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.

Good hops in the front and a nice bitter character, what hurts this one overall for me is that it has sort of a thick body and sweetness...I guess from the relatively high abv for an IPA. That part of it is more characteristic if a DIPA to me and takes away from the "crisp and refreshing" I like in an IPA. Good, not great for my oreferences.

Good beer overall. It is interesting to taste this and then Double Jack. It really shows where all of the flavors and character are coming from.

Pours clear deep gold into a snifter. Bright white head with good retention recedes leaving spider lacing. Resin and grapefruit aromas. Dry with bitter pith upfront turning to sweet toffee before the sour earth and resin finish.

Just tapped at Lunar Brewing Co., and dispensed to a shaker with a clear, golden hue, moussy, off white/light cream, fairly lasting head foam, and foamy cling to the curtainy lacing. The aroma was a pleasant but mellow combination of citrus as orange & grapefruit, resiny pine, and soft malt. This nice Pale Ale nose then morphed into something a lot bigger in the flavor with a blast of tongue coating, strong and lingering hop bitterness, enough malt to support it, and some hints of woodiness. Kick ass, and one of the best IPAs I’ve had in awhile!

Poured on tap from the Lazy Dog Cafe. It had a honey like color with a hoppy aroma. Taste is very good with some pine and citrus. Very refreshing.

Nicely balanced and flavorful IPA. The aroma and taste are that of lightly toasted malts and subtle caramel with the dominating factor being a citrus hop and spruce character. The beer finishes crisp and medium dry with a really nice citrus character. Good stuff.

22 oz. bottle- Pours orange golden with a nice frothy bone white head and decent lace. Aroma is all hops, spicy piney hops, some citrus. The taste is sticky grapefruit hops, floral, wonderful IPA, some peach, mildly bitter, it has a malt backbone that is not too noticeable, great beer. The body is medium, carbonation is medium, sticky on the palate. This is a close to perfect IPA, I would like a little more bittering hops, but that is nitpicking, great beer.

Draught. Pours a clear golden with a frothy white head. Smells of grapefruit and other citrus and floral hops. Tastes if a light bitterness and sweetness, very complementary. Light bodied. Medium carbonation. Finishes slightly dry. A very easy to drink ipa.

Was just talking about having not rated this one for some reason, so why not order a bottle and knock it off while enjoying one anyway? Light amber color with a nice initial head and minimal lacing. Aroma of citrus and resinous elements, comparable to stone. Flavor follows with a good piney resinous kick, but this also has a mildly juicy malt base to round it out. Mouthfeel is fairly full for the style but quite drinkable.
