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.

ben4321 (5359) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAY 22, 2015
Location: 12 oz bottle from Buy Rite, 5/22/15

Aroma: The aroma is fairly clean, lightly hoppy, some floral and citrus, earth, and a bit of grass
Appearance: It pours a mostly clear orange-good, with an off-white head and coating lace
Flavor: Three flavor is right on what I expected, clean hop, light sweetness, good, clean bitterness
Palate: The body is light medium, not watery or think, easy drinking, and quite clean
Overall Impression: First of, why the heck is this not canned? I mean this is definitely what I personally want in a canned Session IPA. Do better next time.

Braudog (6177) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - MAY 22, 2015
Bottle. Light in color and body, this is definitely "easy" ... but itís still full of character and worthy of the FW moniker. (#5975, 5/22/2015)

FROTHINGSLOSH (6197) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 18, 2015
Sampled from a 12 oz can this beer poured a bright yellow-gold color with huge creamy-fluffy white head that lingered and left great lacing. The aroma was leafy, floral and fruity hops - fairly robust and a touch earthy. The flavor was bitter, leafy, floral and fruity hops with a bit of earthiness underneath. Medium length finish. Medium body. Decent.

kespecial (187) - - MAY 18, 2015
Pours golden yellow, fluffy white head. Soda-like carbonation. Aroma is mostly citrus, some pine. Taste is quite refreshingly bitter, more citrus; finish very dry. Another review said "crushable" and I agree--a summer sunshine beer for hopheads. A little thin, of course, but considering it is less than 5% itís terrific. One of the better examples of a style that has exploded in the last few years, along with Founders and Stone, IMHO.

Can. Tastes like grapefruit, a hint of resin, fruity, floral hops, and toasted malt. Light/medium body and carbonation. Smells like grapefruit, fruity floral hops, and toasted malt.

jake65 (3236) - Meridian, Idaho, USA - MAY 16, 2015
Can: Yellow, sort of bright and golden, topped with a modest white head. Aroma is sharp; citrus and floral hops. Clean hop flavor, more citrus and florals, with a light underlying malty sweetness. Solid, big. A session IPA that drinks like an IPA, finally.

rosenbergh (9680) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 12, 2015
Draught at the Firestone Walker Barrelworks, Buellton, CA.
Clear golden colour with a small white head. Fruity and soda hops, sweetness and mild bitterness in a balanced aroma. Fruity hops, sweetness and mild bitterness in the flavour. Very fruity and tasty. Maybe a tad too sweet.
