Seems everyone is brewing a “session IPA” these days and some are far better than others. The style as a whole suffers from a watered down mouth feel and a lack of complexity. There are a few session ales that I enjoyed but for the most part they miss the mark.
Spring Fever from Lawson’s ends up some where in the middle. With a very low 3.8% ABV I was expecting a watery mouthfeel which I got but was not expecting such a great hop aroma. This been pours a super clear light orange with a very slight white head. Aroma was very nice with plenty of tropical fruit and a bit of grass.
Taste was OK with a decent hop profile but the beer felt like an IPA split with water. Enjoyable but I would rather drink a bottle of Double Sunshine than drink multiple bottles of Spring Session.
