Green Flash Brewing Co. Hop Odyssey: Segal Ranch Session IPA Session IPA at 4.5% ABV (US$2.52 at Specs Main Branch, 355 ml, best before 28-Mar-2016, reviewed 25-Jan-2016)

Appearance: lightly hazy medium gold with one finger of creamy ivory head, good retention and lacing. (4/5) Aroma: pine, citrus, floral, pale malt, light tropical fruit. (7/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate-high bitter. (7/10) Palate: medium body tending a little to the watery, moderate carbonation, off-dry lingering bitter finish. (3/5)

Big flavour for a low ABV ale! Not sure how sessionable this is, given the moderately high bitter, mind you… It’s not a complete success – the high-ish bitterness doesn’t work overly well with the slightly watery body, for example – but it’s not bad. (14/20)
