Hanuta06 (466) - Washington, USA - JAN 24, 2013
Serving: from bottle--purchased at The Beer Junction. Aroma: moderate to heavily hoppy with piney overtones. Appearance: average-sized, rocky, off-white, initial head with mostly diminishing longevity and good lacing. Sparkling, light-amber body. Taste: moderately bitter initial flavor and moderate to heavily bitter finish with average duration. Palate: medium bodied with dry texture and soft carbonation. Overall: not bad but nothing memorable besides the aroma.

Towey1989 (2360) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 14, 2017
Bottle at The Bottle Lab, Leek. Pours a clear pale amber colour with a frothy white head. Aroma of pine, orange, certain medicinal qualities, some lemon, a little grapefruit, a hint of red fruit, toasted malts, slight caramel and subtle grassy, herbal hops. Taste of orange, grapefruit, resin, some lemon, perfume, a little herbs, a hint of red berries, toasted malts, a touch of caramel and slight grassy, herbal hops. Medium bodied and an oily texture. A dry, resinous, grassy, herbal hop bitterness in the finish. With a name like Union Jack IPA it should be British styled with British hops but as an American hopped IPA this is great. Pungent citrus, resinous and grassy hops with a roasted malts and subtley fruited, malty balance. Great IPA, up there with the big boys of American brewing.
