Very Good
Loose BootsLoose Boots
Notes: It’s that feeling of wiggling your toes, moving your ankles again, and exhaling….in a bottle. We call Loose Boots our “Apres IPA” ; theres always a reason to kick back at the end of any day; low alcohol, big hoppy punch. Lemon, lime and pine (read “alpine”) with a crisp malty backbone. Easy to drink while those memories and stories flow.

I got a can of this beer from my good friend and old neighbor from the 'Wego. It poured a slightly hazy golden with white head that is leaving some lace. The scent had subtle bitter citrus hops. The taste was nicely balanced and easy to drink with bitter tangerine and lemon flare. The mouthfeel was lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall it is a great beer.

Poured from can into tulip, good 2+ finger cream colored head, great retention and lacing. Pale hazy yellow in the glass, no floaties. Light on the nose, some grain and some citrus, nothing overpowering. Taste is initially sweat malt, then a pop of citrus(lemon/orange) and fades to a spicy dry finish. Not the best session IPA in the world, but man an easy drinker. This is a great beer to have multiples of in a setting. It won't tax your palate, yet quite enjoyable to drink

12 oz can with a 7 April 2021 canning date stamped on the bottom rim.
Appearance. Pours with a tall, creamy, durable, bright white head. The body is straw colored.
Feel. Lively, high carbonation but mild enough to work well with the light IPA.
Aroma. Hops with citrus and spicy notes over a subtle bready smell.
Flavor. Matches the aroma but, excepting the bitterness, mild for the style.
Mouthfeel. Smooth but lively carbonation in a light body.

Can from Hops and Bottles. Light golden body with a mild haze, small patchy head. Faint aroma, citrus. Taste follows with some lemony notes. Pretty lightweight all around.

Poured from a 12oz can with a canned on date of 10/5/19; into a pub glass.
Appearance- slightly hazy, with swirling bubbles that hold a thick, fluffy white head; lacing is decent!
Smell - mostly floral with a touch of stone fruit.
Taste- more profound floral and stone fruit flavor than what comes across in the nose!
Feel - not too light, bitter and flavorful!
Overall- I’m dropping the overall score on a technicality; this is very good, but for me, I look for a session to be under 5%, and this seasons version is right at 5%.

my can says 5% abv, maybe some variation from year to year on this one. cool idea for a session beer, mountainside tunes, loose boots, who doesnt dig that?! the beer tastes like its been sitting on a warm shelf awhile, tired and faded on the hops, which is a shame, because i can tell that this was a winner, as has been so much of the hoppy stuff from roadhouse so far in my experience with their beers. i get some serious pineapple, green grass, and cut flowers in the nose, but also some obvious bitterness and oxidation. flavor is about the same, but a neat tropical nuance like kiwi fruit and then sprite soda or something, lemongrass too. a light green pepper vegetal layer, but this is not over hopped or poorly proportioned at all, its just dated (no date visible on my can to confirm though). a light body is always nice in a session beer, and the high carbonation is also a good touch for one of these, so the feel is pretty dialed. its a little too hoppy to be refreshing, but again that could be more a product of age than recipe. going to reserve any more critical judgement here until i can have this in its prime, but it sure shows a lot of promise...

edit: obviously way better fresher, had a can tonight, clean and pretty bright, still floral and grassy, one of the less fruity beers in this style i have had in awhile, a nice buy from my mother in law for the holidays. roadhouse is real solid with the hoppy stuff, increasing a score or two here to reflect a better drinking experience than when i had it the first time...

Hazy, pale yellow body; thick, creamy and sticky white head. Prominent pine and citrus aroma. Excellent light citrus punch to the flavor; lemon; light bread crust; well-rounded hop bitterness. Crisp, dry and prickly on the palate.

A very satisfying session IPA that delivers fairly intense flavors and aroma to the senses.

Thanks goes out to Bitterbill for this brew.

12 oz. Bottle
ABV: 5%

My first from this brewery.

Poured into a tulip a slightly hazy yellow/orange color, pretty nice carbonation, with a pretty nice thick/creamy one-finger plus white head, which also leaves some pretty nice sticky lacing behind. The nose is hoppy, malty, with a pretty nice citrus complex (orange, tangerine, mango), slight pine. The taste is pretty nice, hoppy, malty, with a nice citrus complex (orange, tangerine, mango), piney. Medium body, ABV is hidden very well, with a nice little dry/bitter finish. Overall, a pretty tasty brew, surprised me. Thanks Bill!

On draught at Old Chicago. Pours a slightly hazy pale gold, nice head of foam and lacing. Smells grassy, piney, some citrus. Tastes of pine, grass, citrus, no malt presence but, none needed. Nice session IPA.

Edit March 10th 2018: I pulled a bottle from the fridge, packaged October 19th 2017. My bad for forgetting that I had it. Well, surprise surprise, it tastes better than the draught I had for this review! Hop fade, what's that? Lol. Scores adjusted.
