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.

Draft. Deep amber-gold, completely translucent and capped with a fizzy white head. The aroma, as you would expect from a beer thatís been double dry-hopped, is bright -- grass, pineapple, guava, tangerine, a touch of mint. The flavor adds grapefruit to the mix, the fruitís bitter juice and peel balancing the sweeter tropic tones of the hops. Honey-like maltiness plays off the resinous blend and adds apricot notes. I learned today that this beer won back-to-back GABF golds in 2008 and 2009; itís easy to see how.

Light orange colour, white head. Aroma of caramel, light tropical fruit, peaches. Taste is light to medium bitter, a bit sweet. Light to medium body, slick texture, soft to average carbonation. Very nice and hoppy.

From the can. Easy drinking IPA. Not outstanding, but definitely chuggable. Sweet malt, light hops, sticky, somewhat thin, and not detection of alcohol. Overall, not a bad IPA. Would recommend to others.

Had this in a 12oz bottle, date 12/10/14, today, from the House of 1000. Very hoppy, floral hop flavor makes it easy to drink, all of the jack IPA family are well recieved, when available in the Pittsburgh area

penstemon (192) - Nevada, USA - MAR 20, 2015
Pours light orange-gold with a frothy white head. Aroma is all kinds of citrus (grapefruit, orange, lemonade), peach, pineapple, and light malt. Taste is grapefruit, lemon, orange, slight stone fruit, pepper, cracker, and an interesting minty note on the end. Medium bitterness. Smooth carb, medium body, slight lingering herbal bitterness, finishes on the dry side. Overall a great IPA, one of my favorites.
