3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle dated 10/30/15.
For today, this was poured into a tulip.
The appearance was a nice looking hazy orange color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within less than a minute. Lotsa nice foamy lacing stuck finely to the glass.
The smell had a sweet sticky grapefruit-esque leading to fine subtle juicy citrus and decent underscore of pine to balance.
The taste was pure bittersweet and refined to a sly subtle sticky citrusy conglomeration of pine. The aftertaste was mainly bitter that lead to a slightly dry finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a medium on the body. 9.5% - really? Maybe closer when its fresh, not necessarily now. Still good and has a decent substantial carbonation to pound my tongue into submission.
Overall, pretty good DIPA that I would have again. I’ll definitely seek fresher my next chance.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Picked up a bomber at Total Wine in Glendale Arizona. Bottle dated 11/24/14, so it is a bit aged
Aroma. Older bottle so the aroma is pretty faint.
Appearance - good looking beer. Great golden color.
Palate - very good mouthfeel. Doesn’t feel like a 9% beer.
Overall - good beer, I enjoyed the fresher Union Jack better, but I would try this again if it were fresher.

355mL bottle that pours golden with a big white head. Fairly standard caramel/grapefruit aroma. Lots of grapefruit in the flavour as well as a sticky caramel and slight resinous pine.

A solid imperial IPA with loads of malt to help balance.

Bottle. Aroma is dominated with hops straight away, loads of pine, grapefruit, citrus. Taste is the same, little bit of biscuit, long lasting taste of lemon, grapefruit, pine. Medium carbonation, really smooth, oily texture. Very easy drinking. Lovely stuff.
