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.

I needed a hop bomb and this delivered. On tap at Sugar Maple in Milwaukee. Aroma is super hoppy with citrus taking the lead over pine trees. I’ve noticed there’s almost a house aroma/flavor of pine with everything these guys do. Bitter citrus and pine with just the faintest asprin finish. Caramel malts all in between. I’d love to try this one again.

On tap at stone. Clear amber with fluffy white head that disappeared quickly to a tight ring. Nose is sweet hops with a bitterness. Similar to Green Flash IIPA but not nearly as strong. Flavor is same pungent sweet sharp hops as above. Lots of pine and citrus with the strong sweet hops. If you like this style, as I do, it’s a good brew.
