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.

Pours clear golden with a good sized soapy white head. The aroma has a mix of tropical fruits (guava/mango) and citrus (orange,/grapefruit) and some nice light caramel malt with just a hint. It has a medium body that is smooth at first and then gets crisp with good amt of carbonation for the style. The flavor starts off much like the aroma, but starts with a bit richer malt. The finish is quite heavy on the grapefruit and has some cracker notes, but the rich tropical fruits and caramel retain the whole way through. Really nice session IPA.

Foxbush (1483) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JUN 19, 2015
12 oz bottle from Kroger This is nice easy drinking IPA. The ale poured a clear light amber with a lingering off-white head and modest lacing. the aroma was of pine resin and grapefruit rind. The medium body ale had average carbonation. This brewery is one of my favorites. I hope they decide to come East as some of the West Coast Breweries have done. A dry clean finish wraps up this approachable ale.

A great hoppy IPA- it's hard to believe it has such a low alcohol. Great aroma and flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

MartinT (8492) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 12, 2015
My Bottom Line:
This sessionable Pale Ale’s juicy citrus fruit and floral angles deliver an easygoing profile with well positioned herbal bitterness.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam covers the translucent pale golden.
-Mouthfeel is super lean, which increases drinkability.
-This one lacked a little bite for my tastes in the style. Perhaps a question of freshness?
-Malts offered basic cereal flavors which ably supported the fruity hop aromatics.

On tap at Toronado San Diego.

Keg at Brewdog Camden, London. A golden coloured pour with a medium white head on top. Hoppy, citrus, pine aroma. Tastes similar, hoppy, citrus , pine. Rather thin for me.
