So Raul cruised himself down by the train tracks like Keroauc to Bootleggers Brewery. And while getting dainty on a half pint in a mason jar/thimble, Raul says, why not?
Ok, it looks alright, and it smells great...so let's dip in for the real deal.
Yeah, this thang is deceiving. Like Lindsay Lohan with make up on, umm... Hell, I don't even know if I would then. It does have a nice lil tropical burst, but it ends a bit skunky like Lohan stumbling out of a club at 2 AM.
I mean, um, yeah.

Great Hop Aroma. It was very dry tasting at the front and sweet when it hit the back. Very clean and crisp. It was hazy when poured and has this amazing orange tint to it. Reminded me of a beer i made before. Very good across the board. I wish this beer would get bottled.

On tap at Bootlegger's Brewery in Fullerton, CA.
Pours a murky honey orange with a foamy off-white 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 melon aromas. Taste is much the same with citrus and melon flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer with some nice fruity aromas and flavors.

Growler to Bootleggers Tulip
Split with my buddy Jeremy
App- A soft peachy orange/yellow. This was very hazy and dense in the glass. A bit of a larger 2 finger head with some big soapy cling down the glass. Looks great in the glass. Not as brown and resiny as some pales.
Smell- Hot damn!! Can you say tropical on the nose? Large amounts of mango and pineapple. Like a pack of tropical fruit starbursts for your nose. Creamy hops on the other side of it. A well balanced nose and not at all malty. Bright, hoppy and citrusy. Really aromatic with a touch of sweetness.
Taste- This was one hell of a pale ale. Would give most IPA's and DIPAs a run for their money. Bright, hoppy and creamy. Huge citrusy flavors with incredible balance. The opening flavors are of the fruits. Next is the hops and a peppery bitter flavor. Just a great beer.
Mouth- A huge medium body with a great medium carbonation. A large creamy feel behind it. Huge amounts of residual citrus with a pineapple and mango flavor. Creamy, hoppy and just a touch of bitter.
Drink- DAMN!!! I hope this remains on rotation for a while. This is a great beer. I want more!!!!

On-tap at Bruery Provisions. 16 oz. pour to a pint glass.
Golden, lively, healthy head, bubbles rushing on. Significant guava flavor, which enhanced this IPA with such a tropical fruit flavor profile.
Extremely drinkable, the 16 oz. I had was decimated in less than 5 minutes. So aromatic, so tropical, so flavorful, and so delicious.
Bootlegger's should make this a year-long growler fill pronto. So motherfucking good. Or bottle this bad boy into 6-pak already.
