BOTTLE 50 CL as Bear State. Clear orange-amber, off-white head. The aroma id packed with tropical fruit - mango, passion fruit, peaches. Just a touch of fresh green hops. The taste is medium-sweet - pale malts and mango, with a dry pungent bitterness. It might be a bit too strong at 7% abv - got a little alco-heat in the finish. Very good.

LazyPyro (486) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JUN 22, 2016
500ml bottle as Bear State from Favourite Beers. Hazy pale orange colour with a two finger white head. Aroma of sweetish caramel malt, hops, fruit, pine, floral. Taste of sweet light malts with a slight earthiness, caramel, citrus, fruit, bitter hop finish. Fairly well balanced but it being billed as a west coast IPA surprises me as it feels more like a British one, the hops don’t stand out as much as I was expecting them to. Still, a nice IPA.

DylansDad (581) - North Shore, Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - JUN 3, 2016
Alcohol is extremely well hidden. Feels more like a 5% beer than 7%. Quite simple, it doesn’t try to be all things to all people, it’s a good stone-fruit and pine and grass ale with a nice more-ish bitterness lingering at the back. Nice.
