If I can’t have the Double Jack I might as well grab a sixer of Union Jack. Finishes with more of a hoppy taste than the double

On tap at Z tejas, Austin. Slightly hazy bright orange pour with a small white head that recedes to a ring. Nose is lots of pine and citrus and grass. Great bitterness from start to long dry finish with a good supporting malt background.

weaselkenievil (1606) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - MAY 5, 2014
Bottle thanks to wyzzywyz22. Poured a clear orange gold with a thin white head. Aroma is nice and hoppy, tangerine, orange, some pepper. Flavour is more hoppy IPA awesomeness. Medium malts, heavy hops, just how I like it. A pretty damn special beer.

JanLaursen (2985) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 29, 2014
Flaske, 355 cl. Ravgylden med et holdbart hvidt skum. Forholdsvis maltet næse. Masser af karamel. Men også ret krydrede, vegetale humlenoter. Hash. (Over)moden papaya. Grapefrugt. Velbalanceret. Fyldig krop - god IPA
