The new wave of hoppy beers with less alcohol than the standard IPA has given hopheads a lighter option to get their fix. Easy Jack is Firestone Walker's entry to the dish. Seeing a six-pack at Trader Joe's got my attention, as did my thirst at the time. On to the beer:
The head forms low and has a soapy texture. Below rests a somewhat pale gold color with a few squirts of visible carbonation bubbles. There's an appetizing aroma, which before you brain starts to process the notes, is telling you to drink it. It's like perfume in character, full of rich cantaloupe, melon, passionfruit, pine, and a dry crackery base.
Light IPA yes, but quite flavorful without the weight. Not only is the flavor sublime; filled with soft fruits, but the level which this can be consumed is unmatched by all but a few beers. It's light bodied, nowhere being bitter, and quite frankly a totally different animal from Union Jack IPA.
Why limit it to the summer? Easy Jack would make for great year-round drinking.

Pale yellow with a fluffy white foam head. Bread, oranges, and herbal in the nose. Light-bodied, grapefruit, citric, grassy, tannic, orange rinds with a dry, mineral finish. Packed with flavor and extremely drinkable.
A very solid session beer for those looking for light and hoppy.

12 oz bottle. Pours clear straw yellow with a medium creamy white head that goes to a thin film, leaves a little lacing and then almost disappears.
The aroma is very subdued - slightly vegetative, piney, resiny hops.
The flavor is sweet bready malts with some spicy, peppery, piney hops. The mouthfeel is light bodied and a bit watery.
Overall, an OK blandish session IPA. There's almost no nose, it's pretty thin, the flavors are OK but it's a bit on the sweet side.

Appearance: 1 inch head, gold in color, high carbonation, clear
Smell: tangerines and tropical fruits
Taste: tangerine, toasted malt, orange, light grapefruit and pine
Mouthfeel: slightly bitter, light bodied with high carbonation
Overall: A nice, citrusy and light IPA. I like other beers from Firestone Walker better, but if I am looking for a nice IPA to sip, I will reach for this.
