Full Sail Session Twist brings a little citrus into winter

Full Sail Session Twist

Full Sail Session Twist brings a touch of citrus into the colder months.

Hood River, Oregon’s Full Sail Brewing has taken the inspiration that created Session Lager and turned it into a full series of releases over the past few years. Creations have included everything from an IPA to a Mexican Lager, plus fruit variants like Watermelon Wheat and Black Cherry. As winter presses on, the brewery looks to put a little citrus in these dark days, with Full Sail Session Twist.

Session Twist is lightly hopped with Cascade, plus a “twist” of tangerine. Each sip might be the brightest part of drinking in the cold.

“We wanted the tangerine to come through in this lightly hopped pale ale. A hint of Cascade hops gives Session Tangerine Twist a natural citrus character and a twist of lemon rounds it out. Tangy aromas of citrus zest and tangerine burst from this golden, refreshing ale. –  Full Sail Brewmaster Greg Doss

Session Lager launched 12 years ago and has since taken home more than 100 medals in various competitions. 40 of those were gold.

Full Sail Session Twist is available in 11-ounce stubby bottles and draft through April 2018.

Style: Pale Ale (w/ Tangerine)
Availability: 11oz Bottles, Draft. Jan-April.
Debut: Late January 2018

5.2% ABV, 20 IBUs
