LtDan (1784) - Los Angeles County, California, USA - MAR 22, 2013
22 oz. bottle
Appearance: Pours a dark hazy amber with an active light tan film of suds.

Aroma: A good amount of piny and grapefruit hops, bready and brown sugar malts.

Taste: Big agressive hops. Dry bready malt, grapefruit and piny flavors. Finishes with long bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, lively carbonation,a little scratchy.

Overall: This beer fits perfectly in the middle of beers like Arrogant Bastard Ale and Ballast Point Tongue Buckler. Another fine offering in Bootlegger’s fresh hoppy lineup, and probably the most bitter of the bunch.
