22 oz bottle from Pinocchios, Delaware Co. poured into a Duvel tulip. Beer was an orangish/amber body with a two-finger, off-white head, nice lacing and decent retention. Nose was grapefruit, pine, caramel. Taste was mildly bitter orange, floral, pineapple, grapefruit with a sweeter middle before being followed by a nice interplay between the sweetness, citrus and bitternes in the finish. Mouthfeel was smooth, medium in body and carbonation with a pleasing bitter bite to break up the sweetness. You notice the alcohol but would have no idea it was 9.5%. All-in-all a good DIPA I would not hesitate to try again. Thanks FW for coming to Philly!

pours a very clear gold with a finger of head.

smell is piny hops with some citrus notes.

taste starts off sweet with hints of molasses and grapefruit. finished with piny hops.

mouth is medium with low carbonation.

overall an OK DIPA but nothing super exciting.

Excited to try this, considering that Union Jack IPA is one of my favorite brews, and one of the best dollar for dollar values out there.

Pours a golden orange. 1-2 inches of white foam head that died quickly. Lots of bubbling, white gobs on side of glass.

Smells like bitter grapefruit, some pine, and a surprising amount of sweet pineapple-y malt. Interesting. Kind of a different aroma profile than the "regular" version. Not an improvement.

Taste is hop forward, with pine, grapefruit, pineapple and tropical/sweet citrus, but the malt once again is surprisingly predominant. And, unfortunately, it adds a grain-y, cereal-y sweetness to it. Slightly distracting. It's like they doubled the malt content, but only boosted the hop profile by a bit. Could use a bit more bubbling.

Interesting, glad I had a chance to try it, but I prefer the IPA version.
