A - Nice dark amber color with clean off-white foam head

S - Very hoppy up front with a strong sweet malt finish

T - Interestingly full flavored IPA. Nice sweat and hoppy

M - A little thick feeling for style, but not so much that it detracts from scent/taste

O - A good Firestone IPA. Would certainly enjoy again and try other offerings from FIrestone Walker. Prost.

Tonight I'm tasting this against Firestone Walker's Double Jack and New Belgium's Rampart. I've had all these before, and Rampart is my go-to IPA, but I am in pursuit of the perfect IPA.

In the glass, Union Jack and Double Jack are indistinguishable by appearance. Both are dark amber colored with a nice finger thick head, but that's where the similarity ends. Union Jack is more lemony tasting, not as well balanced and with a more bitter aftertaste than either of the other two. It's a decent IPA, but not in my top 20
