Tobin’s Review 2.5 out of 5
Firestone Walker Easy Jack IPA has a very light complexion with a small head. The beer resembles the color of a Rolling Rock and it has a slight aroma of hops. The flavors of the beer is more pungent with hops. It reminds me of a Budweiser with noticeable hops that were added to it. It’s a very light drinkable beer, but at the end of the day it’s just average.
