Hopped and Bothered; Bootleggers Rustic Rya IPA
Bootleggers -- Rustic Rye IPA
Alcohol content 6.2%. Looks like a darker larger when poured. Fairly thick. The smell is pine and fairly subtle. Not a whole lot of power to this. The first sip is a standard IPA, but fairly muted until the finish. There is where the hops and grapefruit kick it up a few notches. There is a hint of citrus sweetness but it feels muted as well.
Buy if: you are in the mood for a decent IPA.
Overall: drinking this was like watching The Dark Knight Rises: muted until a supposedly climactic finish but nothing really came of it.
