Bitter American is a true rarity: an IPA session beer. IPAs are all the rage among beer snobs yet they are usually too high in alcohol content to be considered a session beer. Not so with the Bitter American: at 4.4% alcohol content you can have one or three and still have all your faculties intact.
I'm not always keen on aromatic hoppy beers, but I found Bitter American to have a nice balance of hop (42 IBUs) and malt taste. Light amber color, citrus hop aroma, moderately bitter. It's a refreshingly lower-alcohol American session ale that won't fill you up. Look for it in cans at you local beer specialty store! For some reason it's considered a late winter seasonal brew and is currently only available January through March. There's still time to find it this year although it might be worth petitioning 21st Amendment to make Bitter American year round.
