On tap at Bootlegger's Brewery in Fullerton, CA.

Pours a clear gold with a foamy bone head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, citrus fruit, citrus zest, and tropical fruit aromas. Taste is much the same with melon and citrus flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is tasty and easy to drink.

On-tap at Bootlegger's

Pours a clear golden orange color with a finger of white head. Intense pine and grapefruit aromas right away. A bit of an herbal note and grass, too. Very mild malt, in typical Bootlegger’s fashion. A very dry IPA with a nice bitterness. Very citric and piney with a strong grapefruit character. Only a hint of bready malt. The bitterness stays on the back end.

Clean, pure grapefruit flavor. The standard orangey amber in the Mort Subite globe. Some coarse head, but not long lasting, though it renews with a couple of swirls. Big spritz in the mouth. The aroma is quite nice-- flowers and citrus.

Flavor is grapefruit marmalade. Sweet and bitter, sharp and tangy. A serious bitter edge, and quite hot and acidic. The malt seems to be so pale as to contribute little if any flavor. I don't think I've tasted a beer that is more clearly grapefruit scented and flavored. Supposed to be Australian Galaxy hops. Far out!

A really hoppy but pleasant brew. Your tongue will tingle, but the aromas will make you swoon. From the 22 oz bottle bought at Bine & Vine in San Diego.

22 oz. bomber,

A: Pours gold with a medium-high white head leaving some nice lace. Clear as day.

S: Notes of citrus and pineapple/mango/tropical.

T: Nice, again, citrus tropical mix bringing lemon verbana, yellow mango, passion fruit and pineapple to the table.

M: Crisp, clean, fairly dry for the style. Refreshing, medium-bodied.

O: This is a good IPA with definite appeal to fans of a certain style. The bomber price at $6.50 is outrageous for a single IPA, next time I'll go to the source.

Poured from the bottle into a Spiegelau IPA glass.

A bright orange amber body color, tangerine to apricot in appearance, with a little bit of thin carbonation, through a somewhat clear and thick body. Head is off white and three fingers tall, with very soapy retention. A real nice shiny glass and appearance, with some lacing.

Subtle tropical aromatics of hop on the nose, somewhere between mango and pineapple and a bit of woody pine. Some vanilla sweetness comes in a bit. All of it nice and subtle. Quite a good bouquet.

Pretty solid palate with a real nice juiced mouthfeel. Hints at a little bit of brown sugar and syrup but considerably lighter with the hop tropical juiced angle. Some surprising faint toasty notes of white bread and bakery sweetness, both in the mid palate and on the finish. Much good tropical juiced action, and a good balance between minimal sweetness and bitterness.

Solid IPA.

Pours clear golden with a pillow-y white head that leaves behind real good lacing throughout. Aromas are of resin, dank hop notes, pineapple, herbaceous, tropical fruit, medium esters, light tangy notes, and sweet malts are detected. The flavor begins with a light bitterness then recedes to citrus, mild grain, dank, and a good chunk of tropical fruit. The beer finishes sweet and bitter with lasting citrus rind and a grapefruit bite. Lively carbonation throughout. Unlike some other IPAs, this is very light bodied and fairly quffable for the style.
