Copper colored in hue and crystal clear, there wasn't much of a head but what was there left decent lacing. While this isn't a tropical assault on the nostrils when taking in the aroma, there are most certainly some piney grapefruit and naval orange peel overtones in there amongst the malt backdrop..

Over the palate Union Jack dances gracefully with some subtle citrus that you pick up in the nose, carbonation that does this IPA justice, some oily resins that are present, and there is a pleasant and relatively long lasting aftertaste. There is a delightful light graham cracker flavor mixed with the hoppiness of this IPA that makes Union Jack vey appealing. The malt bill is rather steep but not unlike otherers in the AIPA style.

A well balanced IPA and a rewarding choice especially at the price point,but the malt content is a bit high for true hop bomb lovers.Double Jack gets it done for real hop hounds.
