Received a bomber as a Christmas gift. I have seen a bunch of this at my local beer store and have passed it up. I won't anymore. This is an excellent IPA. Reminds me of Stone Ruination. It may even be better. I added this to my short list of favorites. If you like IPAs, this is a must try. You will not be disappointed...... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

One of the best I P A's out there. Citrus, pine and grassy notes. Sweet and bitter on the palate. Bear Republic consistently gets it right.

Davhgbrew (887) - Coconut Creek, Florida, USA - APR 9, 2014
Citrusy, piney, and resiny medium to full bodied. Malt backs it up solidly, but this is a easy drinking nicely hopped west coast ipa. At 7.5 abv it is sneaky strong. Some spicy yeast flavors from the bottle conditioning make this brew a real treat.

warhawk91 (236) - Newington, Connecticut, USA - APR 8, 2014
Pint draft at Armsby Abby in Worcester, MA. Pours a hazy orange golden, nice white head, really good lacing. Smell is citrusy orange with resiny hops and spice. Taste is earthy and sweet with orange and bitter grapefruit. Nice amount of bitterness, lingers just enough between sips. Really nice.

this IPA pours a golden amber color with a nice fluffy white head. good looking beer. the nose is grapefruit, pine needle, a grassy note, some lemon zest, a biscuit malt aroma... super smelling IPA. it’s full bodied, with a lemony, grassy taste to it, not too bitter, but it does have a nice bitter bite. I really enjoyed this IPA, it’s one of my favorites.

ScipioA (212) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - APR 6, 2014
Pours out a hazy orange with some floating flakes and a tan head. Aromas of orange juice and alcohol. Sweet citrus flavor. Some bitterness, but much less than other IPAs, hops are used more for flavor and aroma than bitterness. Exceptional mouthfeel, soft carbonation yet a thick body and a dry minerally finish that invites another sip. Great refreshing and classic IPA that still dominates the competition.

Pours orange. Med head. Med carbs. Balanced with slight hop forward. Stone style hops but not as aggressive.

Finally had one of these after my second recent trip to California. A very nice, very easy going IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
