From the Columbus gathering, brought by Sliffy. Browinish orange color with a light tan head. Citrusy-hopppy aroma paried with sweet malt. The flavor was similar, caramel malts with the grapefruity hops. Decent mouthfeel and body with a nice amount of balance.

bitbucket (2159) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - AUG 12, 2006
Bomber. Pours a dark amber red with a thick creamy, massively lacy yellow tan head. Citrus, flowers, fruit and caramel in the nose. Full body, almost syrupy, with moderate carbonation. Taste is much like the smell, but you can toss a touch of peat into the mix. Smooth grapefruit and piney bitterness in the dry, lingering finish. Amazing stuff.

vyvvy (3992) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - AUG 3, 2006
Pours dark brown with a reddish tint - more sediment in this than I expected. A sturdy tan head form on top and sticks around. Piney / woody hops are predominant on the aroma - there is some rich caramel background lingering in the background though. Thick body with a little bit of soft carbonation towards the end. Starts off with deep roasted malt with some smooth creaminess. The are sturdy woody hops in the initial taste, but they really come out in the finish. Aside from the forceful hop on the finish there is a ripple of caramel going through to keep it somewhat balance. This is a very nice strong ale. Another home run from Bear Republic.

Bomber. Turned out to be a benchwarmer in a trade with jrob--much to my delight. Pours deep brown to ebony. Steady planes of carbonation saunter up continuously (it’s thick). Huge dense turbulent tan head that settles to a foamy seastack in the middly of the glass. It laces the glass to an almost pornographic extent. Ultra sweet malts on the nose--caramel comes ringing through, and a little bit of that Crystal earth is there too. Mellow but deep fragrance. Lots of sweet malt flavor right from the attack--there’s enough there to capsize a smaller brew but this is balanced lusciously: citrus, spice, molasses. Clean hop finish. Amazing stuff. Nothing’s better than grabbing a beer you’ve never heard of off the shelf and having it turn out to be this good.

sliffy (2040) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUL 31, 2006
Bottle thanks to santa: Mahogany colored pour with a white head. Aroma of pine, citrus, caramel. Flavor, citrus and caramel were very prevailant, there was some brown sugar and some spiciness to liven things up as well. Best of the bear republics that I’ve had so far.

bgburdman9 (857) - Kettering, Ohio, USA - JUL 30, 2006
Columbus gathering beer#2. Brought by Sliffy. Very citrusy hoppy for an ASA. Smooth but a little over hoppy. Nice combo of malts and hops that overpowered. The end was very sweet.

stegosaurus (1882) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 9, 2006
Bottle sampled with Beerded-one. pours bronze with a light tan head. Aroma of citrusy pine hops & some caramel notes. Flavor is smooth, carbonated, slight sharp hops on your tongue, with a slight bitter finish. Great body, good brew.

eaglefan538 (2892) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - JUN 9, 2006
Poured a deep red-brown color, darker brown than I was expecting. The head was fantastic, almost Belgian pillowy, and full of lacing. The aroma was of caramel malts and pine-floral hops. Flavor was most like an amber ale, as the alcohol wasn’t strong at all. The malty base was deep and rich to support the floral-citrus hops in the flavor. If you’re a hop head, go for this one... hopped like an IPA, abv of an IPA, but with a strong amber malt base.
