BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Bootlegger's Brewery
California, United States
bootleggersbrewery.com

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.

This is a malt forward IPA, but the hops still prevail for me with this IPA. I get mango, and a slight pineapple taste as the core fruits in an IPA.

Serving type: 22 oz into a pint glass

Pours a hazy dark orange color. Smells of pineapple, guava, fruity sweetness, slight hops dank, with some random pine thrown in. It's pleasant. Taste is superior to the smell. Initial fruity/floral flavors lead into slight cattiness, which finishes with a medium strong bitterness that leaves the mouth wanting more. It's quite refreshing. Feel is semi-light and amply carbonated which leads to a pleasant feel in tandem with the flavor profile. Overall, this is a very nice beer that is tasty and easy to drink.

22 ounce bomber poured into a tulip glass

A: Pours a dark, hazy orange with a bright white creamy head, lots of carbonation, lots of lacing.

A: Pine, resin, citrus, oranges, sweet maltiness, smells very sweet.

T: Like the nose, pine and resin notes, hint of citrus flavors, moderate amount of bitterness, dry finish, notes of lemon peel, semi-sweet, aftertaste is of lemon, pretty solid.

M: Creamy mouthfeel, well carbonated, dry finish.

O: Pretty tasty, very drinkable, balanced, goes down real easy, I get no alcohol at all, leans on the sweet side, overall a solid IPA, definitely worth a try.

This beer is not retired or the brewery brought it back. Picked up a 22oz bomber at the store. I really enjoyed this IPA, I like most of the West Coast IPA that I have had.

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
