The appearance has moderate amber hue. The taste is much more pronounced than the smell. Union Jack is fruity but very drinkable. I am not an expert on what fruit flavor there is but the fruitiness is stronger than the hops but not too much. The only thing that is comparably tastier is Firestone Double Jack.

12 oz bottle, stamped 8/01/13

fairly clear golden color, bone-white head. fruity aroma - grapefruit, orange, melon - very pleasant. tastes is dominated by slightly bitter hops - fruity citrus flavors. mild malt. tasty. medium body and carbonation, a bit oily mouthfeel. overall a nice IPA with great flavors.
