3.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 bomber to cervoise. Pours hazy orange, white ring head. Aroma of OJ, grass, dank, pinewood, candied peach and cat piss. Taste is same with TONS of fruit juice. Mouthfeel is moderately thick and oily. Finish is fruity sweet balaced very well with booze and fruity (slightly spicy) bitterness. Pretty smooth beer for a 9.8 abv, but I can’t get over the cat piss aroma.

3.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A little cloudy, with orange hue and tremendously vibrant head that laces beautifully.
NOSE- a bit of the citrus advertised on the bottle at first, but the resin takes over.
FLAVOR- very strong resin flavors offset with a bit of tropical fruit notes for balance.
Excellent beer. Definitely lives up to 3x Racer 5, in a double IPA no less!

Perfect double iPad in my opinion. Pine tar and pine resin aroma. Malty and dry flavor perfect balance. Fresh hoppy bitterness finishes this crystal clar copper color brew.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a lovely traffic cone orange, slightly cloudy. Aroma is pine cone and tropical/stone fruit. Taste is mainly pine and resin; dry and bitter, with some boozy sweetness. less citrus and fruit than some DIPAs. Oily and heavy on the palate, but not in a bad way: it’s just a pine cone hop bomb, what did you expect? Delicious, though not exactly an everyday brew. More like a final indulgence to split...and then goodnight all.

Flavorful, aromatic, lovely. Poured out of a bomber, it's a light golden color, with a nice citrus aroma. Strong alcohol really smooths out the flavors. Fantastic beer.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Dark orangish color. The aroma is sweet, dank and orange citrus. The taste is sweet with some subtle pine and some citrus. The sweetness really shines through and this is a fantastic DIPA standing out from the usual Citrus bombs. Excellent.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber bottle. Aroma is citrus hops. Appearance is ok. Taste is very pine resin hops. Not as much citrus as I thought it would be. Palate is resin hopped. Overall, a great IPA. Will buy again and again.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle. Moderate roasted and caramel for the malt, pine for the hops, light soap for the yeast, with hints of cooked apple and honey. Head is average size, frothy, white with good lacing and is mostly lasting. Color is hazy medium amber. Flavor starts moderately sweet and lightly acidic, then finishes moderately sweet and lightly bitter. Palate is on the fuller side of medium, oily with a soft to lively carbonation. Palate is on the fuller side of medium, oily with a soft to lively carbonation, and a lightly to moderately alcoholic finish. Maltier than I expect from a Bear Republic DIPA. Regardless, this is an excellent beer.
