Firestone Walker Union Jack 2020
What the brewers say
"Pineapple, citrus, and pine aromas with intense flavors of grapefruit and tangerine."
What our panel thought
Subdued aroma: pine resin, grapefruit peel, hay, bubblegum. Flavor starts moderately sweet—bread crust, light caramel—transitioning to moderately strong bitterness, clean and not harsh. Dry finish. Tastes traditional."
What our editors thought
"Caramel hints of West Coast, with berry and currant esters—spicy red fruit—and light citrus. On the sip, disciplined bitterness—polished, present, yet understated, smooth—with light berry and spruce-like fruity pine notes."
