Harpoon ‘Take 5 Session IPA’


I stopped over @TheStraightHops & @PinkPirateNinja’s place on Sunday to check out their newest member of their family. (It’s a dog)
While I was there, I was offered a beer made by Harpoon, their relatively new ‘Take 5 Session IPA’.

Normally I’m okay with this, as they are a good brewery, from the past brews I’ve tried from them.

I was even more intrigued by it being a session IPA, and my now extreme curiosity in trying to become a fan of session beers.

I just can’t wrap my head around them.

Now, unlike my last experience, this was not a good one.

The beer was very bland, had no real flavors.

I had a hard time finishing it.

So this puts me back to square one again, as I just can’t find many good sessions.

Maybe it’s just me, or maybe I am right, we will never know.

But this won’t shy me away, I’ll still keep on the search, although this won’t be one I’ll try again.

I’ll stick to the other beer Harpoon offers, they are much better than ‘Take 5’.


Overall: I give it 2 outta 5 Kegs.

If you’re a fan of sessions, who knows, maybe you’ll appreciate this beer.

As for me, not so much.
