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

Bottle: Poured a gold/amber color with a large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of citrus and floral hoppy notes is really enjoyable with light sweet undertones. Taste is also dominated by sweet notes with nice floral hoppy notes and some citrus undertones with limited bitterness. Body is about average with good carbonation. Well brewed with great drinkability factor and limited bitterness level.

Firestone Walker Brewing Co. - Union Jack India Pale Ale - 12fl oz bottle

Look - Pours a golden amber with a full foamy head. Good sticky lacing around the glass. Minimal carbonation. Good looking brew.

Smell - Bready malts with deep resinous hops over it, a bit low-key here.

Taste - Malts are quickly subdued by bitter piney/resinous hops.

Mouthfeel - Mouthfeel is a dry bitter pine, not much else to it, a bit one-dimensional to be honest. Drinkable throughout, which is good.

Overall - Not bad, but I was not impressed overall. I think this brew is a bit overrated, but everyone has their own tastes. Firestone Walker does make amazing brew though, I highly recommend Firestone Walker - Double Jack if you want to be blown away by a good brew.
