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

Pours a clear gold with a foamy bone head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, citrus fruit, and citrus zest aromas. Taste is much the same with malt and citrus fruit 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 and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer but the smell on this one is better in my opinion.

On-tap at Bootlegger's

A: The pour is a fairly clear golden orange color with a finger of white head and some mild lacing.

S: A huge citrus aroma of grapefruit and tangerines. There's a nice pine note and a lot of sweet tropical fruit notes. Just a super fresh and dank hop nose going on here.

T: Not quite as impressive of a flavor, but still very good. A lot of tropical fruit flavor like mango, papaya, and pineapple. There's a slight greenness to it, like grass (perhaps). A bit of a Jolly Rancher flavor on the finish. Nicely bitter, too.

M: Medium in body with a moderate carbonation and a bitter finish.

D: Palomino is pretty good on its own, but this is just an awesome version of it. Hopefully they do this one again.
