Brewsters joins the session IPA/ISA parade with this summer seasonal, enjoyed at Calgary Crowfoot location. An unusually bright mustard yellow brew with a little white stippling on top, none of the orange or ruddy overtones you usually get even with even the lightest IPAs. Aroma is on the dank and rank side for the ISA style, a tad coarse and piney. Tastes like cracker malts underneath some lemon-lime, moderately intense pine, and perhaps green tea. Thin and fizzy with some citric spicy tang and a clean bitter finish. Reminds me of Red Racer ISA albeit much more unidimensional, the popping fruity flavors and deep tea-like tannins are largely absent here, replaced by something in the same ballpark but even more light and mellow.

American shaker pint at the Century Park location.

This beer appears a crystal clear, pale golden yellow colour, with one finger of thinly frothy, and somewhat bubbly dirty white head, which leaves a bit of stringy islet lace around the glass as it quickly blows off.

It smells of sharply fruity orange and white grapefruit pith, gritty, grainy pale malt, a touch of saltine cracker, yeast, a mild white wine essence, and further leafy, earthy hops. The taste is even more bitter, ethereal citrus fruit, now even more so than in the aroma, edgy wet pine needles, grainy, crackery pale malt, musty leaves, and a strong earthy dryness.

The carbonation is quite tight in its buzz-saw rendering, the body medium-light in weight, and not really all that smooth, not in the face of the persistent hop bitterness. It finishes pretty dry, hoppy in the same vein as ever was, and faintly grainy from the well-faltering malt.

A generally tasty session ale, in the booze and malt reduced IPA sense, as seems to be the trend around here of late. All of which means that, if you're a hop-head, and care little for other componants that comprise a well-balanced beer, this will work for you. Me, I'm only partly impressed by this current trendy style - something (usually more than one thing) usually seems to be missing, as is the case here.
