BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Bootlegger's Brewery
California, United States

Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.20%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
The Galaxy hops from Australia give it a funkadelic tropical fruit aroma, and the balance between the malt and hops is wicked. You’ll want to bogart this one because every sip keeps you wanting more, and at 7% alc by vol, this IPA will have you talking jive in no time. It’s going to be difficult not to dig this beer, because it’s far out, man.

Appearance-Cloudy and foggy pale yellow.

Smell-Grass with underlying sweetness from red berries.

Taste-Grass and vegetables. mainly cucumber.

Mouthfeel-Heavy like an ipa. Good, lengthy finish.

Overall-Not a fan of the flavors. I liked the subtlety on the nose best. I liked the Palomino Pale quite a bit more.

Doin' it well and easy at the #1 joint - The Playground, in Downtown Santa Ana, CA.

Interesting to say the least. Hoppy like your grandmama after a few White Zins on her birthday, but the aftertaste is a bit subdued like Raul when he takes your granmama's codeine. Well and good, but a lil different - like that lil wiener no one wanted to play four square with in grammar Skool.

Raul recommend, but he's a lil perplexed.

Has an interesting bite to it can't quite explain it but it just hits the back of your mouth with a bitterness, can't quite explain it
