Sea Change Brewing Co. Session Ale – Session IPA at 4% ABV (C$4.14 at Collective, 473 ml, packaged on 19-Jun-2019, acquired 22-Sep-2019, reviewed 13-Nov-2019)

Appearance: slightly hazy pale gold with one finger of loose white head diminishing gradually to a thin cap and ring, minimal soapy lacing. (3/5) Aroma: citrus, grainy malt, tropical fruit, light pine. (7/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate bitter. (7/10) Palate: medium-light body, moderate-lively carbonation, off-dry medium bitter finish. (4/5)

I shouldn’t have left this in the fridge as long as I did – it’s probably getting a bit elderly, but still not bad. Refreshing and decently clean, and certainly doesn’t feel watered-down the way some Sessions do. Given the age, it might be a little unfair to complain about the lack of brightness and slightly muted hop profile, but there you go. I wouldn’t say no to another, and that’s really the ultimate test, innit? (14/20)
