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.

High levels of cascade hops, especially added late boil......balanced by a few less dominating hops for flavor. Very good tasting, and lasting hop body. I like this.

From a bottle. Delicous but maltier than expected, hard to tell when we get a bottle that has travelled half the world if that’s what they intended.

An excellent balance of malt and citrusy hops, smoothe to the palate, and immensely drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Deep gold with an off-white head. Citrus and pine aroma and flavor. Malty up front with a long bitter finish. Medium to full bodied. A nice aggressive IPA

Golden, slightly amber apparence. Aroma fruity, hoppy. Full bodied, with a perfect balance between fruity sweetness and a marked bitter ending. Excellent, classic west coast IPA.

Just getting into IPA style beers and I’m glad I started with this one. Nose is sweet grape fruit, tropical fruit and a bit of floral. Taste is a good kick of grapefruit and tangerine with enough malt to balance it out nicely. Finish is slightly bitter but not too aggressive. Just a tad dry finish but not overwhelming. Tastes like a pale 31 on steroids. Really enjoyed this one.

Nice classic hops smell. Pours golden orange with a white fast dissipating head. Nice tastes of citrus and pine. Medium biting sour finish. Basic mouth feel and medium carbonation. Like all Firestones its a solid effort and a balanced fine example of the style. Dependable.

Pours dark orange with medium head. Aroma: citrus, pine and a bit of grass. Taste: pine dominates, followed by citrus and some tropical fruit. Dry, nice hoppy palate.

355 ML bottle clear orange amber, white head that falls away quick. Good spotty lacing. Nose is pine, grapefruit and citrus. Malt body is clean, crisp and vibrant. A touch mineral but that is OK. Straightforward grapefruit and pine. Clean and easy to drink. Clean malt body. no hint of AVB. Solid and classic West Coast.
