Allright, got to enter two new Bear Republic beers this year! This one is fantastic...(as are almost all BR beers when they go big). This is huge. Strong presence of pine, bubble gum, and grassiness...a lot of hops went into this baby. Resinous presence in taste and a bit on the palate but in a good way. A fresh oak taste is right there with it, but doesnt overwhelm. Malt is good, but serves more to show off the huge amount of hops. It all comes together really well. While the name still triggers a memory of the old video game, this a a great beer.
