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.

From the bottle, it pours a clear golden amber with a modest head, soon diminishing to nothing, but leaves a bit of lace. Definite hops in the nose and definite hops in the mouth. Easy drinking IPA!

Cloudy gold pour. Not much to the smell. Taste bridges the line between sweet and tart. Not bad

Look: It pours golden and fairly clear with a white head that has good head retention.

Smell: There is a range of tropical fruits including pineapple and a bit of mango. There are also various melon notes that are somewhat sweet. There is bread that forms the background.

Taste: The flavors are a bit light, but feature some tropical fruits with melon. There is a more solid bread background in the flavor than in the aroma. There is a slight citrus and floral element.

Feel: It has a light body with moderately high carbonation.

Overall, this is an easy drinking session beer with strong aromas and lighter flavors.
