Left Hand Introvert Session IPA

Left Hand Brewing Company, Longmont, CO

An ale with hop aromas of tropical papaya and kiwi with woodsy pine.  Balanced by honey malt and clean bitter finish.

4.8% ABV

Introvert Session IPA is clear amber with a hoppy and citrusy nose.  On the palate it is very light for an IPA: it is bitter from start to finish with a malty aftertaste.  However, the two elements do not mesh well.  This beer either needs to be maltier in order to balance with the hoppiness or less hops as not to overwhelm the malt.  Father Jack rants about how he understands that breweries want to make a low ABV IPA, but wonders why don’t they just make a less hoppy Pale Ale?  For something designed to be a session beer, i.e. one you could drink all day, it is far too disjointed to drink more than one.

Would we have this again?  Nope
