"Session IPA" or "Extra Hoppy Pale Ale?"
Kind of my thought. What's the difference between "Session IPA" and "Pale Ale"?
Exactly. A question of terminology. There are evidently 2 schools of thought :
1. Hoppy APA, which I love and brew. I feel that this recipe, with its good recommendations from everyone, falls into this category.
2. Literally, a session IPA, ie., low OG/abv IPA, scaled down but retaining IPA profiles. This is what I think of when I hear the name (see Founders All Day IPA). That's why I recommended the dry hops.
I love everything in the hop world, from SNPA to Palate Wrecker. But the session IPA term is a confusing one.
