4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A very enjoyable dipa the only thing is that it is overly grapefruity which makes the beer very sticky in itís palate. Instead of wanting to drink more, you find yourself wanting a glass of water. the color is very appetizing and besides the overwhelming grapefruit taste, this is one of the better dipaís Iíve had.

Pours mid to dark amber with notes of bitter citrus fruit. The citrus becomes more pronounced on the palate and the malt ties in a nice yin to the bitterness of the hops yang. Big long finish for a great DIPA.

Pours perfectly clear copper with a medium white head. Strong aroma of hops and booze with hints of caramel malt. Flavor is bittersweet caramel and hops. Strong bold flavor with booze and citrus. Holy hops this one is strong. Hopheads must love this. Very good

This is another you know it when you taste DIPA. Starting with the citrus nose and the golden pour and onto the awesome yet enigmatic flavor this deserves itís spot in the top 25. Truly a great experience.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
From a 22oz bomber into snifter. Pours with some really nice fluffy head. Plenty of lacing. Aroma is of flowers, lime, and alcohol. Color is a gorgeous orange. Mouthfeel is almost the same as the regular FW Jack... which is to say, very nice. Taste is of flowers, honey, pine, mango, pineapple and alcohol. An excellent DIPA. I gotta say, I do like the regular FW Union Jack a little better than this one... but still, this is a keeper.

Tap sample. Poured copper color with a large frothy white head that was mostly lasting with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy sour citrus west coast hop and fruit aroma. Medium to full body with slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy smooth bittersweet citrus flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration.This is a standout beer.

09-JUL-2011, bottle @UlklÝbben Summerparty. Brought by Henrik.
Clear orange with white head.
Lemon and grape fruit is evident.
Some malts in the background but still a bit thin bodied. Long creamy aftertaste that is really bitter. Fantastic taste with loads of fruity hoppy stuff. Really good IIPA.
