Great Lakes Truth, Justice and the American Way Session IPA

This 4.8% ABV session IPA  is from the Great Lakes Brewing Company of Cleveland, Ohio. It was part of their spring sampler pack. It uses Simcoe, Cascade, and Mosaic hops.

The beer pours a clear, light amber in color. There is about an inch of foamy, white head. The aroma is dank, earthy, muskiness over light fruit. The taste follows the aromas, dank and musky, with a tinge of citrus, leading into a piney bitterness. The finish is very dry, astringent, with strong bitterness. The beer drinks easy, but it is hard to believe it is 4.8% ABV with its big, big, flavors.
