Designed to be an easy-drinking sessionable beer, Watson’s Session IPA (formerly Mrs Watson's Small Ale) is mid-strength (3.5 percent ABV) but certainly doesn’t taste like it. Using pale ale and caramel pilsner malts it is almost heading towards IPA territory from a malt-build perspective. The malts are balanced out with a big hop profile and an in-your-face aroma of citrus and pine.
This American style ale is also dry-hopped so there is a bit of astringency to it. It pours a deep orange amber colour and delivers tangerine and caramel taste characteristics.
