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.

Tap at Capitol Beer in Sacramento, CA. Pours light gold with a white head. Aroma is light stone fruity. Med minus body. Flavor suggests peach. Bitter tho. Lightly bitter. It’s very smooth and tasty. I rate this very sessionable. Finishing drier than not. A little malt finally gets my attention. Nice.

Bottle @ home. Been waiting for this one! Clear as day golden pour with a white head. Holy tropical fruit. Passion fruit, grapefruit, and pineapple. Really fucken dank. Slight popcorn and toast. Flavor is bitter pine, grapefruit, and orange peel. A hint of blueberry muffin. Tons of pineapple and passion fruit, too. Only flaw is a bit of green onion on the finish.

daknole (9401) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAY 13, 2014
Pours a fairly pale gold with a bright white head. This is quite tasty indeed. Just a refreshing glass of light hops, medium amount of malt and a bright grassy, citrusy flavor. Nice job again FW.

[ Bottle ][ DedicatedToFun ][ 12oz ][ Tasting ][ Stemless Wine Taster ][ 5/10/14 ]
>> Pours clear, light orange. Good foam. Nose is dank citrus hops, juicy orange, melon. Taste is orange gummy bears, white grape, a bit sticky feeling. Palate is slightly dusty. Huh, a little disappointing. Maybe newer batches will improve so this can be a regular buy of mine.
