When the summer San Francisco fog lifts every afternoon, the sunshine showers upon us and we dream of what Hawaii must be like 24/7/365. People dance and sign. This sessionable hazy IPA has plenty of Tropical notes thanks to generous dry hoping featuring Mosaic and Simcoe hops.
Hop aroma and ﬂavor are medium to high and can display qualities from a wide variety of hops from all over the world. Overall hop character is assertive. The term Session IPA describes a category of beers marketed for their hop-dominant flavor profiles at 'sessionable' levels of alcohol. While this is typically 3.2-4.6% ABV, a few have stretched the definition. This class of beers arose c. 2010 out of the Craft Beer Tradition as a reaction to the trend of increasingly strong beers and greater public appreciation for hoppier profiles around the globe. It is differentiated from American Pale Ale by typically being lower in alcohol and usually having more hop-dominant profiles. While hops used are typically American Pacific Northwest and New Zealand, proprietary/experimental and South African and other hops may also factor into a Session IPA hop bill.
