Best Reduction in Alcohol

City Paper

In the thirst-inducing dog days of summer, hopheads have traditionally had a difficult choice: Pick a bland, watery beer or suffer the consequences of drinking high-alcohol IPAs like water. Thanks to Flying Dog’s Easy IPA, now you don’t have to sacrifice bounteous hops for a sessionable beer. At 4.7 percent alcohol, you can down quite a few of these without paying for it the next day with a wicked headache. But this isn’t some wishy-washy pale ale. Full bodied, with a floral taste on the front end, and plenty of crisp citrus notes, the beer ends nicely with a satisfying, piney finish. It’s a delicious beer for any occasion that won’t leave you sloppy.
