Brooklyn Scorcher IPA 4.5% ABV - Call This A Session?

The Scorcher IPA from Brooklyn Brewery is described as a session IPA that comes in with an ABV of 4.5%. Piney and grapefruity in the aroma and taste along with its solid body and mouthfeel, it is easy to forget that this one is a session IPA.

Brewer’s Notes:

Brooklyn Scorcher IPA is a surprisingly sessionable IPA. A floral, piney aroma strikes first, followed by a burst of mouthwatering bitterness as the hops begin their attack. Suddenly, a hint of toasty malt and a clean, lively finish burst in to leave you thirsty for more. It’s ludicrously tasty, and at a reasonable 4.5%, it’s a beer you can come back to again and again. Try it with spicy foods, salads, grilled meats, cheddar, feta or just another Scorcher IPA.
