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.

UXO (772) - CANADA - JUN 6, 2015
Pours clear deep gold with a short, short-lived white head, patchy lacing. (4/5) Nose is bright pine resin, citrus, pale malt, light tropical fruit. (8/10) Taste is mild sweet, moderate bitter. (8/10) Medium to light body, moderate carbonation, off-dry warming finish. (4/5) “Lions, bears, and beers”? Oh my! An enjoyable A/IPA with a bit of E/IPA malt character. For me, the first sip was the best - after that, the maltiness becomes just a tiny more pronounced than I’d prefer. This would be a great beer with a BBQ or camp fire, though. As long as I didn’t have to drive afterwards - because not that this one is hot, by any means, but at 7.5%ABV, it’ll get the job done quicker than many. (16/20)

Medium golden yellow, thin head. Musty pine bitter nose. Some light carb and acidity on the palate with decent length throughout the palate to reasonably decent length. Not bad.

Livendadream (154) - New Mexico, USA - JUN 2, 2015
Pours light golden slightly hazy color. Huge off white head that lingers for quite a while leaving copious amounts of lace on glass. Smells of grapefruit,pine, toffee and molasses. Tastes of citrus fruits,sweet caramel and a hint of raisins. Light body, silky mouthfeel, good lively carbonation and a slightly dry peppery finish. Balanced and tasty with a fresh hop aroma truly make this beer stand out among other IPA’s . Fantastic!!!

Can from The Beerhive. Clear golden body with a thin white head. Low carbonation. Faint lacing. Aroma of earth, orange marmalade, ginger and pine. Flavour of fig, blood orange and a peppery finish. Long, bitter finish. Medium body with an oily mouthfeel. Soft fizz. A solid IPA. Well rounded and very drinkable.

I'm a big fan of Easy Jack and Double Jack. Union Jack fits right in the middle. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

VinegarStroke (339) - Napa, California, USA - MAY 25, 2015
Bottle: Clear, light straw with copper tinge, good head and great lace. The aroma is dominated by malt with a touch of caramel supported by fresh hops. Clean and intense. The palate is dry to just off dry. Not sour but moderately high in bitterness. Very rich and malty. great mouthfeel. Well balanced. The malt profile certainly give an English twist to a West Coast IPA.

notayankee (35) - Arkansas, USA - MAY 25, 2015
Bottle pour into goblet. Aroma is nicely forward, with resin and citrus comin’ right at ya’, Appearance is a nice hazy amber, with a frothy, white foam head that dissipates quickly, leaves nice lacing that lingers. Taste has a light sweetness to it and decent bitterness. This beer has a clean slick feel to it, with soft carbonation. The bitterness and bit of sour taste lingers, but not too powerfully, kind of like I just ate a grapefruit. This is a very nice IPA with what I would call a good middle of the road ABV. Will enjoy again.

Garrold (2504) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 22, 2015
Can. Little Leeds Beer House. Clear, light amber. Thin, bubbly, blotchy, sticky, off white head. Fairly thick, dank pine. Sweet, dried orange. Some spicy malts. Overall, it’s tinned fruit, rather than fresh. There’s an initial sweetness, before turning fruity, resinous, oily bitter. Full bodied, with maybe a bit too much fizz. Finishes long, lingering, oily, pine resin bitter. Certainly packs a punch.

Pours a clear Amber orange with a small white head. Smells of tangerine, grapefruit hint of spruce. Taste is bitter and moderately sweet - spruce then citrus hops followed by a slight breadiness.
