Been enjoying some All Day this evening and it's tops
BENT PADDLE - LollyGAGGER
I think I've pretty much tried all the session ipas available in MA. The ones I like best are probably All Day and Pinner, but they're all pretty watery and with my need for taste I find I don't really want to session them. That being said I've recently rediscovered Berkshire Brewing Lost Sailor IPA. Not technically a session ipa, but at 5.5% it's pretty close. Really well made beer with a great flavor profile with no watery finish. Being available in 12 pack cans doesn't hurt either. Haven't read the whole thread, so if someone has already mentioned this beer. Sorry
Been drinking sunshine daydream all weekend and really like it. Holds up against some higher abv/bigger ipas out there.
smells like vomit but goes down easy!
Meta modern baby. Yous guys are missing out
Still not a fan of the "session IPA" tagline. Just make a good pale ale or esb. My favs include well made Pale Ales like Sierra Nevada PA & Firestone 31. Notable good beers in the session category are Oskar Blues Pinner (thankfully called a Throwback IPA) and Stone Go To.
I have two favorites:
- Wet Hop MES from Acoustic is the champ at 3.8% - M.E.S. stands for the hops: Mosaic, Equinox, and Simcoe
- Down To Earth Session IPA - 21st Amendment for its fruity and less bitter light character
I think my favorite 2 that I've tried, although I don't often reach for this style, are Carton Boat Beer and Oskar Blues Pinner. If I didn't know they were "session", I wouldn't have been able to tell the difference against a stronger IPA.
Session IPAs are generally bad, and I think the only reason they're made is to appease crossover consumers. They have no balance and taste like aspirin a lot of the time. That being said, Daytime is pretty decent along with go to, bikini beer and all day. Pinner was pretty bad, Hop Job from foothills was bland (and also makes me say hand job in my head everytime I read it.)
This style is for goobers and kindergarteners. Drink a pale ale and be done with it.
Founders all day IPA is pretty damn good fresh.
I don't think you can beat 'All Day IPA' for the price point. Has become by go-to beer for yardwork, poolside, etc.
They don't market it as a session IPA but Ozark Beer Co. Ozark IPA at 5.5% abv is quite drinkable.
I'm not a huge session IPA guy, but just had the Orpheus Peace.War.Truth.Lie last night and it was awesome. That is definitely a beer you can enjoy the whole day and not hit the wall too soon. Gonna have to get some more today.
Chinookie from Full Pint or IPA from Lagunitas.
These session ipas to me are hoppy and full of flavor and taste just like regular ipas to me. I dont have an issue with them.
Interesting article on Sesionable IPA's. Is Stones Go to IPA the best? http://www.chicagotribune.com/dinin...nking-session-ipas-20150723-story.html#page=1
Lawson's super session 2
Maine Beer II.
Easy Jack all day #fromthecan
Metamodern. I have pimped this beer in a ton of threads.
Firestone easy jack
Foley Bros. Session is fantastic. These guys don't make a beer that isn't excellent!
If I'm going to drink more than a few I would prefer Heady and I just respect the 8% and don't drive after 2. The low abv stuff all pretty well sucks, some worse than others.
Call me crazy, but Two Roads Lil' Heaven! I love that stuff.
So your answer to the forum question is that they all suck and that everyone who actually answered the question is wrong for having a favorite? Never understand these responses. If the thread was about whether or not you like session IPAs, then it makes sense, but this thread is obviously for those who DO like them in the first place.
A session IPA isnt a real thing
You're right of course. My favorite Session Ipa - I don't have one because they all suck.
Lawson's Super Session #2
I guess I just don't get the point of answering a "favorite" question with those answers. Like the title of a thread is favorite stout. Would you click on it just to then type " none, they all suck?" What's the point? Not trying to be a prick, I just don't get it.
Like many others I typically don't love the style. BUT I do enjoy the flavors of Firestone Easy Jack.
Pinner for easy availability but Meta Modern is one delicious brew.
Not a huge fan of the style, but if you're intent on it, Beavertown's Neck Oil, Speakeasy's Baby Daddy, and Carton's Boat Beer are all pretty decent.
Haven't really messed around in the session IPA world much, but I really enjoyed Boulevard Pop-Up Session IPA.
This: It might not be labeled as a "session" but it sure drinks like one.
My favorites are:
Otter Creek Over Easy
Captain Lawrence Effortless IPA
Two Roads Lil' Heaven
Big shout out to my new favorite "sessionable" IPA, Terrapin Hi-5 California Style IPA (5.8%). It pains me that I won't have access to this (picked it up when passing through Jersey yesterday). Brilliant beer. Everything I want in an IPA
Arcadia brewing, Cheap Date.
Other Half Small Green Everything. Hope it comes out in cans soon!
sunshine day dream from fat heads has more hop flavor than some full strength ipas out there. for value all day is unbeatable.
