Celebrating 15 years of Bear Republic Brewing Co., this IPA is brewed from an old recipe (batch 50!) that is malty and very hoppy, just the way our Brewmaster likes it.

Notes from my backlog: Pours a deep orange with a slight haze topped by a white film. Light caramel and pale malts in the nose. Some mild citrus and peach as well. Average carbonation wiht a light to medium body. Fruity and slightly sticky hops upfront with a mango/peach note. Towards the back it gets very piny and bitter. Slightly inky. High AA.. Not bad.

Tap at Rattle N Hum. Deep amber pour with a thick white head. The nose is kind of indistinct though - muted American hops with a touch of light hoppiness. A kiss of malt sweetness and straight up pale malt. Its really not all that good.

Draft @ Blind tiger. Amber brown pour with some tan head. Earthy, dry bittering hop aroma, also some malty influence. Flavor follows with equal malt and hop presence.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - MAY 10, 2010
Draft. Pours an amber body with an off white head. Earth y dry and brush like. Forest floor, leaf like bitterness. Tea really dry tone, like an over soaked bag of tea, very dry and very bitter. A mild malt tone with some light earth.

jredmond (7907) - New York, New York, USA - MAY 4, 2010
Draft at RnH in NYC with Andrew. Had this directly after the Apex. Pours a clear body as well. The aroma is delicious grapefruit hop. This was a bit maltier but that delicious, crisp hop taste was still present.

Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAY 2, 2010
Bear Republic Promo event at Blind Tiger. Pours a good clear woody amber mahogany with a nice lasting thin head. Aroma is herbal tea, mineral earth and light citrus hops with a medium crystal malt backbone, nutty toffee sweetness. Flavor is caramel and toast, crystal malts, some toffee, earthy flowery and tea-like bitterness and astringency from the hops a touch vegetal but finishes pretty clean. Ok.

DYCSoccer17 (3668) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 2, 2010
16 ounce sample on tap from the Davis Graduate. Aroma is metallic, somewhat musty, and rather herbal. Not overly aromatic, but pleasant enough. Amber-golden body with a smallish off-yellow head and fair lacing present. Wow - this is gritty chewy, malty, and chock-full of resins and some tannins. Very earthy, and somewhat metallic hoppy finish that is a bit dry for me. Very chewy.

ben4321 (6068) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - APR 26, 2010
Location: Tap at RnH, 4/2/10

Aroma: The nose on this one has some citrus, pine, and some earth
Appearance: It pours into the glass a dark caramel color
Flavor: The taste is pretty balanced, medium sweet, medium bitter
Palate: A medium bodied brew with a nice crisp mouthfeel
Overall Impression: A good, though a bit on the odd side, Double IPA. This beer is very nice, but I didnt feel as though it stacked up to the 11 or anywhere near the Racer X, which was spectacular. Still very good though.
