COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Mac & Jackís IPA is a refreshing, smooth, and balanced India Pale Ale. Using a variety of specialty malts and plenty of locally grown Yakima valley hops, we have created an IPA that has great hop flavor without being bitter. Pale roasted malts give our IPA a deep golden hue, and solid malt backbone, which nicely compliments its crisp hop finish. Copious quantities of hops are added very late in the boil giving the beer its floral aroma and hop forward character.

Tap @ Africa Lounge - Seatac: cloudy copper color with a fluffy cream colored head and some sticky lacing. Quite a green aroma of fresh musty hops, some floral notes. Hoppy bitter flavor with some pine and juniper shrub. Kind if a funky aftertaste where this beer probably gets itís lower rating. Weird, like sour oats and hairspray. If they fixed that this would be a great brew.

Average NW Single IPA. Nice malt profile, hops donít stand out enough for any cray IPA drinker though.

brokensail (10955) - Orange County, California, USA - SEP 7, 2014
On tap @ Africa Lounge (SEA-TAC). Light amber/orange pour with white foam. Some butterscotch and caramel malts up front...damnit. Floral and lightly citrusy hops. Toasted grain and some hints of pine. Flavor has a lot of malt sweetness of butterscotch, caramel, and bread. Light bitterness of pine and citrus rind. Decent floral character. Meh.

Draft at africa lounge. Poured into frozen glass, cold enough that there's slush in the glass. Going to let it sit as long as I can, but i have a plane to catch and unlike African amber which is on tap everywhere in Seattle, I don't know when I'll see this again outside of the airport. Amber color, dense white foam head that lasts forever. Aroma: tropical citrus, pine, caramel underneath. Taste: light-moderate sweetness, biscuit, dank hop bitterness in the finish. palate: medium body, lively carbonation; still so cold. finish duration neither short nor long. Overall: I hate flying. Thank goodness for alcohol. A perfectly reasonable ipa for 9:00 am. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a light amber with a small head. Smell is fruity, almost berry like. Taste is tropical and refreshing, very unique, bit of pine on the end. The more you drink, the less good it gets. Not bad, better than I remembered.

22415brewery (372) - redmond, Washington, USA - OCT 15, 2011
UPDATED: MAR 31, 2012 Pours a very light straw with quickly dissipating head. Fairly clear in the glass. Aroma hints at powdered sugar, grapefruit, lemony citrus, and light notes of passionfruit. Little to no malt presence, although a big note of biscuit. Well attenuated IPA, high level of carbonation for the style. Finishes fairly dry, little to no off flavors. Quite different than their namesake flagship ale, which could be considered a good thing. Above average for an IPA but nothing noteworthy or outstanding.
