Brewer Description: (from website) Easy Jack came about when Brewmaster Matt Brynildson went to the mountain top 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 newer hop varieties from Germany, New Zealand and North America. He foresaw a beer that would deliver massive hop aromas, surprising dimension, 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.

Intro: On tap at Owl and Pussycat Taproom and Kitchen (Busan) into a Firestone pint glass.
Appearance: Clear straw gold colour with a one finger white puffy head that had good retention and good lacing.
Aroma: Citrus grapefruit, light lemon, lime, honey and biscuit malt.
Taste: Light citrus, candy grapefruit, biscuit malt, honey and light caramel.
Mouthfeel: Light bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: Easy to drink Session IPA, but perhaps the flavours are not quite my favourite.
