Microbrasserie Vox Populi Session Fruit Punch IPA – Session IPA at 4.4% ABV | 30 IBU

Microbrasserie Vox Populi Session Fruit Punch IPA – Session IPA at 4.4% ABV | 30 IBU (C$4.75 at Collective, 355 ml, packaged on 11-Aug-2020, acquired 18-Nov-2020, reviewed 24-Nov-2020)

Appearance: hazy straw with two fat fingers of rocky off-white head, excellent retention and moderate soapy lacing. (4/5) Aroma: juicy pineapple, grapefruit, pale crackery malt, stone fruit, pine. (8/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate bitter, light tart. (8/10) Palate: medium-light body, moderate-lively carbonation, short duration lightly tart finish. (4/5)

My first from this Quebec brewer, and I’m fairly impressed. Lots of adjunct fruit flavour, of course, but it blends well with the underlying hop character, and is well supported by a clean malt base. The fruit is flavourful without being excessively sweet, and despite the light malt bill expected for such a low ABV, the body never comes across as excessively thin. Light, bright, and refreshing. Wait, there’s a DIPA version of this? I need it. (16/20)

8/10 #ryansbooze ryansbooze.com
