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.

From bottle. Bottled 1/28/13. Nice fresh hop aroma. Pours medium gold with almost no head. Tastes more like a Midwest IPA, kind of close to the Bells and Founders models. Incredibly yummy and affordable. Amazing citrus hop aroma with gold malt balance an a nice spice and bitterness at the end of the taste. Medium light body. Would love to have this on the shelf on a regular basis along with my favorite Two Hearted. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

35cl bottle at home. Clear amber pour with a thin white head. Grapefruit, oranges, lemon zest, caramel. Smooth texture and a sticky bitter-sweet aftertaste.

Pours clear, golden and amberish at the same time. Fruity and piney hop aroma, decent West Coast feel to it. Hops are strong also in the taste but everything is nicely balanced with the body. Sweetish body but hidden with hops. Actually very clean and just perfectly executed IPA, sort of like an etalon for the style. Will definitely drink it again, maybe even a lot.

Can from Deguchiya. Pours a golden copper with a finger of foam. Ruby red grapefruit and orange drive the nose with a light bit of mango as it warms. Well-balanced, caramel, biscuit, piney bitterness. Overly bitter on the finish and becomes a little much. A classic West-Coast IPA with balance though.

I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.

Eructoblaster (3656) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 17, 2016
On tap at Brand’s Steakhouse (Las Vegas, NV). Amber/golden body with a thin, white foamy/creamy head. Bold hoppy aroma with herbal and piney hints. Its sharp hoppy taste carries woody and herbal notes. Ends with a long bitter finish. Half way between an IPA and a DIPA.

Tap at Keyaki. Nice. Caramel, light hoppiness, bit of resin. Good stuff. Joint favourite of the set.

Draught at Keyaki. Decent stuff but the caramel malt somewhat seems to dominate the citrus and pine hops, fairly dry finish with light boozy notes. Not overly impressed but may revisit in better conditions.

355ml bottle at home. Clear golden with a medium white soapy head. Light to medium body with low to moderate carbonation. Quite bitter with nice fruity sweetness. Citrus, grapefruit, tropical fruits, malts and caramel. Very good IPA.

Bottle - Clear golden color, nice head. This is not a very fruity IPA, nevertheless it provides a unique aroma experience. Very well balanced. Of course the hoppy aromas are evident but it is the very long lasting bitter-hoppy ending, what makes this beer so great.
