I'm a big fan of Easy Jack and Double Jack. Union Jack fits right in the middle.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Clear, light straw with copper tinge, good head and great lace. The aroma is dominated by malt with a touch of caramel supported by fresh hops. Clean and intense. The palate is dry to just off dry. Not sour but moderately high in bitterness. Very rich and malty. great mouthfeel.
Well balanced. The malt profile certainly give an English twist to a West Coast IPA.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle pour into goblet. Aroma is nicely forward, with resin and citrus comin’ right at ya’, Appearance is a nice hazy amber, with a frothy, white foam head that dissipates quickly, leaves nice lacing that lingers. Taste has a light sweetness to it and decent bitterness. This beer has a clean slick feel to it, with soft carbonation. The bitterness and bit of sour taste lingers, but not too powerfully, kind of like I just ate a grapefruit. This is a very nice IPA with what I would call a good middle of the road ABV. Will enjoy again.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can. Little Leeds Beer House. Clear, light amber. Thin, bubbly, blotchy, sticky, off white head. Fairly thick, dank pine. Sweet, dried orange. Some spicy malts. Overall, it’s tinned fruit, rather than fresh. There’s an initial sweetness, before turning fruity, resinous, oily bitter. Full bodied, with maybe a bit too much fizz. Finishes long, lingering, oily, pine resin bitter. Certainly packs a punch.
