On tap at the dive bar for beer week. Aroma is pretty typical for a pale ale. Flavour is more on the hoppy side. This is a really good pale, but I wouldn’t expect anything less from Firestone Walker.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
From notes. First reviewed 7/22/2010. Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a pint glass.
From the bottle, Union Jack pours a transparent light copper color with a medium white head. Decent retention, and some sticky lace.
Strong piney hops, with some citrusy notes in the nose as well. Weaker caramel malt exists as an afterthought.
The taste starts with a soft, slightly biscuity caramel malt. The piney hops take control, but there is a nice blend with grapefruit and apricot hops. Finishes quite bitter, although there is not much aftertaste.
It has a quite crisp carbonated feel. The tight bubbles help to raise the hop oil off the tongue. On the light side of a medium body.
I found this to be very easy to drink; quite a hoppy brew, and with such smoothness this goes down extremely easily.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
2 dimensional IPA. Very hoppy, malt is fine but its lost in the hops as usual for an IPA. The aroma is nice, and its actually slightly refreshing (unlike most dry, bitter IPAs). Just not my cup of tea i guess... Passable IPA. Doublejack is almost too good to compete with.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Refrigerated bottle poured into a shaker. Pours clear golden with two finger fluffy bright white head that dissapates quickly. Some lacing, medium body, resinous texture, and aroma is pine. Taste is lots of pine, a little grapefruit, and a bitter hop finish. Not one of the better IPAs I have had, too much pine.

Appearance: clear, deep gold color, frothy white head. Aroma: beautiful mix of grapefruit citrus and pine. Taste: floral, almost jasmine tea taste, light honey, finishes smooth hoppy bitterness. Mouthfeel: medium thin body, slick & creamy. Overall: pretty awesome. Not quite the Double Jack but delicious in it’s own way. Really top notch!
