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.

Huge billowy head lives up to the mug shot on the label. Very smooth, drinkable IPA. Very hoppy, grapefruit flavors in every sip. I am a IPA fan and this is definitely a well priced beer I will continue to consume. Nice amber color and finishes very nice. I like a little bitter kick at the end. This one wonít dissappoint!!!

12 oz. bottle. pours a clear light amber with a smallish white head, fading to a ring around the glass with decent lacing throughout. aroma of grapefruit, some orange and pine. flavor has some sticky malt sweetness, but this one has a nice lingering bitterness through-out. low carbonation, just enough to bring it all together. finding a beer like this is why I still enjoy trying new ( to me ) and untried beers. very nice IPA!

Draft at Lemon Tree. Sometimes, a wonderful can help transcend a really awful day. Like today. Aw, letís skip the details and describe the beer they had fresh on tap during half-price draft Tuesday. A zesty fresh hop smell from the glass while itís still sitting two feet from me. From its name, I thought itíd be an English IPA, but this has a lot of Yankee in it. A clear amber color that only shows a little haze up close, with a spongy head that ends up lacing the glass. Getting closer, the nose reveals hints of green grass, currants, lemon and some pine from hops. A very hoppy mouthfeel, big on green hops, but still very enjoyable. After the first few sips, we find thereís some thick, sticky malts. Produces hoppy burps, too. Exactly the beer I wanted to feel a little less down tonight.

Bottle. Strong sharp hop aroma, clear deep golden color, nice white head. Bitterness of a good IPA. Very solid all around, top class IPA.

Amber pour with a soft, sizzling head. Pleasant hop aroma. Some iron, grapefruit, citrus, and plenty of piney hops. Nice mouthfeel and very tasty. This stuff hits the mark, i.m.o. - just what I want in a reasonably priced, medium strength IPA. Adrian says we were fortunate to get it fresh.

Pours a remarkably clear pale amber with 1 finger of perfect head that stays for the whole glass, leaving pretty lacing along the way. Aroma is very hoppy with notes of grass, grapefruit, resin, and the cheesiness of fresh hops with a biscuity malt undertone. Taste is honey, caramel, resin, grapefruit, and herbs. Body is medium, creamy, low carbonation, finishes dry and hoppy. Overall, a fantastic rendition of an American IPA, basically a perfect beer.

lupulicious (30) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 24, 2011
Draft @ EastBurn (and many other places in recent years.) Big bodacious C-hop bomb IPA, sort of an exemplar of the California IPA style. Grapefruit & a bit of pine in the nose. Golden color, bit of haze chill, loose head, thin sheets. Peppery snappy malt profile fades to citrusy hop finish.

Frank (3470) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 24, 2011
This is a straight down the middle American IPA and a damn good one. It doesnít look like much, sort of a hazed pale body and rocky head of large bubbles but who cares what it looks like when thereís this much hops in the nose. This is a very fragrent beer w/ loads of floral, honey-like notes and vibrant, juicy citrus. This is dry and comes off just slightly thin bodied due to lower than average carbonation but the robust and slightly biting bitterness in the finish easily make up for any shortcoming. I wish this werenít so strong so I could drink more of it. That is a good thing in an IPA.
