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

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

Tap at Bootleggers. Pours clear golden with a larger, white, rocky head. Nose is massive mango, papaya, pineapple, caramel, butterscotch. Holy monkey. Taste is thick, dense, butterscotch heavy, honey, spicy coriander. Really good overall. Orange acidity balances heavy oil.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
The pour is a hazy orange color with a finger of white head. Absolutely phenomenal nose on this beer. Amazing guava, mango, pineapple, tangerine, grapefruit, and pine hop notes. Some light maltiness, and a bit of Belgian yeast character, maybe some spice and bubblegum. The flavor is full of sweet, fruity hops. Guava, mango, pineapple, and grapefruit are all noticeable. A nice bit of piney bitterness and a moderate malt sweetness and yeast contribution. One of the best Bootlegger’s beers to date.
