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.

Huge billowy head lives up to the mug shot on the label. Very smooth, drinkable IPA. Very hoppy, grapefruit flavors in every sip. I am a IPA fan and this is definitely a well priced beer I will continue to consume. Nice amber color and finishes very nice. I like a little bitter kick at the end. This one won’t dissappoint!!!

Aromat: solidna chmielowa podstawa a nutami żywiczno- cytrusowymi i herbacianymi. Następnie słodowa słodycz i akcenty zbożowo - herbatniokowe i alkohol. Barwa: złota początkowo dosyć klarowna. Piana biała, drobno pęcherzykowa, umiarkowanej wielkości i podobnej trwałości. Smak: słodycz, podszyta kwaskowością, z solidną chmielową kontrą, która dominuje posmaki słodowe. Goryczka powyżej średniej, drażniąca i dosyć długa, ale nie zalegająca. Krągła pełnia, umiarkowane do wysokiego wysycenie i raczej wytrawny, alkoholowy finisz. Po chwili dochodzą lekkie posmaki miodowe, które sugerują utlenieni. Kolejne kultowe piwo, które nieco zawodzi. Wprawdzie nie dostrzegłem w nim większych wad, ale również nie wywarło większego wrażenia. Z pewnością nie jest warte 25 pln, które za nie zapłaciłem.

jercraigs (8289) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 21, 2015
2015-04-18. Nice orange body and white head. Aroma of resiny hops and citrus notes. Flavour is pleasantly bitter and hoppy, nice citrus melange with notes of orange and tangerines. Lingering bitterness and resin long into the finish. Average bodied palate, soft carbonation. Solid. Just a touch boozier than my preferance but rather good. On tap at Allen Burger Venture, Buffalo.

Aroma is citrus and pine hops mixed with a perfect amount of malt sweetness. Appearance is like most other IPAs, just slightly darker. Pillowy white head of foam. Taste is honey up front, followed by both types of hops described in the aroma. Hops are sharp, but never bitter. Aftertaste is slightly hoppy and refreshing. Palate is outstanding for the style, slick and full bodied. An unpretentious IPA that can be drunk right out of the bottle. FW really knocked it out of the park on this one. This is the best beer that I have tried from FW.

West coast IPA. Pacific Northwest hop aroma. Bitterness initially is puckering then mellows to hoppy lupine deliciousness.
