Tonight I went for a run for the first time since the half-marathon back in May. I picked a great day to do it: 95 degrees with nearly 100% humidity. I also picked a fantastic route: all hills. The loop was a little over 2 miles and it kicked my ass. Luckily, there were no negative results as far as my back was concerned.
Tonight I’m reviewing a beer that I discovered last weekend by accident. Firestone Walker Easy Jack. I picked up a six-pack of the stuff because I thought it looked interesting and because the local liquor store in the town I moved to has an unimpressive beer selection. Let’s just say that I’m very glad that I’m still less than 15 minutes from Julio’s. The Easy Jack is a 4.5% session American IPA. As far as I’m concerned, it’s one of the top-3 session IPAs I’ve ever had. Flavor wise, there is a ton of hops action, however it doesn’t come across as over the top. Instead, there’s solid tropical fruit, which is balanced with just enough malt.
Like session IPA? You have to try this beer.
