Bought in a 22 oz bomber, first time I had seen this beer in Salem. What a beautiful looking beer. Really hazy dark orange with a fantastic thick,frothy, pure white head..lovelly. Very "piney" aroma,quite fresh and enjoyable Very very nice hoppy West coast IPA, very much bitter lemon tasting, not so much "grapefruit",below there is some semblance of malts, but this is a hop monster. Very nice and invigorating on the tongue, refreshing to the taste buds. Very nice IPA on of the best in my estimation..will buy again..soon!

bitter (1136) - Henderson, Nevada, USA - JAN 10, 2005
on draft at the yard house san digo: i lived in san francisco for several years and thought i had tried all of the bear republic beers but i definately wouldnt of forgotten this one if i had. this was the last beer of the night in a long string of good ones...stone, alesmith, alpine, ballast. nothing unusual to look at, your typical copper orange clear beer with an off white chunky head. large nose of citrus mango crispiness. your taste buds immediately respond with a dominant flourish of pine flavor in your mouth, a fullness and slight sugar ending but not especially bitter. i ran to the nearest bev n more and bought 6 /22oz bottles of this beautiful beer. this one can hang with the greats. a pine heaven.

shadey (1879) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 10, 2005
On Tap at the Beale Street Cafe in Rochester. Nice orange color, with a nice white head that I attribute to the tap. Color is a strong but smooth hop character, not biting like other IPAs. The flavor is nicely balanced. I describe the hops character as strong (as it should be) but smooth and not biting. Quite a nice IPA.

axilla (962) - New Providence, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 7, 2005
I didn’t know State Line had Bear Republic...Great head. Murky looking orange/brown body. Has a sweet piney citrus hop aroma. Sweet hoppy flavor followed up with a mild alcohol taste and more hops. Great ipa!

UPDATED: NOV 18, 2007 Re rate - all of the same still applies, but since it’s being produced in larger quantities, the quality is not consistent. A nice citrus/mango aroma. Deep copper color, made me think of dark orange leaves in fall. Hoppy and bitter flavor, but just enough unfermented crystal malt sweetness to balance it out. Even a bit of malt flavor in there, which was a pleasant surprise, those nuances tend to get stomped on by hops in this style. Thanks to Kristin at Toronado in San Francisco for originally introducing me to this one.

Medium white head, lacing, atop a copper colored brew. Hoppy/citrus nose and flavor, some malts, lightly bitter pleasant finish

MillStreetMan (152) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 2, 2005
This was an excellent IPA. It poured a thick head that stayed the duration and offered an enticing scent. It was quite astringent and hoppy, as well as being citrusy and woody. It was quite dry and bitter, with the hop residue at the bottom of the bottle offering an extra kick.

sloth (2447) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - JAN 1, 2005
Pours a small beaded offwhite head that is long lived and leaves behind plenty of lace. Clear, copper/orange colored brew. Large, flowery, citrusy nose, very nice! Medium body, lightly resiny. Great hop flavor, citrus, pine. Fruity with a solid lightly sweet maltiness,lightly toasty and caramelly. Finish is dry, largely hoppy, fruity and stings. @ 7%, a real AIPA baby! Bottle conditioned! I love it. At $3.99 a bomber a true deal! Bear Republic rocks!

Overall I’m pretty impressed with this beer. It has a wonderful hop nose, beautiful color, hazy only because it’s bottle conditioned and pretty decent balance. Not over the top with the hops.
