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.

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.

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..
