I had enjoyed this beer many, many times on a vacation to Yosemite this summer, and was able to carry a few bottles back to enjoy at home, plus a trade brought a few more. Poured into a SN pint glass...
A - Poured a pale to medium amber color with an off white head that settled into a solid, heavy film layer. Medium lacing.
S - What hits me every time I enjoy a fresh Union Jack is the floral hop aroma. Not overly fruity and not too much pine, just a balanced floral hop smell with a touch of caramel malt.
T - Taste follows the nose. A perfect balance of floral hop bitterness and malty sweetness. IMO its perfect.
M - This suits my preference exactly...not too heavy (syrupy) and not too light (thin) . A medium creamy mouthfeel with excellent carbonation. Just right.
O - This is about as perfect of an IPA that I have had the privilege to enjoy. If you have the opportunity and are a fan of IPA's, this is one you definitely need to enjoy.

On tap at BC's Pizza and Beer
A: Pours a deep golden yellow with nice white head that fades and laces nicely
S: First thing I get is the malt sweetness, followed immediately by tropical and citrus hoppy goodness.
T: Big citrus hop kick, a little almost tropical fruit like notes in there, all well balanced by malt sweetness. There's a bit of grapefruit bitterness on the finish that hangs around.
M: Medium body, medium carbonation, very refreshing
O: I spend so much time trying new stuff that brews like this from right in my back yard often get ignored. Drinking them for the first time in a while is like sitting down with an old friend. Very tasty brew that hits the spot.
