4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
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.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.
