Pours a nice gold color with good lacing. Smells of piney hops and tastes the same. A good beer, but nothing to write home about.

Golden with white head. Big juicy fruity nose of citrus, mango and pineapple. Malty start followed with big citrus and tropical fruit flavors. Some hop bitterness in finish. Fantastic brew!

Really good. Bottle from Vince. Golden color, nice citrusy hops, plenty of them. Best of the 3 IPA's I had today. Their double jack is even better.

I’m a big fan of Firestone Walker Double Jack and I would consider Union Jack a lighter version of that. This is a good thing, since Double Jack is a DIPA, I like having an option to give up some ABV without losing the flavor.

From the tap in to a pint glass at Links Taproom, Chicago. Pours a very clear yellowish orange color, with a thick white head that leaves a lot of lacing. Aroma brings pine, grass, wheat. Tastes of lime up front moldy bubblegum in the middle, and sweet grass on the finnish. Mouth feel is very tingly. Wouldn’t be my 1st choice of an IPA, but a solid one.

Bottle. Pours clear gold with quickly diminishing white head, minimal lace. Aroma is piney, floral, citrus hops, with a sweet, nutty malty background. Flavor is strong citrus, spruce hops, mildly bitter, with a resinous hop and malty finish. Moderate carbonation, medium body, crisp texture.
