I had this on draft at Icicle Brewing and at Munchen Haus. This is very good IPA coming out of Leavenworth, WA. Along the lines of a West Coast IPA. A nice combo of hops, pine, grapefruit, and zest. I will definitely have this again.

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.
