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.

Pours a deep golden orange. Aroma is a lot of citrus and pine, very strong. Taste is surprisingly bitter for an IPA listed at 70 IBUs, definitely hoppier than most IPAs I’ve tried. There is a lingering sweetness from the malt, but it still has a very light body. The bitterness really sticks around for a while and reminds me of 3 Floyds, not afraid of hops. Definitely a great IPA I would go back to, which is saying something considering how over saturated the style is.

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.

Garrold (2340) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 22, 2015
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.

Bottle. A very fruity aroma, very sweet smell of lemonade. The head is small, white and foamy with a short duration. The body is pale red. A very bitter taste, light fruity with a long finish. The body is light, very dry and creamy with a lively carbonation.

Great aroma of citrus and floral hops, as well as a subtle "alcohol" smell. It had a nice clear amber color. Taste was a mostly balanced bitterness with a subtle grapefruit flavor.

jaszymku (112) - POLAND - MAY 8, 2015
Klarowne złote, średnie nagazowanie, piana ładna, osadza się ale krótkotrwała. Aromat głównie estry, chmiele tak tylko nuta w tle. Smak idealnie zbalansowana wytrawna IPA, bez wyskoków, ale nagazowanie w punkt. Przyjemne.
