Big Sky Pygmy Owl Itty Bitty IPA

This 4.2% ABV session IPA is from the Big Sky Brewing Company of Missoula, Montana. 

The beer pours clear and a dark golden in color. There is a short and relatively thin head of white foam. The aroma is light tropical fruit, pineapple, mango, passion fruit, and a bit of tangerine. The taste follows the aromas, a bit of earthy mango skin kicking in, over enough stone ground crackery malt to base the hops on. It drinks very light and easy. The finish is moderately bitter, mostly crisp and refreshing. This is one very quaffable session IPA.  

Session IPA’s are hot right now, everybody is coming out with one.  I have yet to taste one that is better than Founder’s All Day IPA, but this one is good, and I give it props for best named.
