3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
22oz bottle (no date) pours clear golden orange with 2 finger foamy head. Classic west coast profile with nice resinous pine and crisp floral citrus on the nose. Taste has a touch more honey-malt on the backend, though still enough pleasant grassy orange, pineapple, pine, and resin to keep it interesting. Finishes with high bitterness, toast malt, honey, pine, citrus. Bought from a gas station and there’s no date so assuming it’s not very fresh, it’s held up quite well. I can drink this.

Pours a golden orange color with a fruit and floral aroma. Taste is passion fruit and a nice hop flavor. A little bitter in the aftertaste but overall a decent beer for the style.

Draft at the brewery taproom. Pours clear, bright gold with a lasting, thick white cream head. Pissy and pithy hops in the nose, some tangerine, cat pee and subtle lime. Medium sweet flavor with dry and pithy citrus character, some grapefruit, tangerine, orange, lightly dried pale malts. Medium bodied with fine, massaging carbonation. Light spicy pine in the finish with more dry citrus pith, tangerine, balanced pale malt sweetness. Good stuff.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours cloudy orange with a small off white head. Aroma is mango and tropical fruits. Taste is initially very bitter pine, then the exotic fruit flavors really start to kick in. They go all the way to the easy finish. A true west coast style IPA and not a bad one.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. No date but this might be somewhat old. (2 months or so) Pours a light orange with big white head. Aroma is a nice nectarine, hop, and malt forward experience. The taste was just not there. Fruity malt, first i can say for that, citrus and lemon zest. Still this just didn’t do it for me. I hope it was the age of the bottle rather than Bootleggers having just fallen off on producing nice hoppy beers anymore.

On tap at Bootleggers. My notes are scarce on this one, but it was a nice tropicial fruit bomb with some citrus and mild caramel. Very juicy and easy to drink. Good one.
