Looking for an IPA that won't blow you out of the water with a high alcohol content? The Yeastie Boys Big Mouth Session IPA might just be for you.
The Good: Big Mouth comes in a sweet looking Yeastie Boys can, and is quite pleasant on first sip. In a weird way, the aroma reminds me of the stronger scent you get while you're dry hopping your home brew, I assume it's just dry hopped within an inch of its life to achieve this effect. Pretty refreshing beer, could certainly have a few of these in the sun.
The Bad: Probably sounds weird, but it's kinda all hops. Even in a heavy IPA you still get some residual malt flavour. This is literally all hop aroma and bitterness. While quite drinkable, just missing that backbone.
Enjoyment: I like it enough to go again, but I guess there's just other beers I'd go to first. Maybe the bitterness is to sharp at the lower ABV, not sure, but it just doesn't quite grab me the way some other lower ABV (yet hoppy) beers do.
