COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewmaster Matt Brynildson went to the mountain and returned with a vision for a different kind of Session IPA, one that would be brewed and dry hopped with a globetrotting selection of new hop varieties from Europe, New Zealand and North America. He foresaw a beer that would deliver massive hop aromas, a signature malt balance and an empty glass before you knew what hit you. And so the newest member of our Jack IPA family was born.

Clear pale amber with a frothy off-white head with lots of lacing. Aroma of citrus, caramel, grain, and tropical fruit. Taste is toasty grain, mildly sweet, and a little bit more so bitter. Nicely balanced, very easy drinking. Light-medium bodied, crisp

355 ml bottle. Enjoyed at Los Angeles, CA. Pours a slightly hazy yellow colour with a small foamy head. Aroma of herbal hops, white grapes and biscuit. Flavour of biscuit malts, citrusy hops, sweet toffee and mild herbal notes. Light bodied. Unfortunately not a fresh bottle.

jgb9348 (5115) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - AUG 26, 2015
Crisp, completely clear golden and light copper coloured body with a nice, dense, three centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of ridiculously dank hops, tropical fruits, citrus, fresh-cut grass and more resin - very very nice smelling - perhaps the best light IPA i’ve smelt. Light-bodied; Sharp pungent grassy, herbal and resinous flavour with a very mild malt flavour, but all the hops - including a nice bit of hybrid/tasman-based hops with the tropical fruit flavour pungently noticeable. Aftertaste is light and airy without the slightest bit of depth nor heaviness. Overall, a very nice Light IPA, definitely up there in terms of the best, but this one with a good variety of hops and flavours is definitely worth buying a lot of! I sampled this twelve ounce stubby bottle purchased from Total Wine in Alexandria, Virginia on 17-May-2015 for US$2,24 sampled at home in Washington on 25-August-2015 and held up very well over the 3 months!

Golden beer with an off-white head. Nice grapefruit and tropical fruit aroma. Grapefruit and light pine flavor with light tropical fruit and light grain. Medium bodied. Good bitterness. Grapefruit and light pine linger with light tropical fruit

On tap at Red Stone. Suuuuper nice drinking brew. Good balance, toasted malt and pine hop flavors combine easily with a citrus component, wheat and earth. Medium bite and duration.

Smithld1 (42) - Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 20, 2015
Can. Quite clean, mellow, a liitle bit of tang. Pretty dull but perfectly doable. A good session ipa but not the one for me

cmacklin (446) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 18, 2015
12fl.oz. can. Pours a clear golden with a small, short lived white head. Aroma of grapefruit, peach, mango and hay. Sweet flavour of grapefruit, tropical fruit, grass and light malt with a mildly dry, bitter, hoppy finish. Medium body with a watery texture and soft carbonation. Not bad.

ElManana (1144) - Scheldewindeke, BELGIUM - AUG 17, 2015
Bottle at home, aquired in a trade. Very grainy, light bitter, lots of taste for the low ABV. Nice, but could’ve done with moreo bitterness.
