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.

Scipio (837) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - MAY 23, 2012
Pours a golden red with a good off white head. Aroma is citrus and hoppy. heavy in grapefruit, some pine, orange, and a bit of pineapple. Taste is extremely hoppy. Lots of grapefruit is the dominant taste. It is piney, with moer citrus fruits; mango, lemon, pineapple. Big hoppy aftertaste. Full bodied, sticky texture, and bitter. This is one fine IPA.

This one smells great from the outset. Fruity, almost apple aroma. Foam has staying power. Taste doesnt completely follow through, but still is quite good. Tracing good patterns, plenty of hoppy bitters. Pour an amber-like clear. From health food store in lebanon, NH.

Pours to a beautiful copper with a nice one finger head and spiderweb lacing. I shared a bomber with my buddy and was disappointed to have to share it (that’s friendship, huh?). This beer has a malty, caramel aroma with a slight resin tone. This is a smooth IPA, like a buttery Chardonnay, it floats on the palate. A nice caramel malt with very slight fruit on the tastebuds. It has a great linger. If it wasn’t 7.5% ABV, it would be a great session.

PhillyCraft (5874) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 20, 2012
UPDATED: DEC 1, 2012 On tap and bottles. Pours a slightly hazy copper color with small head and medium lacing. Aromas and taste of biscuity malt, lemon zest, pine, other citrus fruits. Medium bodied and only a tad bitter. Smooth and sessionable ipa. Re rate, draft at PH, ultra citrusy, bitter, oniony hops. Very nice.

wchesser (1915) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 19, 2012
UPDATED: JAN 4, 2015 Solid IPA, would gladly drink anytime. Resiny, grassy hop aroma. Clean bitter finish. Will stick with Dale’s in fhe future though just to keep it local when I’m in the mood for something like this (I think Dale’s is marginally better too).

Deep gold, very clear, persistent off-white head. Aroma: loads of citrusy hop aroma (orange and grapefruit), with underlying grainy malt with hints of caramel. Flavor: up front citrusy and lightly grassy hop flavor, lingering resinous hop bitterness has slight vegetal character, grainy malt backbone with some crystal malt notes, balanced finish.

355 ml bottle thanks to gusgus! Sampled on May 14, 2012
Fresh, citrussy, hoppy scent, there’s also a malty backbone to balance it. Clear golden color, medium off-white head. Hoppy, citrus, fresh, bitter, malty sweet, some alcohol taste. Smooth mouthfeel, medium high bitterness.
Very well balanced, very drinkable. Green and fresh.

Smooth. Very smooth. Little to no head, hoppy yet a great after taste that doesn't destroy your palate. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

SamP01 (658) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 12, 2012
Poured into a shaker glass a clear coppery amber with a medium white lasting head, with good lacing. Aroma of floral piney hops, caramel malt and some citrus notes fill the senses. Taste is of floral piney hops, grapefruit and citrus notes along with some caramel malt flavor. A medium smooth body with good carbonation on the palate. The finish is sweet caramel malt, citrus notes followed by some good floral piney hops on the end for balance. Flavor and aroma of caramel malt becomes stronger as it warms up. Overall a very good well rounded and tasty IPA.
