look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A- deep orange yellow with slight translucence
S- strong ctirus and pine hops
Mouthfeel – heavy body for style. Good carbonation, not overly dry
Taste- malt and bitterness in balance, clean dry finish with strong citurs and pine throughout.
Overall – showcases citrus and pine hop notes very well. Excellently balanced Northwest IPA. Deep pine and citrus hop profile without excessive bittering.

Serving type: on-tap

A much better than average beer that is well worth the drive to Leavenworth, WA

Appearance is a orange brown yumminess with a perfect amount of head.

Smell suggest a fun ride the hoppheads!

Tast is a fine hoppy bite mellowed by a citrus hint.

Mouthfeel is smooth enough to go down almost tooo easily.

An excellent beer from a small local brewery.

Had this on tap last night. Appearance was nice and clear.
Smell was awesome, I know I'm going to like an IPA when I smell it and it reminds me of high quality marijuana...not necessarily skunky, just that intense floral, hoppy plant smell.

Taste was very good, lots of floral and citus, just what I like in a great IPA.

Mouthfeel was very nice, drank easily.

Overall one of my top IPA's I've had. I actually had a Green Flash West Coast IPA after this and was disappointed that I didn't just have another Bootjack.

Appearance is a slightly hazy mid amber with a nice layered curtain of lace. Smell having a nice caramel aroma of malt balancing well with the perfumy citric aroma. Taste of the sweet caramel malt that has that nice balance as in the aroma with the citric hops that are more aromatic than bittering. Mouthfeel is medium with just enough carbonation. What I would consider to be a very enjoyable easy drinking and balanced IPA, which can be hard to come by.

On-tap at Jones' Radiator. Served in a pint glass.

Pours a rich gold/bronze color slightly hazy. Creamy white head.

Smell is a faint caramel malt aroma.

Taste is a nice caramel pine flavor. Unusually mild and sweet for the style.

Mouthfeel is a medium to full body. Lighly carbonated. Like a cask conditioned ale.

Very drinkable IPA

On tap twice over a weekend in Leavenworth: once @ South, once @ a pizza place whose name I forget.

Pours a clear coppery amber w/ a big sudsy white head, leaving behind nice rings of lace that signify a well-built brew.

Aroma is pure hops: pine, citrus, tangerine, orange.

Taste follows nose. Piney, citrusy, tropical. A blend of pale biscuity and caramel malts bind everything together. Dry with a lingering sweetness.

Mouthfeel is smooth and clean, refreshing, drinkable.

Overall just a tasty IPA, one I'd be happy to drink every day. Leavenworth is lucky to have this brewery.

Pours a bright crystal clear amber with orange tint, ample white head with minimal lacing. Smell is pine resin and orange pith. Taste is similar, slight biscuit note in the back really balances the bitter pine bite. Mouthfeel is light and sessionable, highish carbonation, real crisp and succinct, this is a real nice IPA. Could use a touch more citrus in the flavor, but still a damn fine and well balanced brew.

Had at South Bar and Grill in Leavenworth. Really nice golden color with a big foamy head. Aroma is strong pine, hops with a hint of floral notes. Nice hop flavor and a great body. Nothing overdone with this beer. I think even a non IPA fan would find this drinkable if not even a bit enjoyable. Very nice clean beer, very refreshing.

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.
