Drink of the Week: Harpoon Take 5 Session IPA

harpoon take 5 session ipaSummer beer season is off to a good start with this week’s American Craft Beer Week leading into Memorial Day weekend. And to celebrate, we’re popping the top on the newest release from Boston’s Harpoon Brewery—the Take 5 Session IPA. First brewed on its pilot system last year, this easy drinker combines a fresh hop aroma (from Simcoe and Amarillo hops) with a sturdy malt-driven backbone, all packaged up in a quaffable 4.3% ABV—expect sunshine-ready flavors of tropical fruits, sweet citrus and a whisper of pine. Making its way to taps now, watch for bottles and cans to be released later next month. And for more on American Craft Beer Week, click here.
