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 (1844) - 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.

penstemon (192) - Nevada, USA - MAR 31, 2015
Pours clear golden yellow with a small white head. Aroma is fresh and fruit-dominated, with grapefruit, peach, pine, orange, and biscuit. Taste is grapefruit, orange, slight stone fruit, herbal/pine, slight caramel, and biscuit. Low-med bitterness. Light body, foamy. Smells really amazing, but the lightness of the body reduces the punch of the flavor. As far as session IPAs go this is a good one.

A fine session IPA and easy drinking, though I’m not sure what all the fuss is about. Pours clear gold with a thing white cap. Fresh hop aroma and taste with low bitterness.

Bottle 355ml. Pours blond with low-medium white head, some lacing. Aroma is of citrus, fruits. Taste is of very nice citrus, fruits, bitterness. Palate: Light-medium body. Medium carbonation. Overall: Quite nice, easily drinkable. Well balanced, refreshing.

tom10101 (3397) - Quebec, CANADA - MAR 27, 2015
Bottle (12 oz) bought @ Cambridge Wine & Spirits. Bottled on February 5th 2015, so 1½ month old. Hotel Room Tasting.

Appearance: Clear bright golden with a small easy to revive white head and little lacing.

Aroma: Fruity notes (passionfruit, grapefruits, melon) with spruce, grains and mild spiciness.

Taste: Spruce at first followed by grapefruits and passionfruit. Light malty presence, but enough to support. Light bitterness.

Palate: Light body, but never watery. Moderate carbonation. Citrusy and spruce finish. Moderately dry.

Overall: As flavorful and aromatic as FW Union Jack but with 3% less abv? I’m in! Super drinkable and quenching. One of the really good session IPA out there. I loved it.

Marheb (2785) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 26, 2015
Ce liquide est dans une classe à part, autant d’aromatique qu’une ipa et une présence en bouche qui ne laisse aucun vide. Un mélange d’agrumes, de miel de fleur et d’herbes fraiches. Un classique dès la première gorgée, content de la revoir.

whitehotg8 (71) - Illinois, USA - MAR 26, 2015
Can into the ipa glass. Golden in color, almost like a pilsener with a frothy true white head. The aromatics of this tiny ipa are huge; melon fruits, honeycomb cereal, tangerine, peach and easy going hops. Taste is satisfying with sweet fruits, slight grains and just a pinch of those hallertau buds in there. I’m loving this session ipa. Stacks up easily against All Day ipa IMO. Try it, you won’t regret it.

From the 12 fl. oz. can marked 02-27-15. Golden yellow, heady pour. Lovely aromas of floral, citrus, grass, and pine with a vague cereal, toasted biscuit character behind it all. Mostly medium body. Floral, citrus hops abound in the taste with a lingering bitterness at the end. It is done right.

Pours a clear golden with a small white head that leaves good lacing. Nose is really fruity and loaded with litchees. Taste is dry, fruity and moderately bitter. Body is light to medium and carbonation light. Overall a really nice session IPA, I could drink a lot of that!

This didn’t seem like a session IPA. To me, the Easy Jack was more like a regular IPA. Brewmaster Matt musta done one hell of a job! This session-style IPA has got to be the best one I’ve sampled so far. The Victory 19 would be second. Anyway, I sampled a pint of this beauty in Harleysville at the Butcher and the Barkeep. Easy Jack poured a bright and clean light golden color with a substantial white head. The head left some really nice lacing around the glass, as well. The nose was abrasive and spicy. The hop profile and flavors were aggressive and delicious. The pine and citrus notes made this beer into a huge winner! Maybe I can find some cases of this stuff around my neighborhood!

Poured from a can. Hazy gold. Small white head. Lots of lacing. Nice citrus aroma. Nice bitterness. Good session IPA. Great on a hot day. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
