Poured from bottle into a pint glass

Appearance – The beer pours a beautiful crystal clear orange amber color with tons of big carbonation bubbles initially seen streaming up through the body of the brew getting enveloped in the one finger white head. The large carbonation bubbles quickly fade from view with all the while the white head fading to leave a decent level of lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell - The smell is big of a sweeter grapefruit hop aroma. A ruby red grapefruit and tangerine aroma combine producing a hoppy and sweeter citrus smell overall. These are not the only aromas however and are joined by some lighter pine and herbal hop smells as well as a nice tropical fruit smell of pineapple and papaya.

Taste – The taste begins very big of malt and sweeter fruit flavors as well as a nice grapefruit hop taste. The fruit flavors are mainly of a tangerine and pineapple flavor initially, but as the taste advances some flavors of a slightly sour lemon come to the tongue mellowing out the fruit sweetness more toward the end of the taste. While the sweeter fruit lightens, the taste still remains relatively sweet as some caramel flavors come to the tongue in the middle of the flavor profile. Toward the end of the taste the grapefruit picks up in intensity and is joined by some pine hop flavors as well, with the combination of flavors leaving a nice moderately resinous and grapefruit bitter but still somewhat fruity and sweet flavor to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is thick and smooth with a carbonation level that is on the slightly lower side. The thick and chewy body as well as lower carbonation are fantastic for the combination of sweet citrus fruit as well as citrus hop flavors, bringing them to the forefront on the tongue.

Overall – A very enjoyable and smooth tasting double IPA that hides the 9.5 % abv very well. It has a nice blend of citrus hop and sweet fruit flavors but also has enough balance via the pine, caramel and malt flavors to produce very easy drinking and robust tasting IPA.

This imperial ipa is very very refreshing, crisp, and tasty. A must try and frequently purchased bomber. The color is solid, smell is typical for an imperial ipa. The adds to the success of the Union Jack, which is arguably one of the best ipa's.

bomber into a pint glass.
pours a beautiful copper orange with about a 1/2 inch head.
smell is very citrusy.
taste is little sweet with a slightly bitter aftertaste. citrus notes definitely present.
not too much carbonation and the abv is very well hidden.
easy to drink double ipa. very tasty although its not my favorite take on the style.
worth a try for sure.
