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.

Love it. Crystal clear yellow-gold colored. Could use a little more of the citrus/perfume aroma. Maybe I’ll try a fresher bottle. The flavor is really well balanced between sweet malts and tasty hops. Smooth, strong and lasting bitter finish.

Can, can’t remember where from. Coppery amber colour. Quite a full bodied IPA, very west coast with pine and citrus, quite bitter, medium finish. Pretty solid stuff - I always get confused by these guys with their British names for stuff that have nothing to do with the UK...

Impressive head and creaminess even from a can. Bright and inviting citrus grassy hops. Very lively entry with sustained citrus hop oils throughout. Tender toffee citrusy malt body, balanced bitterness. Very well crafted.

Bottle at Pub on Passyunk East. Hard to believe I haven’t rated this one yet. Aroma has hop citrus characteristics and maybe a mild hit of pine resin. Taste is full and relatively complex for an IPA. Pine, citrus (orange, grapefruit, peach) are prevalent. Mouthfeel is full and rich. Almost a bready/chewy characteristic. This is a really awesome go to IPA to stock in the fridge. Recommended.
