Description 

Our little cousin to Sip of Sunshine IPA has a juicy, fruit-forward character layered with tropical hop flavors and bright floral aromas. Notes of grapefruit and pineapple complement this delectably balanced beer.

Little Sip by Lawson's Finest Liquids is an American IPA and is being evaluated as an American IPA (category 21A from the 2015 BJCP Beer Style Guidelines). American IPAs are hop-forward beers typically expressing American or new world hop characters and are most typically citrusy, piney or resiny in character. 

Little Sip pours dark golden in color with a slight haze and a big fluffy off-white head. The aroma is moderately hoppy with notes of mangos, generic citrus and resin with a hint of malt beneath the malt. The flavor is similarly hoppy with flavors of mangos, resin and tangerines. The beer finishes moderately bitter with flavors of tropical fruit, resin and herbs.

Little Sip is a good American IPA with tropical fruit and resiny hop notes. The hop flavor is prominent with a slightly restrained bitterness. Hopheads seek this one out.
