I am going from notes I took at the Union Brewhouse on Palm Sunday. I got the scoop that this beer log was getting tapped and that I should grab a glass. The beer was poured into a goblet.
Appearance: orange/amber/copper with a slight head. There was a little bit of carbonation coming up the glass.
Smell: pineapple, other citurs flavors, some resiny and piney aroma.
Taste: grapefruit, pine, some sweet malts and slight bitterness
Mouthfeel: slight carbonation, tasty and delicious
Overall: This fits well with the West Coast Double IPA's. Very drinkable and the alcohol is not that noticeable. Not sure when I will see this one again, but will order another glass when or bottle if I have the chance.
Serving type: on-tap

Simply the best double IPA you will ever have. MASSIVE candied fruits. Think those dried pineapples that are chewy and delicious. Orange, tangerine. Sweet grapefruit. Hop bitterness in my opinion is more reserved than its union jack younger brother, but still a nice hit of hops. This beer is absolutely fantastic.

Cloudy off yellow pour with thin white head. Smell is grapefruit, alcohol, pine. Taste is hoppy and citrus, balances really well, not over the top bitter. Mouthfeel is smooth with heat from the alcohol at the end.
Overall, excellent beer. Love the heat that comes in at the end very nice little burn. Much more balanced than other Dbl IPAs. This was bottled on 10-25-13 would love to taste a fresh one.
