Collective Arts Brewing Hazy State DDH IPA – Session IPA at 4.1% ABV

Collective Arts Brewing Hazy State DDH IPA Session IPA at 4.1% ABV (C$4.23 at Collective, 473 ml, packaged on 24-Apr-2019, acquired 14-Jun-2019, reviewed 19-Jun-2019)

Appearance: hazy straw with one fat finger of loose white head diminishing gradually to a thin cap, spotty lacing. (3/5) Aroma: juicy tropical fruit & citrus, pale crackery malt, hint of pine. (8/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate bitter. (8/10) Palate: medium-light body, moderate-soft carbonation, short slightly tart finish. (4/5)

The label calls this a “DDH IPA”, and I guess the aroma and flavour profile are close to just that – but it’s definitely lacking the robustness of a typical A/IPA, so I’m calling it a Session. For a Session, it’s very well done, with character that belies the low ABV.  Definitely one you could enjoy drinking all day on the patio. (15/20)
