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.

Hopmaestro (110) - Örebro, SWEDEN - OCT 29, 2014
Superfresh bomber bottle imported by a friend. Aroma is bang on target. Citrus and orange peels, pine and a solid malt aura. The taste is beautiful. Medium sweet from tangerines, bitter from grapefruit and a slight slight underlying bread tone. Pretty dry finish. Solid IPA.

Draught keg at Craft in Covent Garden. A wet grass hop aroma, lots of rounded juicy effects in the mouth and a herbal bitter finish. Great palate-cleanser / easy drinker.

12 oz bottle. Pours a cloudy orange with a one-finger bright white head that leaves a lot of lacing. Aroma of grapefruit, orange, pine and dough. Taste is huge on the grapefruit and pine up front with a great caramel malt base behind it. Very crisp. Long finish of citrus and caramel malt. Medium bodied, smooth texture, lively carbonation. Great IPA! Definitely a gold standard for West Coast IPAs.

Bottle sampled @ Firestone Walker Tasting. Thank you! BBF 27/06/2015. This one is a bit older now. Golden, creamy white. Nose is hops, yeast, citrus, honey. Taste is citrus, grass, hay, light honey, light bitterness, touch grapefruit. Light honey body; Okayish but probably too old, weakened.

hank37 (82) - banksia grove, AUSTRALIA - OCT 16, 2014
Bottle from Mane liquor. Pours a bright, cloudy golden with a white head that dissipates quite quickly but provides good lacing. First smell is grassy, yeast driven aromas alongside some woody notes. Malty roasty cooking flavours and an almost overbearing booziness. Bitterness is hard to describe and doesn’t seem to fit the mould of an ipa.....maybe my tongue is fucked from too many hope forward beers.. i dunno, but this is heavy in the maltiness balance
