A fresh, full-bodied India pale ale is a work of art. But with many hitting 7 percent alcohol or higher, the boozy punch behind them can catch up with you quickly. Not to mention, on gorgeous summer day you prefer a more refreshing brew. Enter the session IPA. Many argue this new substyle is merely a pale ale in disguise, but good session IPAs will have a richer hop character and lighter body than your average pale ale. Whatever you want to call them, they hit the spot after an all-day adventure, while manning the grill, or under a beach umbrella. We rounded up 15 of our favorites — all under 5 percent alcohol — from across America to add to your to-drink list.
