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.

Incredibly well-balanced IPA. Cudos to Zio Aldo for getting this one in my hands. Lovely orange to amber hue with a nice head. Pine, resin, grapefruit all there. Bitter and lingering finish. Awesome.

Fantastic IPA. Wonderful bitter, hop flavors with pine and fruit characters as well. A measuring stick for all IPAs.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - JUN 12, 2012
Pours a deep, rich cheddar orange with a nose of malty but fruity grapefruit, orange peel, and a touch of pine. Very bitter English-esque quality to the melding of ingredients, with hints of grapefruit, orange, biscuit, and a little grassy pine in the finish. Decent mouthfeel. Seems to be a worthy tribute to a classic English IPA.

Changed (462) - Ithaca, New York, USA - JUN 6, 2012
12 oz bottle from Ithaca Coffee Company. Pours quite light for a beer of this magnitude. Little white head, little lacing, quite carbonated. Aroma is a ridiculous amount of hops. I think the only beer that Iíve smelled that was so overwhelmingly hops was Hop Stoopid or Palate Wrecker; but, those beers donít come close to this. Taste wise, this thing is grapefruit, citrus hops, amazingly smooth and not extremely bitter on the end for a 7.5%. Just an absolutely fantastic beer!

On draft. Nice golden pour. Hoppy aroma with a little pine end citrus. Taste is simply awesome. Hoppy with a good malty finish. One of the best of the style (IPAs) out there, if not the best.
