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.

Garrold (2340) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 24, 2015
Can. Little Leeds Beer House. Clear gold. Uneven, bubbly, frothy, lasting, just off white head. Tropical fruit, and orange hop, with a light toffee, lightly spicy malt background. Smells fresh, and punchy. Taste is bitter, and juicy, toffee sweet. Slick palate tempered by a good level of prickly fizz. Finishes fairly long, punchy bitter. A nad of sticky sweet stays with it. Good. Not certain I could session it, though.

Saw this listed as a new offering at a local bar. The color on it was lighter than many IPAs but it did not lack in flavor at all. I found it to be quite enjoyable glass. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

ben4321 (4540) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAY 22, 2015
Location: 12 oz bottle from Buy Rite, 5/22/15

Aroma: The aroma is fairly clean, lightly hoppy, some floral and citrus, earth, and a bit of grass
Appearance: It pours a mostly clear orange-good, with an off-white head and coating lace
Flavor: Three flavor is right on what I expected, clean hop, light sweetness, good, clean bitterness
Palate: The body is light medium, not watery or think, easy drinking, and quite clean
Overall Impression: First of, why the heck is this not canned? I mean this is definitely what I personally want in a canned Session IPA. Do better next time.

Braudog (5975) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAY 22, 2015
Bottle. Light in color and body, this is definitely "easy" ... but itís still full of character and worthy of the FW moniker. (#5975, 5/22/2015)

FROTHINGSLOSH (5328) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 18, 2015
Sampled from a 12 oz can this beer poured a bright yellow-gold color with huge creamy-fluffy white head that lingered and left great lacing. The aroma was leafy, floral and fruity hops - fairly robust and a touch earthy. The flavor was bitter, leafy, floral and fruity hops with a bit of earthiness underneath. Medium length finish. Medium body. Decent.

kespecial (114) - - MAY 18, 2015
Pours golden yellow, fluffy white head. Soda-like carbonation. Aroma is mostly citrus, some pine. Taste is quite refreshingly bitter, more citrus; finish very dry. Another review said "crushable" and I agree--a summer sunshine beer for hopheads. A little thin, of course, but considering it is less than 5% itís terrific. One of the better examples of a style that has exploded in the last few years, along with Founders and Stone, IMHO.
