Sailors Grave Drowned Man IPA (355ml Can)
A hybrid style that takes the thirst quenching ’sessionability’ of a Pale Ale and adds the complexity and character of IPA hop aromas and flavours. It lacks the aggressive bittering of a standard IPA allowing for a more easy-going drinking experience. Drowned man is a rich honeyed gold with a clean, crisp malt profile. It is medium bodied with an almost creamy mouthfeel and a subtle, thirst quenching bitterness. Hefty dry hopping with Australian and US hops add citrus, melon and stonefruit juiciness with a little resinous pine along the ride. This is a beer equally at home in a sweltering Summer camp-ground as it is around the table paired with charcuterie and antipasti.
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 percent alcohol, a few have stretched the definition.
