Pew pew pew.  Another beverage I took with me on my vacation over the Holiday weekend.

Beer Name: Laser Kitten

Brewery: Medusa Brewing Company (Hudson, MA)

Style: Session IPA

ABV: 4.5%

Description: Announced as an American-style session IPA brewed with Citra and Mosaic hops to give it a “citrusy, fruity punch.” And then there’s this promo:

Appearance: Poured a cloudy straw colored body that sat below a fluffy white head.

Smell: A slightly sweet blend of grapefruit, lemon rind, and piney hops.

Taste: It started out out with moderate notes of grapefruit and citrus rind, followed by light bitterness.  The finish brought out a crackery light malt base and brought the beer to clean, crisp finish accentuated by piney hops.

Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodies with a carbonation level just a touch below moderate.

Hype: I don’t really know any hype surrounding this particular beer, but its big brother, Laser Cat, always seems to generate a good deal of excitement.

Overall: Light and refreshing with a nice clean hoppy finish, this was everything a session IPA should be.  Very nice beer indeed.
