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.

Bomber from Lone Hill Liquor in CA that made the trip back with me to WI. Pours a clear dark gold with a thin layer of white head and good lacing. Smells like citrus and caramel with floral notes. Tastes of grapefruit, resin, and a nice caramel malt balance with that nice bitter resiny hop hanging in the back of your throat. Excellent IPA.

Bottle poured into a tulip glass. Clear golden color with thin white head. Great aroma of citrus hops. Tastes like it smells. Very refreshing, perfectly balanced IPA. This is a dangerously easy beer to drink. My favorite IPA. Another classic from the west coast.

Very good American IPA. Well balanced with citrus notes and nice bitter finish. Some soapiness, but I’ll have another.

Decent beer, not sure its the 99 it has. Fresh in a Growler, going to revisit it in a little bit to decide again. Overall though its freaking good.

Pours an honey amber color with burnished orange highlites. Held up to bright light light shows off it’s clarity and brilliancy. A tall off white head lingers for quite a while leaving nice lacing around the glass. It’s exceptionally well carbonated. Aroma is of an abundance of sweet malts, but the sutle hops are the big draw here with plenty of hop aromas of grapefruit and floral. The hops are bright and fresh. A great tasting beer here with plenty of hop flavor and light on the hop bitterness. You can pick out grapefruit and fruity/floral notes plus faint spicy hops. Malts are light with a hint of toasted malts. Finishing up, is a soft warming alcohol presence. This medium body ale is a great example of an IPA. Bright and flavorful easy drinking without being overly bitter. Definitly well worth the effort of finding.

On draught at some NYC pub that we stopped in because we had to pee.

Pours a deep golden color with a small well retained head.

The aroma is resiny and has some nice melon and orange rind fruitiness.

The flavor is lots of fresh hops, a little grapey, a little grape-fruity, a good bit of citrus and melon. Just a ton of those fruit forward hops. The beer is pretty high in bitterness which is always nice alongside those fruity hops.

Draft at The Long Room. Wow, I’ve had this so many times and I’ve. Eer rated it? Pours a copper body with nice white lacing. Aroma is fresh pine, bitter citrus and light soap. Mouthfeel is crisp and refreshing with notes of bitter grapefruit, pine and some other dry citrus flavors.
