On tap at Pizza Plant Transit, post-extreme beer fest. Alcohol aroma, golden colour, lots of white ace, some white head. Medium mouthfeel. 100+ IBU, and really tasty, but somewhat of a palate shreddy. Good drinkability.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Wonderful nose with a lovely fresh west coast hop funk and a nice understated toastiness. Caramel, white bread, and multiple layers of hops. A little hot for its alcohol percentage. Finishrles resiny and dry. A nicely balanced dipa.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A: The pour is a slightly hazy golden amber color with a thin white head on top.
S: The nose has plenty of fresh grapefruit and other citrus hops. There is a bit of pine and a touch of sweet malt.
T: The hops provide a real fruity character to the beer with lots of grapefruit and pineapple but do not think this is a sweet IPA. There is a ton of bitter, resinous, piney hop flavor as well.
M: The body is medium to full with a moderate carbonation.
D: This is actually one of the better DIPAs I’ve had. A fantastic amount of bitterness along with almost no alcohol presence.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a transparent deep bronze with a wispy lacing white head. Has a fairly fresh citrusy grapefruit hoppy nose with sweet underlying light caramel notes. Starts with good fullness and a sweet toasty light caramel and pale maltiness well balanced with an assertive resiny hop flavor before a drier crisp bittersweet finish. A nice iipa.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap at Blue Palms. Color is a nice, rich gold. Nose is very full hops, as expected, with a tart apple quality. Flavor is loads of fruity but acidic hops, pretty well balanced by malt, with definite orange and apple characteristics. Not my favorite dubs, but really competent.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at the Vine Street Pub. Nice orange color, looks good, Smells hoppy! Citrus, fruity, some pine in both the aroma and teh flavor. This was a good IPA and I could not tell if it was high in ABV or not based upon the taste. I wish it were easier to find fresh Bear republic IPA’s in Colorado but c’est la vie.
Serving type: on-tap
