Grapefruit Session IPA
It could not have been effortless for Elmsford, NY’s Captain Lawrence Brewing Co. to make this session IPA work. First, there are ALL of those hops! Tomahawk, Cascade, Mosaic, and Palisade provide the hop flavor with dry-hopped Cascade and Mosaic giving us the aroma. Now, where you’d expect to be overwhelmed with bitterness, the prominent taste is a refreshing grapefruit citrus (from grapefruit) on top of a light-bodied malt backbone. It could not have been effortless to make this brew work … but work it does! We love big, rich IPAs, so it takes a lot to impress us from the “Session IPA World,” and this brew makes it look easy.
