Pours with the slightest bit of cloudiness. Small pure white foam dissipates rather quickly, leaving light traces of its presence.
Aroma is the star. The use of new German hops lend a pleasant fresh citrus and tropical. Light caramel, mainly just pure sweetness, and a touch of grain add trivial balance and complexity. The hops are the star.
Taste is more subdued than the aroma. The hops aren't as prevalent, allowing more malt to shine. Delicate for an IPA. Passion fruit and melon stick with you.
Light body with medium carbonation that adds to the overall mouth feel. Bitterness is minimal and clean.
Big aroma for such a light beer. Definitely the star of another fine offering from Firestone. The taste is more tame, well balanced. Definitely a nice drinking beer that I would recommend to anyone. Gone before you know it. Enjoy!

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.
