From the brewer

An aggressively hopped West Coast-style IPA. Union Jack showcases exceptional dry hop character with stunning pineapple, citrus and piney aromas on the nose accompanied by honey-like malt aromatics. Double dry hopping brings bold grapefruit, tangerine and citrus flavors that are contrasted by pale malt sweetness to balance this intense brew. A true tribute to the style that put the West Coast on the craft beer map.

Citrus and pine smell, grapefruit/resinous on the palate, slightly bitter finish

Very tasty! Smooth IPA with a perfect hint of citrus.
Fragrant & slightly more resinous than I'd like but without getting too far in any direction. The finish has a touch of malt and is nicely balanced but too bitter to be a favorite for me.
Smells clean. Tasty malts. Bitterness is low but present to be enjoyed, lingers well. Good enough I don't need to be in an "IPA mood" to enjoy it.
Not overwhelmingly hoppy, just right.
