look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

The appearance has moderate amber hue. The taste is much more pronounced than the smell. Union Jack is fruity but very drinkable. I am not an expert on what fruit flavor there is but the fruitiness is stronger than the hops but not too much. The only thing that is comparably tastier is Firestone Double Jack.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

12 oz bottle (4-18-12)

A- Pours a translucent copper with one finger white head. Nice lacing.

S- Smell is big citrus with some bready malt.

T- Big citrus grapefruit nicely balanced with a malt backbone.

M- Nice medium mouthfeel with a lingering bitterness on the tongue.

O- A very solid IPA that verges onto the DIPA spectrum. Found in many supermarkets in the NW, this is a solid go to.
