Tobin’s Review 2.5 out of 5
Firestone Walker’s Union Jack IPA has a light amber hue with a nice head that turns a little frothy. The beer has sweet aromas with a bit of malt on the nose. The beer is pretty good when you are drinking it, but when you stop it turns very bitter and puckers your mouth up.
