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 won’t soon be forgotten.

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

Barreras (988) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - SEP 25, 2014
Pours a copper brown color with a light floral aroma. Taste is mildly bitter, with a clean slight metallic flavor. A lighter IPA with a rich hops fflavor and a tinge of grapefruit. Overall, a decent beer for the style that was enjoyable for a limited series.

"Orange peel and sweet malt aroma and taste, though it seems a bit malt-forward, possibly due to age...can’t tell cuz they don’t date the bottle. Nice full feel, but everything else is average at best. Bordering on imperial like bitterness, but the florals and citrus hop flavors are lacking."

fiulijn (14777) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 17, 2014
Bottle from Malt and Vine, Redmond
Hazy amber color with medium sized compact head. The aroma is very grainy, almost dusty, with light hops. Good body strength; the malt flavor has a too strong cereal/grains character, some hops; strong bitterness.
Ok beer, not so pleasant.

mcberko (6568) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 17, 2014
22 oz. bottle, pours a fairly clear golden orange with a medium white head. Aroma brings out dry biscuity malt, light piney hops and some astringency. Flavour is grainy, with dry piney hops, some floral notes, and biscuity malt. Very dry, with a very grainy texture and no residual sweetness. Solidly made IPA here, but nothing special.

Pours a rich golden copper with a frothy tan head. Aroma of citrus. Taste is rich British malt and an aggressive orange citrus hop flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jazz88 (2556) - San Francisco, California, USA - AUG 11, 2014
A hazy orange yellow color with a lush foamy white head. Very rich and delightful. This feels more like a double IPA. It has intense bitterness and a full bodied flavor packed into a 7.6% abv beer. A big citrus aroma (orange and pine).

tightslice (203) - Redwood City, California, USA - AUG 10, 2014
Bottle pour. A clean, respectable IPA without too much bitterness. Crisp and drinkable.

Aromas of citrus, pine and caramel. Pours copper with thick white head. Bitterness balanced well with maltiness and alcohol. Decent IPA.
