look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

a) copper color, redish yellow. good head at first with medium retention. pretty bubbly and inviting looking

s) smells like hops, strong, some pine scents

t) strong bite of hops up front but very balanced with the malt and super smooth finish. i can't taste the 7.5% alcohol either

m) kinda doughy in the mouth and definitely bubbly

o) a great beer. i was expecting more of a hoppy taste, but i'm not let down at all. it is hoppy and super well balanced so all the flavors blend very well together.

Firestone Walker Union Jack is a delicious IPA. Fresh and tangy citrus flavours. It's delicious! I am going to buy lots of this during the summer

A: Orange colour and a 3 mm head that fades pretty quick. 3.5

S: Big juicy citrus aroma. Amazing! 5

T: Malty with some lovely tangy grapefruit hoppiness. Clean finish. Delicious! 4.5

M: Pretty low carbonation for an IPA. 4

O: 4.5

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

A - Looks like a typical IPA. Bright, clear amber orange. Large, slightly yellow head that stays around and laces nicely.

S - A hoppy, grapefruit smell. Not too strong.

T - A bold, delicious taste. Bitter, piney and slightly fruity hops that balance beautifully with a surprisingly strong, sweet malt backbone. A little like candy. The similarly bittersweet aftertaste lingers pleasantly.

M - Crisp, nicely carbonated

O - A highly drinkable, malty and enjoyable IPA.
