rejtable (2206) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 26, 2012
Bottle. Pours orange with a big frothy head that dissipates to a light covering and some lacing. Big bitter and citrusy hops up front. Middle is a nice malty balance, and the finish is very bitter. Medium carbonation and medium body in the mouth. Great WC IPA.

I probably don’t give IPA’s their fair due. I prefer a less subtle and more earthy bitterness. When I detect grapefruit, I am off-put. The finish once the citrus quickly recedes is satisfying. Good brewery. This beer is not a "99"er, however.

tpb3jd (46) - University Place, Washington, USA - APR 21, 2012
In a bottle from Safeway, University Place, WA: Hop forward in taste and scent. The aroma is sweetly grassy with citrus notes and a bit of dankness. This matches the taste: a bitter, dankly hoppy beer that has a full body and a strong aftertaste, but not a bad aftertaste. Union Jack has a golden, lager-like appearance with a fizzy head. Overall, a trusted, frequently turned to beer, good with steak or a rich chili.
