COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An instant classic, Union Jack is the recipient of numerous awards including back to back wins at the Great American Beer Festival. Union Jack is abound with hop aroma and character. In fact this well balanced, west coast IPA is dry hopped 3 separate times, each lot giving it more and more of the grapefruit citrus hop aroma and flavor it is known for. Overall it utilizes over 4 pounds of pacific northwest hops per barrel.

Draught at Todd English Pub in Las Vegas. Amber to orange colour with an even layer of white foam that leaves good lacing on the glass. Great flavour with a big hop punch that lingers and leaves a big hoppy aftertaste.

Tasted at NYC Craft Beer Festival. Hop forward, very little malt sweetness. The hop profile leans towards citrus, plenty of grapefruit, oranges, some pine. Finishes clean and crisp with a powerful hop blast. Excellent.

Wittales (760) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - MAR 2, 2012
Appearance was hazy golden with rocky 2 finger white head and lacing. Aromas are sweet malts upfront that gives way to citrusy piney herbal hops.Alot of hops used in this brew. Taste sweetnees of malts then the power of the hops, all types of beautiful hops flavored there. Palate was smooth creamy carbonation with balanced meduim body of a average length hoppy finish. A work of art...

On tap at the dive bar for beer week. Aroma is pretty typical for a pale ale. Flavour is more on the hoppy side. This is a really good pale, but I wouldn’t expect anything less from Firestone Walker.

From notes. First reviewed 7/22/2010. Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a pint glass. From the bottle, Union Jack pours a transparent light copper color with a medium white head. Decent retention, and some sticky lace. Strong piney hops, with some citrusy notes in the nose as well. Weaker caramel malt exists as an afterthought. The taste starts with a soft, slightly biscuity caramel malt. The piney hops take control, but there is a nice blend with grapefruit and apricot hops. Finishes quite bitter, although there is not much aftertaste. It has a quite crisp carbonated feel. The tight bubbles help to raise the hop oil off the tongue. On the light side of a medium body. I found this to be very easy to drink; quite a hoppy brew, and with such smoothness this goes down extremely easily.

2 dimensional IPA. Very hoppy, malt is fine but its lost in the hops as usual for an IPA. The aroma is nice, and its actually slightly refreshing (unlike most dry, bitter IPAs). Just not my cup of tea i guess... Passable IPA. Doublejack is almost too good to compete with. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
