Bear republic makes some fine IPAs and this is no exception. Nice hops throughout, I am a fan of Citra for sure. Not quite as good as the Racer 15, but still delicious. kathouse (1942) - LAS VEGAS, Nevada, USA - JUL 21, 2017
Nice looking with orange and pine aromas. Beer has a smooth bitterness allowing hop flavor to come through. bb (9900) - Alamo, California, USA - JUL 18, 2017

355ml bottle. Hazed glowing orange gold pour. For a 10.4%er you can’t really top this, rocket fuel but sooo much resinous hops, just a mouthful of hops, not an intrusive malt character. Nice to see the west cost striking back a bit. thornecb (6198) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 11, 2017
Pours hazy gold into a shaker. White head with medium retention recedes leaving soapy spiders. Caramel and resin aromas. Sweet with caramel and resin front to back. Lasting hot caramel finish. BillKismet (4170) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 4, 2017
Tan-bodied, creamy froth cover. Pungently catty and grapefruit nose, which continues into the body to deliver a juicy, sharp hoppiness, with a touch of resin. Solid IPA, just not a flavor profile I particularly enjoy. Lowe1983 (1664) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - JUN 15, 2017
Pours a cloudy amber color with an off-white head. Aroma is lots of citrus and floral hops with clearance malts and rye. Flavor is citrus hops with a finish of the floral hops and caramel malts and rye. Finishes with a little warming. commonmac (1382) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 6, 2017
Bottle picked up at Haskells in Maple Grove and consumed at home with dubtully in a Moeder Lambic glass. Very attractive deep golden orange (more apricot in color than golden). Aroma is a little tropical and citrus with no real hint of pine or resin. Taste is predominantly sweet, malt forward contrary to what the brewery indicates on the bottle. More balanced than anticipated. Sweet first, hoppy towards the middle, and seemingly ends on the sweeter end of the spectrum. Alcohol is well hidden making this a dangerous affair. Tropical and citrus fruit are in the equation. I will find my way fast back to this one again very soon.
