Golden Road's Wolf Pup Session IPA

BREWERY: Golden Road Brewing (Los Angeles, CA) | STYLE: American IPA | ABV: 4.5%

      When you're a student, you work part-time and keep up a blog as a side hobby the days suddenly feel shorter. If we could be like that creepy GUSTAV guy that never slept in that one James Bond flick we would! But we're very human and getting a full rest is crucial for us to remain productive. And sometimes even that isn't enough! So sometimes we do what the Spanish do and place a big emphasis on that midday break to keep from burning out. But what's a break without a little snack!? So, lately we've been digging Golden Road's WOLF PUP  SESSION IPA as our favorite afternoon treat... because for us, there is only one type of snack and that is beer ;)

       Choosing the right midday beer when you still have a lot left on your to-do list can be tricky. Pick that 90 MINUTE IPA and you'll be too drunk to function. Or pick that beer that has just a little too much alcohol and you'll be searching for your nearest pillow. So, this leaves us with the beers that are on the lower end of the ABV spectrum. And for any hop heads out there, that can create a serious problem as most IPA's lie in the 6-8% range. But that's what makes the Wolf Pup Session IPA so special. Since it's a session beer, it's an IPA with an ABV of only 4.5%  that, most importantly, doesn't taste like Coors Light.

    This beer isn't exactly what we'd call hop heavy but it still remains fairly hoppy with a low to medium bitterness. And with it's mineral earthiness, piney and citrusy flavors this beer is definitely what we'd call easy drinking and refreshing; perfect for mellowing out in the middle of a hectic day.

    Another great thing about this beer is that you can find it in just about any grocery store in the state of California. However, if you live outside of California or, for some reason, have trouble finding it then we'd recommend using BEERMENUS.COM to find it at a location near you!
