In a blind tasting by BJCP trained experts, this beer rated


Bootstrap Brewing Insane Rush IPA

Aroma: “Very light and soft aromas of orange, lemon, peach, pine, and caramel. There’s a cotton-candy sweetness that has cherry and grape notes with a mild floral character. Intriguing.”

Flavor: “Hops flavor is a blend of earthy and pine. Slightly sweet malt yields to clean fruity hops (peach, apricot), and it’s slightly dank. Finishes dry enough for the style and slightly bitter, but not as bitter as a traditional West Coast IPA.”

Overall: “Clean and easy-drinking ‘fruit-forward’ IPA for the person who doesn’t want a mouth-coating bitterness bomb.”
