Hopped up (American style?) amber ale. Not overpowering hops but very strong. Red in color, but bitter in taste. Very different the fat tire that preceeded this and is actually lending more points to Fat Tire. Disclaimer : not a fan of hops.

Very nice reddish brown pour, head quickly disipates. Citrus, resiny hops meld into a great toasted caramel malt flavour. Body is rich, with loads of sweet bread that is backed by a prominent bitterness.

Pours a brownish red with a minimal head. Aroma is Sweet roasted malt and some citrucy hop notes. Taste follows the Aroma well with some spices upfront and hop notes lingering on the backend. Medium mouth feel. Awesome Brew!

Pretty damn good. Great bold taste. Nice malt/ citrus nose. Palate lingers with a wonderful bitter finish. Must try. I’m sad that Bear Republic is pulling out of the great state of Michigan. Lucky for us we have many great beers to drown our sorrows in. Maybe we’ll see you again Bear......

A very good beer with enough hops and malts to enjoy both worlds. Dark amber with a red tint and medium cream colored head. Aroma is hops and brown sugar. Hoppy,sweet and just good beer.

EyeAmBaldman (187) - Illinois, USA - APR 4, 2014
Pours dark brown with a one finger off white head. Aroma is all citrus and hops. Taste is kind of like a Scottish Ale on steroids. It’s a dark ale with a ton of hop taste. Bitter on the back end. Not bad.

I like this one. The aroma is mostly hops, which made me leery to try it, not being a fan of happy beer. But the taste is nicely balanced between hops and malt. You get the hop flavor at the front, but it smooths out at the finish. Each sip intensifies this. Slightly stronger than I prefer but I was pleasantly surprised by this one.
