Firestone Walker Union Jack IPA

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a shaker pint. Served chilled...

A) Clean and clear golden amber. Not much head... Settles quickly to a collar. Decent lacing...

S) Lemon rind shavings, grass and some saltine cracker. A refreshing scent with a little sweet flower petal.

T) Near the nose... Good malt backbone with a slightly zesty finish that let's a little of the 7.5% ABV poke it's head out.

M) Solid medium body with softer carbonation. Dry finish that is bitter, but doesn't linger.

O) Very nice brew... I would like to try more from this brewery. Glad to recommend...

12 oz bottle. Pours deep golden with tall, long lasting, fluffy white head and nice lacing. Aroma is of citrusy, piney hops, bready malt, some ripe fruit and caramel. Body is medium and almost smooth. Herbal hops, bready malt, caramel and ripe pears fill the mouth. Finish is long and dry. Delicious brew.
