Firestone Union Jack
I just thought I'd make a post in honor of this beer....This is some good freakin beer. Aroma hops up the wazoo. Anyone out there also enjoyed this beer? It was released about two or three months ago. I don't know if it gets shipped out of California. Anyone got any ideas on a recipe? I taste a LOT amarillo in there. Its just so good. Three of them down and now I'm here making this rambling post.....:cross:

No one has tried this??? If you haven't you are really missing out :)

I haven't seen it up here but I don't to a lot of liquor stores lately due to the better quality of my brews and kegging.

Firestone makes good beer though so I am not surprised. I'm thinking with the Union Jack name it might be based on British hops.

I have heard of Firestone, but never tried it. And no, I don't believe they ship out of Cali.

i have had it and it is rediculous. Hop bomb but not super bitter. Excellent!!!!!

I've seen it at the store, but I haven't picked any up yet. It's on my list.

Yeah, I think I will buy some if I see it.

Yup, it's a good 'un. Excellent hop aroma...my guess is either amarillo or nugget.

Not sure why it's listing for $10 a sixer, though. But Bev Mo had it marked down to $7, so it came home with me.

FW website lists it as 72 IBU's. Sounds yummy. I see BevMo has the sixers for $6.99. Guess I know where I'm headed after work.

I have only tried the double barrel ale. Pretty tasty too if you haven't had it. -Dirk
