A - Pours a golden amber with an orange tint. Two fingers of white fluffy head that clings and laces after every drink. Superb Retention throughout.

S - Citrus hops, zest, resinous, fruity, oak, malts, grains.

T - Hop forward - citrusy, fruity, resinous, toasted grains, malts. Well balanced. Drinks smooth and finishes clean. Really a nice mouth feel to this.

O - This is a no doubter home run IPA. This could be a go to IPA for me if it were readily available in Michigan. Good depth with many different nuances.

Notes - Thanks to my wife for picking these up at Binny's in Schaumberg while at a PA conference.

Firestone Walker Union Jack IPA

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a shaker pint. Served chilled...

A) Clean and clear golden amber. Not much head... Settles quickly to a collar. Decent lacing...

S) Lemon rind shavings, grass and some saltine cracker. A refreshing scent with a little sweet flower petal.

T) Near the nose... Good malt backbone with a slightly zesty finish that let's a little of the 7.5% ABV poke it's head out.

M) Solid medium body with softer carbonation. Dry finish that is bitter, but doesn't linger.

O) Very nice brew... I would like to try more from this brewery. Glad to recommend...
