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.

poisoneddwarf (2204) - Rathdrum, Idaho, USA - APR 12, 2014
12 oz bottle from a six pack bought at Super 1 in Post Falls, ID. Aroma is all grapefruit, all the time. Pours clear golden with a large white head with good retention, leaving lace. Taste is bittersweet and citrusy, finishing with a lingering, but not severe, bitterness. Body is thin--to style--finely carbonated. Nice and well-crafted.

Hanoi (765) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - MAY 25, 2016
Tin. Nose is pine, melon, light lime, hints of pineapple. Taste is pineapple, lime, hints of melon, grape, mineral, then a light dry pine finish. There is a good malt body and hints of yeast, and grass. This is an outstanding session IPA.

JRisWasted (12) - La Palma, California, USA - MAY 24, 2016
Pours a light orange color with decent head. Tropical aromas with a slant towards mandarin. The taste follows the mandarin aroma very closely. A tad of sweetness balances the hops perfectly. Very enjoyable.

Maakun (2867) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAY 20, 2016
Bottle at home. Crystal clear light golden with short lasting white head. Resin, spruce, lime, pineapple, some dried nectarine or peach, soft mineral notes and dry biscuits. Very light sweetness and almost medium bitter. Light bodied with dry feel. Good use of hops!

MarcoDL (3692) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 19, 2016
Bottle. Golden pour. Nice aroma of citrus, grain and mild pine. Fresh taste of citrus, malt, fresh hops, peach and some caramel. Mild hop burn. Very nice and tasty.

I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.

Smell is very floral, a little fruit. Taste is more floral, fuggles or goldings floral. hmm ok, not again though.

willisread (2017) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAY 18, 2016
Can from Aeon Liquors. Big grapefruit dominating nose with orange, pine and mango aromas and a touch of lemon as it warms. Really active carbonation with a light body. Very crisp and clean on the palate. Citrusy and bitter finish, but not astringent. A perfect IPA in a can for summer.

Fantastic session beer. Combines the smoothness of a pale ale with the assertive citrus freshness of a potent IPA.
