Lasso India Pale Ale
Another beer with "sessionable simplicity" for today... Yep, Lasso India Pale Ale brewed by Great Divide Brewing Company. There's a little story that is all "Wild West" on the side of the label, and you can also see what food they suggest you pair with the beer. "Lively. Daring." Bottled 03 2014. 5.0% alcohol.
Fruity, faint citrus aroma, pretty hard to smell much of anything. Lots of cracker flavor followed by a sour bitterness. Kind of strange herbal and paper taste throughout. Lemony citrus and some faint orange sweetness round out the profile. Dry, astringent finish that I didn't love at all. So-so all around. Pick another beer.
