Commercial Description


Kicking back and relaxing with a session beer requires little more than a couch, some free time, and a few pals. Slow Ride Session IPA is up for this easy-going challenge, starting with a pour of sheened gold and plenty of fluffy, white foam. A blend of seven hop varieties, led by exotic Mosaic and Nelson Sauvin, twist together brilliant tropical scents of melon, peach, lime and grapefruit for a vividly fruity aroma. The flavor mirrors the aroma, while balancing a malty-sweet yet clean start and hoppy bitterness in the back. Light bodied and extra quaffable,
Slow Ride Session IPA brings the finish line to you. Looking for Slow Ride in Texas? Our friends in the Lone Star State can find Slow Ride under the name New Belgium Session IPA beginning in early March. Don't worry: It's still the same green and yellow package and label with the same awesome couch bike and, most importantly, the same great beer.

    12 oz.bottle into a tulip best by 08/09/2015
    A: Very cold pour results in almost no head and a lingering collar of foam with little lace left. Very clear burnished gold
    S: Very fruity. Tropical with a hint of pine. Fairly light scent. Peachy.
    T: A little more pine in the taste with the fruit showing up a bit later at the back of the mouth. Not bad but not sure I’m quite impressed. A slight hit of toast is all but lost.
    M: Light body and average amount of carbonation. Refreshing and easy drinking.
    O: Another SIPA tried and this one was rather average over all. Widely available though and very well priced means it’s worth an occasional buy.
