4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a light copper color with small head that dissapears quick. Light on bubbles. Aroma is of orange citrus hops with a faint pine. Taste is orangey citrus hops coming upfront with a dry with a grassy bitterness. The hop bitterness is balanced with a dry but moderately sweet malt back bone. Overall a solid ipa.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear golden yellow with a billowy white head. Surprisingly floral aroma with a bit of tropical fruit. The bitter hops hit quickly but not too strongly, although they stick to the tongue. The aroma follows into the flavor along with grapefruit and pith. There’s a good light, sweet malt balance but the hops definitely rule. Finishes sweet and bitter with lasting citrus rind and grapefruit bite. Unlike some other IPAs, this is very light bodied and fairly easy to drink although the bitterness seems to build as you drink it (in a good way for hop lovers).

This is a big resiny and spicy IPA. Definetely a Bootlegger’s beer. You can smell and taste their perspective on hops. Has a really nice fizz and pop to it as well.

Sampled at GABF 2012 with Andrew and Moreau. Pours a golden amber body with white lacing. Aroma is orange, grapefruit and bitter hop. Mouthfeel is bitter and dry with notes of grapefruit, light pine, and bitter orange. Somewhat plain overall, but not at all bad.

juicy grapefruit nose, flavor is very bitter, especially on the end of the palette. Would like to see the flavor come closer to the aroma.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Bootleggers. Clear golden pour. Medium rocky head. Nose is butterscotch, caramel, citrus rind, onion, fresh orange oil. Oh yeah. Taste is dry, herbal, leafy hop forward. A very aggressive, very bitter mega IPA. Dry, nutty finish. Not as soft and quenching as their Rye IPA.
