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 gold into a snifter. Bright white soapy head recedes to mottle surface. Tangerine and caramel aromas. Dry with caramel and slightly metallic tropical fruit upfront turning to citrus in the lasting finish.

Iím little and I need to be coherent to brew beer and do business, so this is the perfect ale for me and I thoroughly enjoy it. I am able to drink it easily and have a few at its low %. The flavors achieved at 4.5% only enforce my confidence in Firestone. The aroma says IPA, and even the flavor says the same, but the % says "just kidding." If you are a fan of Hops and drinkability those are the 2 words Iíd combine to explain this brew.

GG (2326) - NorCal, California, USA - OCT 26, 2014
12oz bottle - Aroma - tropical fruit aroma, dank hops, grassy and herbaceous. No noticeable malt aromas around....right on. Appearance - clear body, gold in color, 2" white head, medium retention Mouthfeel - light bodied, medium carbonation, almost feels like a pilsner Flavor - tropical flavors on the palate, piney power, bready with a clean bitter finish Overall - high marks for Firestone making a phenomenal 1/2 an IPA, or a APA 1.5..whatever. Affordable, it delivers the hops youíd expect from Firestone, zero flaws, super tasty...damn fine.

Straw yellow color, massive head. Hazy but no sediment; some tiny bubbles. The color isnít that impressive but the complexion is. A sticky lace is left over on the sides of the glass. Aroma is super pungent, onion-y hops. Tangerine and heavy clove. There is a very sugary malt balance, just south of a barleywine. Cannot believe this is only 4.5%; it seems boozy in the nose. Pine and spruce. Flavor is more oniony hops, perfumey West Coast hops. Blood oranges and pungent tangerines. A little bit musty, but that might be the age; either way, itís not a bad thing. Slick, oily feel: buttery. This a "dank," flavor-packed beer. Much too flavorful for a session beer, but itís a very good trend.
