State of Mind

Collective Arts Brewing's take on the session I.P.A. is a hazy golden number by the name of State of Mind. At just 4.4%, this Burlingtonian beer is easy on the liver, but doesn't give up too much flavour.

State of Mind has a delicious, citrus aroma that tends towards juicy orange. In terms of mouthfeel, this stuff tightropes precariously between crisp and thin. However, there's no shortage of flavour, with bitter citrus singing solo.

Session IPAs and their cousin the American pale ale are all the rage In Ontario right now, and State of Mind is yet another quality example of the style. Not as exquisite as Naughty Neighbour, it's neck and neck with Muskoka's Detour in the next tier. Sold in 355mL bottles that bear cool art from all over, it must be mentioned that Collective Arts' brews are easily among Ontario's best dressed.

Rating: 8.0 out of 10.
