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 wont soon be forgotten.

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

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - SEP 9, 2013
Bottle:   Vibrant amber, on the orange side, moderate to large foamy cream colored head, nice lacing.   Soft citrus and pine on the nose.   Light tobacco.   Smooth on the tongue, very light bitterness, even softer citrus peel and tobacco.   Not a big IPA, but smooth.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Very soft citrus bitterness that really isnt all that bitter.   A touch of tobacco lingers.   Had this one about 4 months, seems like a settled IPA.   Still smooth and tasty.

Rballs01 (279) - Madison, New Jersey, USA - SEP 5, 2013
Enjoyed out of a bomber bottle. Poured a hazy copper orange. Great hops on the nose medium to heavy mouth feel. Not too much floral or bitter notes a mild hop flavor w a malty aftertaste. Not quiet what Im looking for in an IPA but definitely enjoyable and worth drinking again.

Maybe I got a bad bottle but mine did not taste anything like all these ratings. Zero citrus,mild hops, had more of an amber ale biscuit mild malt thing going on.Nice lacing but that is about it. BOO!

Oscbert (1022) - Sacramento, California, USA - AUG 13, 2013
~Mostly piney hop aroma with some citrus and floral hop balanced with biscuity malts. ~Pours a hazy orange with lasting fluffy white head. ~Strong piney hop flavor with citrus. Biscuity bread maltiness. ~Medium bodied, medium CO2, lingering piney bitterness. ~Enjoyable IPA. Compared to the many other California IPAs this one doesnt really stand out.

yngwie (13555) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 4, 2013
On tap at Toronado. It pours a clear, light amber body and a small, off-white head. Peaches and other tropical fruits in the aroma, with some sugary sweetness. A tad too sweet on the palate, but with nice fruityness of tropical fruits. Full body and pleasant carbonation. Good bitterness toward the end. Certainly a beer Id like too have again. 130804
