A guy named Lew digs session beer,
So that you can drink it for hours with a bit less fear!
When it comes to IPA, this Booze Dancer likes them bold,
With a firm hop bite that won’t leave you cold.
Founders and Stone have gone the Session IPA route.
I have tried their attempts thinking they might be a hoot!
They’re solid brewers with a gold standard line up,
So if they bring something new to the table, you know that I’ll show up!
All Day IPA was thirst quenching and quite a delight,
But Stone’s Go To lacked their signature arrogant bite.
In comes Great Divide with this Lasso IPA.
A session worthy beer is what they did say.
At 5% ABV, you might have quite a few,
And you might even gain the respect of the aforementioned Lew.
While I love how this beer looks with its clear pale orange color,
The aromas are subdued and make me yearn for some other (beer that is).
There’s a wee bit of pine, and a smattering of citrus,
But for whatever reason, I’m not excited to drink this.
Perhaps it’s my mood which is all kinds of fickle,
Or perhaps it’s just my taste buds that aren’t yet tickled.
When I take that first sip, I am somewhat relieved.
This beer isn’t bad, I am no longer peeved!
There’s a smattering of sweet malt and a subtle hop bite,
I’m enjoying this Lasso, it’s quite a delight!
Now this beer isn’t earth shattering, and it won’t blow your mind,
But I still think you should try it, it might just be your kind!
