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.

Slightly hazy golden with a small head. The aroma is loaded with orange zest, tangerine, resinous pine, and a bit of floral notes. The flavor is similar but more on the resinous side. Nice body and malt character. Slightly bitter.

On tap at Oskar Blues Restaurant. Very good SIPA (my 2nd favorite behind Founders). Actually more balanced than some others. Zesty aromas.

This is a very nice presentation, both aromatically and visually. The liquid is a light yellow-gold with a soft, pure white head that almost took over the glass. It dissipated quickly, leaving a lacing on the glass, sticky and persistent. The aroma is lightly hoppy, lightly citrus, heavy melon, and almost cough drop-ish in the afterward! This is pleasant, very refreshing and could be one of my favorite sessions. The finish is nice, long, a little bitter, but just bitter enough. Nothing uncomfortable, rather a nice bite that makes you think of a ’good pain’.

SrSilliGose (3269) - pouring bus, New Brunswick, CANADA - AUG 3, 2014
Bottle. simple tropical fruit hops and soft caramel backing. Balance as nice but prefer the no malt character hopped brews as of late. Bitterness in check. Drinkable.
