That basically describes mine. More flavor/aroma,but 5.86%. I always thought you don't need big ABV & heavy beer to get good flavor & such.

Blatant Session IPA is one of the hoppiest beers under 5% I have ever tried...its only 3.5%

Just finishing up a 5.7% pale ale right now. 47 IBUs. If you want it hoppy, just skip all hop additions until 20 minutes. Its called hop bursting or late hopping. Also, try using around 20% of a malty type grain such as munich. This one I am doing is 17% munich so it should be nicely balanced

Oh yeah,hop bursting is def T&A. I started at 25 minutes with 3 different hops,4.5oz. 1.5oz dry hop one week. hoppy with a bit of toasty,bready malt backbone. All extract too. Thinkin of converting it to PM.

Okay, just did my first tasting of the aforementioned recipe. It's only been bottle conditioning for 11 days but it's perfectly drinkable already. I didn't put them in the fridge, so this is just straight from bottle storage to glass, so it was still quite hazy. I tell you I think the MO and Cascade hobs really complement each other, although I would not have guessed this. It definitely could have used some dry hopping, though. As far as this has to do with a "sessionable DIPA" or whatever, not much, as can be guessed. It is "just" a very solid and interesting IPA. I think the most interesting thing by far here is the unexpected marriage of MO and Cascade aided by a dryer malt profile, definitely worthy of more examination.
