The wife saw this and picked it up since I have liked pretty much everything that has come out of the Muskoka Brewing Company.
One night, I was in the mood for some IPA action, so I grabbed this “session” IPA. I had no idea what session meant to I looked it up. Apparently, over the years, it has become custom with craft brewers to make their beers stronger and stronger. Session beers are lower alcohol craft beers that were created so you could drink more than one “per session”. Now you know.
I opened this one and was immediately hit with a strong hop smell. I got excited for what I thought were cascade hops. Whoever runs the twitter for Muskoka was quick to correct me:
I stand corrected. Either way, this was a fantastic beer. It had a bunch of stuff on the bottom so I took my time pouring it out. It was a golden yellow and, as I mentioned, smelled like fresh hops. It started off tasting like a creamy pale ale, or a cream ale, with a nice bitter booty. After half the glass, it became a little more bitter and finished dry.
This is the perfect beer for those who like hops and want to drink more than one. Can’t wait to grab some of these and enjoy them in the sun.
