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.

mansquito (4943) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JUL 17, 2010
American Beer Distro ($11): Looks pretty standard, with a not very formidable white head that leaves a nice layer of lacing. Slightly hazy light copper body. When you pop the cap off this beer, the aroma is noticeable about 3 or 4 feet away. That is where you get the floral and citrusy hops flowing all through the air and later all up into your mouth. There is a gently boozy note in the aroma, along with a pleasant amount of dirt. Upon putting it in my mouth, you get tingly hops, that are bitter, but not excessively. A mellow, mildly sweet aspect in the finish. Moderate aftertaste of all the hops A smoky note is detectable somewhere around the middle of the beer. Citrus is there, but they seem to be in dialectical conflict with the hops. Overall a quite excellent IPA, although falls short of the best ones I have had by a slim margin.

drowland (7774) - Georgia, USA - JUL 10, 2010
7/10/10. Bomber courtesy mkade in a killer Summer Secret Santa box! Pours a clear golden amber with a fluffy off-white head that laces quite a bit and stays around as a thick film. The aroma is huge fresh hop with pine, citrus, and a touch of cat pee. The flavor is a great balance between the fresh hop flavors from above and a nice malt backing. A very delicious and balanced brew.

glkaiser (1214) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 9, 2010
Pours a dark golden copper with thick head. Citrus aroma dominates. Taste is a perfect balance of citrus and pine hops, crystal malts, and a bitterness that never gets too strong but lingers nicely. When fresh, this is as good as any IPA out there. Full of hop flavor, balanced, and ultimately drinkable.

GT2 (9411) - Oceanside, California, USA - JUL 9, 2010
355mL. Poured a clear deep red with a huge off-white head that left insane lacing. Aroma was strawberry cheesecake, 3C hops, high alpha acid semi-dank hops. Taste is bland, full of 3C hops, sweaty, old cheesecake hops. Simple palate. Lacking complexity.

Bottled. Thx Snojerk321. Golden colouerd. Unclear. Dense off white head. Aroma of sweetness, fruits, flowers, herbs and light pine. Sweetness, pine, herbs, flowers and light caramel in the flavour. Medium to full bodied. Smooth bitterness in the end. Very drinkable.

evr1dr (145) - Virginia, USA - JUL 1, 2010
UPDATED: JAN 12, 2011 Bottle. Pours caramel-golden with pillowing ivory head. Thick, sticky lacing. Nose of grapefruit, resin, nuts, malt, orange peel and spice. Taste of grapefruit, malt, pine, bread and caramel. Great mouthfeel. Nice malt backbone, but not overpowering. A nicely balanced IPA. The alcohol is well masked and the finish is very smooth. Rerating a very fresh bottle from one of the last shipments the east coast will see for a while. Goodbye UJ, I will miss you good friend.

bleeng (1652) - Houston nowhere near Beersel, Texas, USA - JUL 1, 2010
Tap at 1702 Tucson AZ. Dark gold and clear. Nose is piney hops. Taste is very hoppy but balanced out by the thick maltiness. A bit of alcohol present and this comes off as very drinkable. Well done-I wish I could get this one here in Tx.
