22 oz. bomber. Poured clear copper with thin head that left sheets of lacing. Light citrus fruity flavor with grassy undertones. Love the lower IBU profile that Bear Republic pulls off with this brew. This beer is proof that high IBUs does not necessarily equal better IPA.

Bottle on a dinner, CA. Color: clear amber orange beer with small carbonation and small white foam. Smell: hoppy and resin domination. Notes of grass and small floral finish. Taste: medium palate with high hoppy blast. Resin notes and grassy. Not so fruity. Very hoppy wrecker.Good attenuation. Notes of caramel, pine and resin. Aftertaste: high bitterness and pine. Good beer not the best but really drinkable.

Banksiz (62) - Sacramento, California, USA - NOV 15, 2015
Nose mostly piney with a touch of herby smokiness and a bit of eatery fruitiness as it warms up and breathes. Bitter, good hop flavor, pleasant mid-weight mouth feel. Nice bitter finish with no harshess, mainly hop flavor. A well-done IPA.

"Pretty copper body with a thick creamy beige head. The aroma and hop content were a little disappointing, but nice none the less. i was expecting a little more strength in both areas. However it has a nice mouthfeel, the taste was well balanced, slightly sweet and not bitter. A very soild IPA,

sulawang (773) - British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 6, 2015
Visual: Pours yellow orange with a small fine head, hazy layer of retention, lots and lots of fast streams. Nose: bright sweet citrusy malts, honey (lvl-7)-pungency Attack: thick, fine micro CO2, exceptionally smooth entry Mid-palate: continual creaminess, (lvl-6)-sweetness, tangy backdrop, (MAIN) orange, honey, toffee malt Finish: stealth soft bitter hops, malty clean finish. Summary: Inconceivably smooth. A zen-like balance of sweet, creamy, bitter, and alcohol. The finish could be slighter longer but otherwise flawless.

AgentAle (1236) - Alberta, CANADA - OCT 22, 2015
Aroma is passion fruit, citrus, lemongrass and grapefruit. The taste is sweet malts and a similar hop profile and finishes shockingly smoothly. Appearance is a clear gold with a thin pearl head that retains fairly well. P

willisread (1283) - Tokyo, JAPAN - OCT 19, 2015
Bottle from Stone in Asagaya. Pours a clear orange with a medium-sized off-white head. Grass, twigs and resin on initial nose, but as it warms up lots of orange marmalade, grapefruit and tangerine come out. Juicy citrus with some malty sweetness, but a solid dry bitter finish that lingers. Classic-style IPA.

dhatton (234) - Mendham, New Jersey, USA - SEP 25, 2015
Pours murky golden body with thick white foam. Nose is sharp citrus, grapefruit, florals, and grass. Juicy apricot and peach taste. Fruity sweetness fades into a piney bitterness. Drinkable and highly enjoyable.

maekchu (2905) - Hirakata, JAPAN - SEP 24, 2015
Bottle from World Beer Market (Sake no Taniguchi). Big fat piney nose, with heavy caramel drippings, grapefruit, some tropical fruit -- all deep and pungent. Cloudy dusky gold, thick white head. Caramel, thick and rich and tasty, hopping enters in mid palate and transforms the caramel chunkiness into a pleasant stew, perfectly seasoned. Moderately long bitter tracks.Solid, complete, and satisfying. It’s nearly a caramel bomb, but it’s saved by the bittering hops. A great IPA.
