Notes / Commercial Description:
Formerly Easy Jack Summer Session IPA

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.

It’s been a while but this one is a good example of a lighter IPA style ale. Nothing stands out about this now almost classic example of the style other than it’s consistently good and easy to drink.

Fresh citrus aroma...oranges, tangerines, pink grapefruit..also some tropical notes of pineapple and passion fruit.

Flavor follows the same path with a nice clean bready malt backing.

Body is what you expect with this style...a little thin...For an IPA I'd rate it as a 3.0 but for this subcategory it is good enough to score 4.0

Quality session IPA...I'd probably take it over All Day IPA but would be interested in doing a blind taster..

LOOKS: A very clear light gold/amber with a small white cap that fades quickly. MIld lacing.
AROMA: Nice bit of dank, and lemon rind.
TASTE: Hops out front with lots of lemon, and that dank. And a bit of caramel malt.
FEEL: Plenty of carbonation, very dry, medium light body.
OVERALL: This is a nice session ipa, not quite as good as Founders, but, close.

This beer pours a clear, sparkling gold with an average head. The aroma is proud and bright, with grapefruit and orange peel, pine, and mango. The flavor is bright and crisp, with lemon, orange, and grapefruit peel, clementine flesh, pine, mango, and pineapple, and solid bitterness. The mouthfeel is medium, with a crisp dry finish. Overall I am pretty impressed - session IPAs are often not my jam, due to a lack of body, but this one seems quite stout, with a good deal of flavor. Impressive and something I could keep drinking.
