East Van SMaSH Fresh Hop Session IPA

<p>Bomber Brewing has brewed a session IPA with fresh from the vine Simcoe Hops. As a session IPA this beer is light and easy drinking but has the addition of fresh hops to add a light, grassy and piney hop flavour to the beer. From the 650ml bottle the East Van Smash pours into the glass as a golden-amber colour that is topped with one finger of fairly quick to settle, lightly lacing head. As the head disperses an aroma of light malt, grass, citrus and pine with a hint of tropical fruit hits the nose in a fresh and fairly light way. The beer is clearly fresh hopped and packs a bit of a punch but the sessionability factor plays an even keel and makes this a beer that is both light and at the same time hoppy. Tasting the East Van Smash it has a fairly light body to it and right off the bat a malty tone hits the palate in conjunction with a citrus, grassy and fruity flavour. The starting notes build into a piney mid section and a fairly bitter but somehow neutral finish. The East Van Smash is sessionable, flavourful and a nice balance of malt, hop and an easy drinking afternoon beer.</p>
