Modest head that settles to rim bubbles. Good ring lace. The color is dark gold/light amber and appears to be clear.

High hopped but not too much. A bit of fruit punch and a bit of grapefruit rind.

Sweeter start than I expected. Solid malt base which allows the strong hop bite to stand out in contrast. The body is a bit thin and the effervescence is elevated. Long aftertaste but it's decently balanced.

On tap at Hamilton's. A wet hop blend of 75% Double Jack and 25% Union Jack.

A: Yellow gold with a white head.

S: Tangerine, grass, pine, and a bread. Lightly herbal and floral.

T: Grassy and piney. This is surprisingly malty, with bread and light caramel notes. Moderately bitter with a little alcohol. Tangerine blends with grapefruit.

M: Medium body with matching carbonation.

Overall: I enjoyed this, but not as much as I enjoy Union Jack or newer batches of Double Jack.
