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 (1951) - 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.

Bottle @ Beer Run / Charlottesville VA --- Hazy medium golden amber color, foamy white head, sheets of lace. Taste is malt that steps aside for a clear shot of hops. Some carbonation on the swallow. Overall this has a little hay, and a little dry biscuit to go with the hops and malt. Pretty nice brew.

12oz can. Pours a golden color with small tan head and soft carbonation. Rich citrusy hop aroma with some biscuity malt aroma as well. Citrusy bitterness up front with a bit of sweet caramel malt following. Medium bodied with lingering bitterness in the finish. Quite flavorful, especially among Session IPAs.

Finhead (1350) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - JUL 16, 2015
Clear, golden pour with a rocky, white head. The aroma is very hoppy with notes of citrus and pine. It has a light body with crisp texture and lively carbonation. The taste is mildly bitter with a quick finish.

yngwie (15377) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 15, 2015
Can, at The Corner Foodery, Philadelphia. Itís a clear, golden beer topped by a small, off-white head. The aroma has oranges, grapefruit and some pale malts. Itís rather low on bitterness in the flavor, with orange zest, grapefruit and a light malty backdrop. Medium to full body and a nice carbonation level. Quite bitter finish with some malts. A rather boring one, especially the initial flavor. 150622

gegwilson (2102) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 12, 2015
Can in the Marketplace Ale House, Doncaster. Pours golden with a foamy white head. Big pine aroma to get the taste buds going. The taste is big with lots of resinous pine and a tropical feel. Ridiculously drinkable. I could tip this down my neck. As youíd expect from a lower ABV beer, itís a little light in body, but very good all the same.
