Through our usual devilry, we have managed to get bottles of the 2008 Great American Beer Festival Gold Medal winner in the IPA category, Firestone Walker's Union Jack IPA. The official brewery description:
"The newest member of the Firestone family, Union Jack is the aggressive IPA that you’ve been searching for. Citrus, pineapple, and a full chewy malt profile finish clean on your palate. Over 70 IBUs and 7.5% alcohol by volume, Union Jack won’t have any problem competing with the big India Pale Ales. A beer true to its origins; deeply hopped and bolstered for a long voyage."
We're charging $14 for a big 22-ounce bottle, which is plenty for two (or more) people. We only got a case, so as usual you should do your best to come by soon and taste some Paso Robles goodness.
