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.

Itís a bit watery. Ate it with some crackers, and it was suppressed by them. Overall, itís nice, you get some hop funk, but itís pretty weak.

Can - from sampler pack. Very pale, slightly cloudy. Slight hoppy aroma. Some hops but weak as crap. "session IPA" shouldnít even be a style. The UK already has "mild ale" and such for this sort of thing. Donít like.

Keg at the York, Islington. Gold, white head, light fizz. Tropical fruits at first, trailing a little grapefruit in their wake. Good balance of sweet malts against a mild bitterness. Maybe not quite as full-bodied as it could be (itíd obviously be better on cask), but clean, crisp, refreshing and very drinkable. Rather a nice beer.

Clear golden color with white head. Aroma is really hoppy and bright with floral and tropical fruit notes. Taste starts hoppy and bitter up-front but not too intense, just the right amount to be easy drinking. Light body with medium carbonation. Overall itís a really aromatic IPA just the taste is not that intense. But hey, itís a session IPA, it is what itís supposed to be.

__Rb81 (642) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 7, 2016
Bottle at home (bottled 02/19/16). Pours clear golden with a white head. Aroma of light fruity hops, orange zest, malts, tangerine. Taste is light to moderate bitter, light sweet, fruity hops, tangerine, malts, grapefruit. Malty, light bitter aftertaste. Bit thin, not that bitter, maybe bit too old already?

On tap at Owl and Pussycat Taproom and Kitchen (Busan) into a Firestone pint glass. It poured a clear straw gold colour with a one finger white puffy head that had good retention and good lacing. Aromas of citrus grapefruit, light lemon, lime, honey and biscuit malt. Tastes of light citrus, candy grapefruit, biscuit malt, honey and light caramel. Light bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall an easy to drink Session IPA, but perhaps the flavours are not quite my favourite.
