Session IPA, 4%
This limited lite IPA may have disappeared from the taps, but you can still find this spring beer from one of the Pacific Northwest's finest breweries on some shelves. And if you do, well, you're unlikely to find a more robust session IPA in the Pacific Northwest, a lawnmower beer with a nice hop blast that disappears as soon as you swallow it. If you see it, stock up.
Peach has a special place on the flavor spectrum, where it can be perfumy, sweet, acidic, and insanely refreshing all at once. Maybe that's why when you include it as an ingredient in a style of beer that goes down like lemonade, it comes off as memorably as Dodo. Like any good gose, it's well balanced between sour and salty, with clean fruit flavors instead of canned-syrup flavoring. For non-beer drinkers, it perfectly replaces a margarita or daiquiri in the beverage rotation, saving you from having to jam all of those ingredients into a cooler. For beer lovers, it's a sensational standout for a style you've probably become all too used to seeing these days.
