White Birch Hop Session

Posted: July 4, 2015 in American IPA, Reviews, White Birch Brewing

Traffic coming home from work last night was ridiculous. I thought it wouldn’t be so bad because everyone would have already been where they were going. I was wrong. It took me about an hour and a half to get home. When I got home, I was pretty tired, so we just hung out on the couch and watched tv and went to sleep. I managed to sleep in until 9:30 AM, which hasn’t happened in months. Anyways, let’s get to the other beer that I tried last night.

white birch

ABV: 5%

Style: American IPA

Trivia: According to the brewery website, “Hop Session is in. Starting with a blend of west coast hops for a balanced, bitter effect. We close the session out by late hopping the beer for a nice resiny mouth feel.”

Random: The meow was not thrilled that I slept in because he wanted to be fed around 7 this morning.

This beer poured with a one finger, pure white head that dissipated slowly. It didn’t leave any lacing on the glass, but a very slight crown. The body was a hazy, orange color with moderate carbonation. The nose had grapefruit and citrusy hops, but smelled old. The taste was musty and dank with grass, grapefruit with some woodsy notes as well. The body was light, almost watery with light carbonation. It needed a bit more. It had a long, sticky finish with dank hops. I picked this up at Half Time for $2.09 a can ($.17 per ounce), which isn’t a bad price. Despite that, it was still a beer was only alright and not one that I would have again.
