4.18/5 rDev +6.6%
12oz bottle poured into my FW imperial nonic glass
Notes taken on 04/20/14
A: Easy Jack pours a light golden amber body with precision like clearness. Streaming carb is evident leading up to a sudsy topping of paper white foam. Retention efforts are fair and only a few scattered dots of stick are left clinging to the glass.
S: Brilliantly floral nose with blasts of conifer forest and tangerine fruit. I am getting some lesser notes of earthy herbals and a dash of pale malt bready sweetness. Nicely done with a very hop forward nose.
T: Flavors follow suit with a healthy hop punch across the palate delivering flowery pines and assorted citrus fruit flavors. Mostly tangerine however some lemon lime and grapefruit start to emerge. A healthy dose of bready malts brings great balance to this session IPA. It really drinks bigger than the 4.5% ABV. Has a slight touch of resinous dank herbs and grass on the finish although it’s not very prevalent. This is tasty and very very clean. Impeccably well executed.
M: Body is very light but feels bigger on account of the malt breadiness. Nice spritzy carb provides a lovely texture complimenting the upper moderate amount of bitterness. Very dry and crisp on the finish with a slight resinous after feel. Mostly clean otherwise.
D: A very good and balanced Session. This is one of the few that didn’t leave me wanting for something more. Has just enough malt presence to cover the spread over all dem fresh hops. It is quite refreshing. Firestone Walker did a great job with staying true to the Jack family here. An all around great beer that satisfies.

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.

Smell: tangerines and tropical fruits
Taste: tangerine, toasted malt, orange, light grapefruit and pine
