Apricot colour, a piny aroma with maybe some peachy notes. flavor of grapefruit zest, nice dryness, a bit edgy.

Crystal clear, light amber ale. Large, off-white, frothy head with spotty lacing. Smells piney, like a big, fresh Cascade hop cone. Malty undertones (caramel). Moderately and warmly bitter. Piney too! Plenty of rich malt to balance the flavor. Full-bodied with an oily mouthfeel and fizzy carbonation. Astringent. Lengthy, dry and bitter finish with notes of earth and wood at the very end. So close to being a world class beer!

Rockinout (966) - Kent, Ohio, USA - SEP 19, 2003
Copper color with a light,sweetish, soft floral nose. Lacing on the glass, lingering bitter finish but not over the top. I like Bear Republic. Thanks Redlem!

Huge creamy head tops this amber hued brew. Nice lace cling to glassware. Aroma has big pine esters as well as soapy, spicy, grassy and grapefruit hints. Initial taste was sweet but soon a big rush of bitter hops announced it's presence. Very piney aftertaste and dry finish. This medium-bodied brew has a lively and metallic mouthfeel. Hides the 7% ABV too damn well. I'm becoming a big fan of Bear Republic's beers, hope to find some on tap next week in NoCal.

SDbruboy (1864) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 23, 2003
Golden amber, white head and nice lacing. Stong hoppy aroma with spice and pine present. Big hop kick with some malt sweetness. A little unbalanced and leaves a pucker. Medium body with lots of carbonation.

MadMan (495) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - AUG 20, 2003
Nose is malt and hop spice. Pours a slightly cloudy amber brown. Start is malt sweet followed by a fairly strong hop floral and bitter finish. This is fairly well hopped and I don't care what category it is in. Very nice drinkable brew- I am not rating it against the other IPAs.

Racer 5 has a bold hop aroma with a big hop/malt flavor. The hop bitterness hits you with just a short delay, really complex.

Radek Kliber (6586) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - AUG 16, 2003
How can’t you love such refreshing hoppy aroma? Add to this some honey, very nice! Tea appearance, nice white head. Medium creamy texture, with instantly hitting your sensors hopps. Bitterness that mellows in the middle and finish. Scent of chocolate (medium roasted malt). Alcohol wraps thing nicely and it’s adding nice warming feel. Very well thought IPA.

UPDATED: MAY 28, 2012 A fortified bitter citrus sirocco also carries apricots and peaches... Delicious, shearing resinous bitterness in a drinkable, athletic malt body... This is a very nice West Coast-style IPA, from the tap at the brewpub, or from the bottle...
