Flavour quite different at first with plenty of hops and a touch of toasty bitterness ending with quite a clean, dry, crisp finish. The tarter, grapefruit flavours come through more later on.

330ml can poured into tulip glass.

This is a pleasant surprise. Packs a really good amount of aroma and flavour for a low ABV IPA. As you might expect, the mouthfeel is a little watery but overall this is easily the best UK brewed US style session IPA that I've had. Will certainly be picking up some more of this. Cheers!

Pours a hazy, amber with some carbonation and a two finger, lumpy, fluffy head that leaves thick lacing.

Smells of zingy, American, citrus and floral hops. Quite intense. Very inviting.

Tastes hoppy as well. Juicy, tropical flavours with a dry finish. Not bad.

Feel is light/medium body with a little metallic flatness. Mouthfeel is disappointingly thin.

Personally, I would choose either a regular AIPA or, if I want a lower ABV, then a regular APA. Not half bad but the taste and in particular the feel can't and don't live up to the nose.

330ml Can from Marks & Spencer, Enniskillen (£1.90):
A terrible offering from Fourpure, where did it all go so wrong? There was no balance to this one, the pine and citrus hops were far too strong, & they managed to smother all but a tiny bit of sweetness right at the end; a really poor beer and not one I'll be going back to again.
