COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Here’s 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. You’ll 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. It’s going to be difficult not to dig this beer, because it’s far out, man.

Bottle pour. Clear bright golden with a good size white creamy head. Aroma is citrus, grapefruit, and pine. Medium creamy body. Sweet with a light, but long lasting bitter finish.

JBPortland (1368) - Portland, Maine, USA - DEC 16, 2015
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.

Barreras (1417) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - NOV 27, 2015
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.

blipp (7603) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 13, 2015
Draft. Pours golden orange with a white head. Fruity citric hops, grapefruit, lemon, some windy and pithy notes, moderate bitterness, and low sweetness. Pretty good.

Leighton (16268) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 1, 2015
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.

rlgk (15802) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 31, 2015
Draught at the brewpub in Fullerton, California. Clear golden beer with a nice lasting offwhite head. Fruity hop aroma, oranges, pine apples, mango, peach, grapes, some star fruit. Fresh hoppy fruity flavor, earthy notes, pine, oranges, some late grassy bitterness. Very nice.

euniceradio (338) - Worthington, Minnesota, USA - JUL 10, 2015
22 bomber to cervoise. Pours hazy gold with small frothy white head. Aroma of pine, trop fruits and malts. Taste of acidic citrus, trop fruit, pine, pepper spice and candy. Slightly boozy finish. Light mouthfeel, good carb.

S_Side_Smitty (651) - Lakeland, Florida, USA - SEP 11, 2014
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.

thome50 (1252) - Morro Bay via Orange County, California, USA - AUG 16, 2014
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.
