COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hereís the skinny on Far Out IPA. This is one hip beer. The Galaxy hops from Australia give it a funkadelic tropical fruit aroma, and the balance between the malt and hops is wicked. Youíll want to bogart this one because every sip keeps you wanting more, and at 7% alc by vol, this IPA will have you talking jive in no time. Itís going to be difficult not to dig this beer, because itís far out, man.

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 didnít 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.

bhensonb (10908) - Woodland, California, USA - DEC 31, 2013
Bomber from Bine & Vine. Pours light golden amber with a transient white head. Aroma is rather tropical fruit. Mango, passionfruit - something like that. Med + body. Partly due to very foamy carbonation. Flavor stays fruity, gets a bit of citrus - the bitterness is going sort of grapefruit rind. Yet itís still tropical as it leaves. Itís clean and tasty. Finishes fruity and nicely bitter.

schismatik (5) - WHITTIER, USA - JUN 3, 2013 does not count
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.

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. Thereís 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).
