On tap at Toronado, 05.22.04 Big pine (amirillo?) hoppiness emanates from a thick, lasting, beige head. Cardboard maltiness at first, smooths out to a clean and cleansing hop middle/finish. Refreshing and easy to drink 7%er. A very popular beer everywhere I saw it on tap.

This is a clean amber looking ale with a large tan head. There is a quick hit of carmel malt followed by a burst of sharp citrus hop aroma. The flavor is strongly bitter, which I enjoyed, although I expected more malt. There was a faint carmel malt presence, but it didn’t quite balance the hop taste. Regardless, I enjoyed the malt bill in this one. One that left you asking for another sip. Thanks to mardermax

Pours a brown color with a thin head. Aroma of hops, caramel and alcohol. Flavors of hops, alcohol and caramel. Nice but not impressive.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 13, 2004
Appearance: a dark, plummy red color, with a good 1/2" head, bubbly, frothy, tan colored. Aroma: sharp, awake & alive, vibrant and terribly hoppy. Wow! Fills the entire head and buzzes the senses: dark fruits, darkly roasted, and feeling much like a barleywine. Hops are predominant in the palate, and on the tongue, mouth, cheeks, and back of the throat! Malt is full, strong, powerful. The ABV seems a tease for this, at 6.%, it feels stronger! It claims to be a "bastard" Scottish ale, but feels like a barleywine. At any rate, all through this brew I could only report "delicious, delicious, delicious" and an occasional outbreak of "tasty, tasty, tasty"!

22 oz bottle. Red and clear with a tan head. Piney hop aroma. Big caramel malty flavor. Very hoppy but not over hoppy. Hops linger throughout beer. Smooth palate. Nicely drinkable. Great.

MaiBockAddict (1497) - Good Beer Bar Deprived, New Jersey, USA - JUN 8, 2004
22 oz bomber. Pours red and clear with a tan head. Piney hop aroma. Chinook? Flavor has a big carmel malt component and a big aggressive hop in the background that lingers. Now, this is not over hopped and the malt shines through, so I am suspecting Chinook again. Rather smooth palate and nicely drinkable, almost reminds me of Arrogant Bastard.

MaxPower (961) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUN 4, 2004
Deep reddish-brown in color with a nice, thick creamy beige head that leaves sticky sheets of lace in my glass. Strong hoppy aromas of grapefruit and pine, citrus, bready and fruity flavors kind of like pineapple cake. Full bodied with a thick and creamy mouthfeel, another good one from this brewery.

tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 3, 2004
Citrusy-orange pine hops in the nose with strong supporting caramel maltiness. Notes of red pepper - slightly pleasantly vegetal. Deep brown with suspended yeast and tan head that diminishes to just cover and ring. Very short flavour with long-lasting bitterness - orange/pine hops and roasted malts. Hops balance the sweet malt. Smooth mouthfeel. Medium body. Assertive bitterness and dry finish makes it feel lighter. Bottle (enjoyed with beerbuzzmontreal, MartinT and Rastacouere).

Clear auburn with a fluffy, off-white head. Thick hoppy aroma of blood oranges, grapefruit, pine trees, grains and a little caramel. The body is a little thick but also creamy and carries the bitterness well. Rustic breads all over the flavor profile with orange marmalade, pine resin and chewy caramel. At times I get this odd stinky cheese thing which isn’t good, but not as bad as one would think. Not my favorite offering from Bear Republic--very bitter without much balance and only decent flavors.
