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.

From a can. Hoppy nose was decent on this golden pour with no head. Flavor was not amazing. Some hoppiness with just too much bitter.

Pretty lame/tame IPA especially for Firestone Walker. So safe almost seems intentional. It still an easy drink and a uniquely light session IPA but hop heads should not bother. Nice aroma. Very light pour. Won't be buying again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Very floral aroma with a hint of pine. Transparent gold colour. Floral hints follow through on taste along with a bit of hay. Dry, chalky feel.

The_Osprey (3507) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 31, 2015
Canned March 2015, 4.7%, 12 fl oz, consumed at home. Clear golden dark yellow, sparkling, cratered white head. Aroma is dirty dried flowers, milky, straw, some muted caramel, musty farmyard and citrus. Yep, quite a mix on the nose. Body is light, spritzy, a little foamy. Taste is minerally grapefruit, toffee, dried flowers, malted milk biscuit malts, soft bitterness in the finish. Decent stuff.

KyotoLefty (7876) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUL 30, 2015
Canned. Light t medium gold, hazy. Nce hoppy nose, citrus, trocal fruits, light herbs, crackers. Crisp, hoppy, fruity flavor, very clean malt but just enough for great balance and drinkability. Great hop flavor and not too bitter. Great session beer.

nothing wrong with this easy-drinker. Iíve actually had many like this, so I canít give Walker too much credit. I am happy that there are low ABV IPA options, but many of them tastes the same to me. Nicely made, drinkable. Thatís it for now. multi-12oz bottle servings.

Bottle @ Beer Run / Charlottesville VA --- Hazy medium golden amber color, foamy white head, sheets of lace. Taste is malt that steps aside for a clear shot of hops. Some carbonation on the swallow. Overall this has a little hay, and a little dry biscuit to go with the hops and malt. Pretty nice brew.

Fabulous beer. Beautiful 1 inch head with decent retention. Citrus aroma and very quaffable flavor. Great taste AND less filling! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
