joeneugs (4304) - Livermore, California, USA - JUL 26, 2015
On tap at Beer Baron. It pours very cloudy orange with an off white head. The aroma is sharp and fruity with tons of mango, guava, a little pineapple and maybe a hint of banana? Thick with tropical fruit in any case. The flavor is the same. Guava, mango, grape and peach juice. Tasty, but the body is a bit thin, lackluster and unsupportive of all these big flavors. There’s a mild fruity bitter finish.

DSG (8557) - Tel Aviv, - MAR 16, 2015
[2/18/15] Draught at Bootlegger’s Brewery in Fullerton. Murky yellow. Lovely hoppy aroma of a tropical fruits salad. Sweetish flavor with fruity hops and moderate bitterness. Medium-bodied. Really nice.

On draft at the brewery. Pour is a cloudy medium gold (orangish), with a white head. Tons of tropical fruit, mango, pineapple, guava, grapefruit, some pine, and malty sweetness. Crazy fruit juice pale ale. The flavor is unique and delicious. Try some if you find it on draft!

Tap at the brewpub. Hazy golden yellow pour with a small dense white head. Lots of grapefruit, sweet mango, and orange in this. Juicy and delicious. Not bitter at all, just sweet.

yngwie (15566) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 12, 2013
On tap at the taproom. An unclear yellow to orange beer with a small white head. The aroma has citrus peel, cat pee and pine cones. Some malty sweetness in the mouth, dealt with by a good bitterness. Tropical fruits and orange peel too. Medium to full body and a soft carbonation. Lasting finish. Best so far from this brewery. 130813

thome50 (1233) - Morro Bay via Orange County, California, USA - SEP 14, 2012
Tap at Anthill. Pours a slight hazy golden color with minimal white head. Aroma is overpowering mango, pineapple, peach and some slight hop character. Taste is more mango and peach with a little bit of the malt taste I get in many of the Bootleggers hoppy beers. Honey and some belgian like traits to this half way through the taste and when it warms more. Overall, this is a good APA but a slightly unique flavor that I can’t pin point that I’m not totally down with.
