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.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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 it’s still tropical as it leaves. It’s clean and tasty. Finishes fruity and nicely bitter.

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.
