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.

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.

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.

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.

on tap at the brewery. pours light amber with small head. aroma is lacking hoppieness for an ipa, but nice caramel notes. flavor is quite bitter, but again lacking in hop flavor.

bigtaster (979) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - AUG 13, 2008
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.
