Brixton Brewery Low Voltage IPA (4.3%)

Low Voltage IPAThis, Brixton’s Session IPA, is pretty good, even though I’m getting really bored of Session IPA’s.
It pours a bright amber with just a ring of bubbles for a head, and smells of grapefruit and honey.
The malting is a soft and subtle caramel coated pancake, waffle and honey thing that starts well but ebbs away a little too quickly, and the hops give you hedgerow greenery, sherbet lemons and grapefruit zest that are sharp and zingy, but they too disappear a little too suddenly.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, Session IPAs work very well sat in a pub surrounded by friends when you are more interested in conversation than taking apart what you’re drinking, but they suffer when delivered in a half pint bottle to drink at home.
