    So you think Session IPAs are useless?

    I was making breakfast for the family this morning and after finishing cooking the bacon I realized I had nowhere to dump the grease. A quick search found a session IPa in the back of the fridge. In a few seconds it was empty and the grease was semi-successfully dumped in the can. And the beer was so weak (abv%) that I wasnt compelled to crawl back in bed. Has anyone else found any use for this style of beer?

    Well, aren't you a clever fellow!

    I probably would have poured out the beer and drunk the grease.

    As a homebrewer, I've been focusing a lot more on beers in the 5-6% range. Making a flavorful beer that is drinkable is great. If I could make one at 3%, that'd be even better, but pale ales aren't really a style conducive to that unless you want it to taste like hop water. Maltier styles can be really good at 4% though.

    You can't drink all day if you don't start early.

    Heys Guys, not to sound like an add, but I have been on a quest to find a tasty low ABV IPA. Why? So I can have more than a few & feel OK. I have tried over half a dozen in the sub 5.5%ABV most are ďmehĒ. However, even before knowing the ABV of Stone Neverending IPA (4%), I thought it was a fantastic tasting, lots of flavor IPA! Your mileage may vary, but I know this is my new summer grass cutting beer! Cheers!

    I really like Yellowhammer's Beach Body Session IPA. Perfect yard work/car work/ grilling beer.

    For an IPA 6% is as low as ill go but i know other folks like um so hey. When it comes to sub or hovering 5% stuff i tend to stick to beers like modelo negra,
    Bitburger, lager or good ol PBR on ice.

    Huh. Maybe you should try a good one, like the Lawson's Super Session series.

    Big Fan of Session IPAs. Good flavor, less hop headaches and very thirst quenching after a ride. My two favorites lately are Devil's Harvest Breakfast IPA from Southern Prohibition (Hattiesburg, MS) and Tectonic Session IPA from Hutton and Smith (Chattanooga, TN). Deliciousness in a can.

    Lawson's Super Session series are fantastic too - definitely check them out.

    I love IPAs but wont drink session beers. I don't drink while riding or snowboarding and since I'm always solo, I have to drive. I just wait until I get home. If I'm camping and drinking, Im drinking the real deal.

    Totally agree on the tectonic session ipa, it may be one of the best tasting "session" beers of any style that I've had.

    I'm a Chattanooga native, however. I'm curious as to how available they are elsewhere. Cool to see H&S mentioned here, they're a great bunch of people who are also big mountain bikers. Only downside is they are cat people.
