Description 

Low calorie, low carb, Hazy Session IPA brewed with Citra, El Dorado, and Sabro hops. One of the most beautifully and uniformly hazy IPAs we have made, features notes of papaya, over-ripe mango, and peach skins from the huge whirlpool and dry hop additions, plus a surprisingly smooth and creamy mouthfeel for a beer that finishes so dry and crisp.

Fit Bits by WeldWerks Brewing Co. is a Session IPA and is being evaluated as a Specialty IPA (category 21B in the 2015 BJCP Beer Style Guidelines). Session IPAs are lower-gravity (and hence lower alcohol content and lower calories) versions of IPAs that retain the same hop-forward aroma and flavor profile. Fit Bits was hopped with Citra, El Dorado and Sabro hops and measures in at 4.2% ABV and 130 calories.

Fit Bits pours golden in color with a strong haze and a huge mousse-like, off-white head. The aroma is moderate citrusy, mango and piney hops over a hint of malt. The flavor is moderate tropical fruit and piney hops with a hint of malt in the background. The beer finishes moderately bitter with lingering piney and citrusy hop flavors and a hint of coconut.

This Session IPA is well done and avoids the pitfall of many Session IPAs: overly dry body with a harsh bitter flavor. The selected hops provide a good balance of a lot of different hops flavors, especially of the tropical fruit variety. The beer is certainly easy to drink and will be enjoyed by hopheads looking for an IPA flavor without all the alcohol and calories.
