Pitcher at Munchen Haus, Leavenworth, WA, review entered from notes. Served in a shaker pint, Bootjack is a deep amber in color with an attractive, lasting white cap. Enjoyed this one immensely and it proved to be a great way to end a wilderness induced beer fast. Deep, resinous dark pine and oily citrus hop character works over a full, rich caramel malt body. Lots of grainy flavors, touches of toast. Hops come through extremely aromatic and flavorful. Moderate, sticky body with a smooth, lively carbonation. Full, satisfying bitterness to finish. Loved the balance of big malt and hop flavors.

Pint at the brewery. Gold with small white skim and light lace.

Smell is lightly hoppy, skunky and some sweet citrus.

Taste is fairly bread malt, decent bitterness and a piney hop flavor.

Mouthful is a little sticky, medium bodied.

Drinkability is pretty good, a solid IPA. Nice nod to the English style with the bread malt base, but firmly west coast with the pungent, resinous hops.

Poured into a Seattle Beer Week pint glass. Pours a clear, medium golden amber with a fine three finger white head with great retention and lacing. Aroma of bready, mildly caramel malt, light pine and citrus hops. Flavor is very nice bready malt, grapefruit and other citrus, piney and citrus hops; nicely balanced. Nice medium mouthfeel with some creaminess. A nicely made IPA that is not intensely hopped, with a great blend of hops flavors and a well chosen malt body. I'm a fan of good malt support in my IPAs and this one delviers. The hops seem somewhat subdued, but I wouldn't be surprised that this could be an old bottle; I bought it on a trip from a small store with some suspiciously out of season beers. I will definitely seek this out fresh when I'm in Yakima next time. Another case where it is to the buyers' AND brewers' benefit to date the bottles of time dependent beers.
