COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Standing face to face, an enduring rivalry reaches the breaking point.

Vendetta IPA is the taste of sweet revenge. Aggressively bitter with a cutthroat convergence of citrus and aromatic hops, Vendetta wonít soon be forgotten.

As the next in our Bootlegger Limited Series, weíre releasing an IPA with a vengeance. Legit since 1997, Speakeasy Ales & Lagers operates in the San Francisco district once known as Butchertown.

Brings the essence of beer. This beer will give you the smell, taste, and look of what a beer should be. It has a detailed taste that can turn disbelievers, but itís mostly just a beerís beer.

Bomber from Whole Foods. Pours copper with 2-finger frothy off-white head. Nose is floral hops, piney. Tastes caramel malty, with a big floral explosion at mid-palate, ad some piney and fruity finishing notes. This one is great.

omega (681) - NEW ZEALAND - JUN 4, 2014
Nicely constructed IPA. Pours a lovely rich golden colour and the sweetness is nicely balanced with the hops which linger nicely on the palate. Very drinkable.

PhillyCraft (3144) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 2, 2014
Draft at Kite and Key with Bill, pours oily orange with medium to thicker mouth. Notes are aggressive and bitter hops. Finishes a tad bit sweet but still pretty solid.

Pours a clear rust orange. Has a strong floral hop aroma. Taste is very floral with light hops and grains. A light dry aftertaste but not overwhelmingly bitter.

OldGrowth (2620) - North Carolina, USA - MAY 17, 2014
Bottle from Safeway Petaluma. Ok/good aroma. Citrus, pine. Tad medicinal, clean bronze orange color good headand lace. Bittersweet flavor. Medium body, thick creamy oily mouthfeel, bitter dry finish. Well. Itís ok in the scheme of things. But combines some aromas and flavor sim not a fan of. Grapefruit and pine donít do it for me these days.... Looks good, feels good, itís aroma andnfl or that i donít like.

I've always avoided hoppy beers. I gravitate towards more balanced ones. This is a hoppy beer nicely balanced with sweetness. No bitter aftertaste. Not the one and you're done death by hops beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
