It pours golden and clear with a white head. Head retention is moderate. The aromas are highlighted by citrus up front with tropical fruit and mango. Other aromas include low levels of rye. The flavors are highlighted by rye, tropical fruit, mango, and citrus. There are low levels of bread and very low levels of wheat in the background. The texture is smooth with a moderate body. The bitterness his high with a finish that is long lasting. Overall, this is a hop forward beer with a nice background support from the rye to give it a complex flavor.

Draft at Yardhouse. I usually love Bear Republic beers. This one is light orange-amber. It doesn’t have a head to speak of, but is well laced. It’s super juicy-citrusy, almost like a lemon soda or flat-out orange juice. It’s a bit too off kilter for me. I’m looking for Annette Funnicello in an OJ commercial.

Gold, mostly clear but lots of floaties. Ginormous, pillowy white foam. Smells like pot, resin, and some subtle bready, caramel notes. Definitely a hop forward beer, and not a lot of sweetness. Green, fresh hops and a dry, crisp finish. Nice. DocLock (10647) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 13, 2017

Chuck’s 85th, Seattle. White cream head, lightly clouded orange/darker gold body. Fruity apple aroma, green hops. Some bitterness on sip, resin forward hops, rather heavy and old school. Fruity, heavy hop. Lightly spiced, complex malt base. Plenty of cider flavors. Tasty, old school bitter double IPA. Nice beer.

Hazy golden, decent head. Bear Republic is a favorite of Jazz88’s, but rather than Racer 5, he went with Hop Shovel. It has a plentiful citrus aroma and expected vibrant flavors. Solid body. Decent. Bottle. thetmaxx (917) - West Sacramento, California, USA - JUN 9, 2017
On tap at the brewery. Thin head, thin lacing. Slightly cloudy? Aroma is kinda dank. This one has a lot of bitterness, some citrus note, some spice note. Pretty balanced though. Palate is dry and kind of oily finish. Pretty good!! IndianaRed (4544) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUN 8, 2017
Bottle pours out a slightly hazy pale light golden full lasting white head. Lots of fruity hop flavors. Piney aromas. Plenty of bitterness . Smooth feel a full bodied. Great IPA AssKicker (464) - Strasbourg, FRANCE - JUN 6, 2017
Couleur blonde très légèrement cuivrée, mousse généreuse et tenace. Nez d’abord étrange, puis sur le blé, puis sur le seigle. Ce dernier apporte une légère texture grasse en bouche, ce qui est loin d’être désagréable. Mais qu’à cela ne tienne, les papilles prennent quand même chère avec une amertume plutôt virulente en fin de bouche. Niveau arômes, on tape sur les fruits tropicaux, mais avec modération puisque des notes herbacées sont également assez présentes. Bref, c’est sympa, mais c’est violent, mais c’est ce que doit être une IPA. ttoadee (1477) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUN 5, 2017
Golden pour, decent white head. Nose is rye and wood. Bitter. Middle is hint of marmalade, spicy rye, medium kilned malt. Finish is spicy and bitter. Very complex beer.
