3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Nice amber haze, with an awesome initial scent of citrus and medium hops. Goes down smooth with a mild bitterness, slightly woody. Long lasting taste to bring out a few more subtle flavors.

On tap at The Hideout Brewpub. Clear amber with a thin off-white head. Aroma of citrus, grapefruit and caramel. Taste is kinda pithy wilt citrus, grapefruit and sweet malt. Moderate lasting bitterness.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
tap at the brewpub last summer - Pours copper with a mild hop aroma. The flavor has the usual high hops bitterness level and has maybe a touch of citrus. It’s mostly just bitter though. Medium body and light carbonation. Alright.

Had on draft at the brewpub. To me, this beer tasted like the 3rd beer I ever brewed - a shitty extract beer. The whole time I am bad-mouthing this beer at the pub, the brewer was sitting next to me. Oh well, don’t brew shitty beer and that won’t happen.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at brewpub, pours an amber color with a light white head, has a very bitter aroma but the taste is overall disappointing, it has a very thin mouthfeel and could have been bigger.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a golden amber color. Hazy at first, but clears up as it warms. Fruity, spicy, and caramel aromas. Soft palate, medium in body with a lasting finish. Sweet with caramel malt and some fruitiness balanced by a spicy hops finish. Not bad, sweeter than I usually expect from an IPA.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at the brewpub. Yellow copper color with white head. Small fruity and citrus hop aroma. A good amount of bitterness and nice fruit undertones. Could have more hops for an IPA but not bad.

I like this IPA only if Ken’s Gangster IPA is not available.. I think the Gangster IPA beats this hands down. The bootleg has a slightly excessive overall bitterness and lacks personality. The Gangster has better flavor and better bitterness balance.
