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.

Bottle . A nice orange amber body with a slightly off-white head that had good retention and nice lace. Aroma had a strong pine hop profile which was complemented by nice citrus notes. Good caramel malt base. Flavor had a good hop presence. Mostly resinous with some grapefruit and even floral notes. Caramel malts were merely a balancing act to sweeten the beer. It was just enough to take a little away from the hops with the hops losing its assertiveness. Dry in the finish. Good!

Torrefacto (651) - Madrid, SPAIN - DEC 17, 2014
Color ámbar limpio con espuma blanca. Aromas de miel, melocotón, mango, cítrico y pino. Cuerpo denso y sedoso con un inicio dulce de fruta madura y miel, al que sigue un amargor intenso y muy vivo de carácter resinoso seco. Muy rica.

abemorsten (2895) - Mosterøy, NORWAY - DEC 16, 2014
Small bottle from CITTI Markt, Flensburg. Misty golden body with a medium sized gelatinous tanned head that leaves good looking laces on the glass wall. Orange marmelade, tropical fruits and toffee on the nose. Medium to full bodied and well carbonated. Bittersweet and aromatic with plenty of tropical notes and an intense orange peel bitterness that lasts. Enjoyable.

Keg @ Citizen Burger. Shocked I’ve never rated this! #4900. Light amber pour with a small white head. Nose is bright, fresh and inviting. Some grapefruit meat and a blast of PNW hops. Soft honey. Flavor is crisp and agile. More citrus, light pine. Melon. Soft mineral, some chalk. Light caramel and a bit of toast. Clean, lightly bitter finish. Mild medium body with active carbonation. Great stuff.

Tried it today. Very fruity aroma and taste. Grapefruit, orange peel, slightly malty. Pleasing aftertaste with a nice bitterness.

gunnar (5656) - Sandnes, NORWAY - DEC 10, 2014
Bottle from a trade with Douberd. Pours clear golden with a big creamy white head. Aroma is malty with powerful fruity hops alongside, also resiny and piney hops. Taste is powerful light sweet malty, with an explotion of crisp fresh hops on my tongue, lingering bittersweet fruity, nice one.

snoworsummer (2438) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - NOV 23, 2014
From a bottle. Tastes very hoppy, nutty, like sweet orange citrus, bready malt. Light/medium body and low carbonation. Smells like sweet bready malt, sweet orange citrus hops, dry pine, and sweet grapefruit. Clear gold with a fizzy white head.
