All About Session IPAs
A session IPA is a beer style that combines the hop-forward flavor and aroma of an American-style IPA with a lower alcohol content, making it a more sessionable and easy-drinking beer.
The term "session" refers to the idea that the beer can be consumed in multiple servings or "sessions" without causing the drinker to become too intoxicated or overwhelmed by the beer's intense flavor. Session IPAs typically have an alcohol content of 4-5% ABV (alcohol by volume), which is lower than traditional IPAs that can have alcohol content ranging from 6-8% ABV.
Despite the lower alcohol content, session IPAs still maintain the bold hop character of an IPA, with a focus on American hop varieties that contribute fruity, citrusy, and piney flavors and aromas. The beer is typically light-bodied and easy-drinking, with a crisp and refreshing finish.
Session IPAs are a relatively new beer style that emerged in the craft beer scene in the 2010s as a response to the growing popularity of IPAs, and the desire for a more approachable and less intoxicating version of the style. They are a popular choice for outdoor activities, social events, and occasions where a flavorful and refreshing beer is desired without the high alcohol content of a traditional IPA.
