GuideDogSaint (1776) - Xiamen, CHINA - JUN 1, 2017
355ml bottle at True Bearing Alehouse, Xiamen. Pours hazy golden with a white head. Aroma of pine and citrus. Addition of malt in the taste. Sweet finish with lingering bitterness. Nice.

Hazy deep golden hue with a pillowy ivory head. Magnificent fresh tropical juicy nose that’s like a fresh resiny hop cone picked off the vine with crisp lupulin oils and vegetal green leafy hoppy tones. Brisk pale malty golden flavor that’s slightly biscuity and piney tropical citrusy bitter with plenty of fresh hop resins, and a cool mellow balanced finish.

This is such a welcome difference from other ipa. But you can definitely tell it’s a very special ipa. I love ipa beers, this costs more but is sooo well worth it. Try it for sure

12oz bottle - it pours a hazy full golden yellow with s med fluffy off white head. The aroma has array of hop notes - citrus, peach, melon, jackfruit and a hint of grass. Flavors are a mix of standard IPA and the newer juicy IPA styles. The flavor is more bitter than the aroma. Pretty delicious overall

12 oz. bottle. Pours a medium, well retained off white head, with extensive lacing, over a hazy light gold (SRM 4) body........nose is pine, resin, heavy fruits with melon, mango tones, dankness all from the hops, light honey, toasted bread, from the malts, balance to the hops......taste is lightly floral honey sweet, with mild toast, wheat, rye spice, heavy pine, resin, dank allium, fruits including orange, tangerine, mango, melon, finishing with moderate hop bitterness, balance to the hops......mouth feel, medium body, moderate alcohol warmth, low carbonation. This is an utterly hop dominated beer in aroma and flavor. The various malts are just adequate to balance the hop contribution. The only flaw is the allium tones from the dankness. BJCP 8/3/16/5/8

Tang-amber color sporting an airy beige head. Lovely burst of juicy PNW hops creates a bouquet thick with forest and pine resin, as well as a touch of citrus. The body delivers pine resiny bitterness, that is quite enjoyable. Lingering bitter-twang on the palate.

Zeswaft (1785) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 19, 2017
Bottle. Pours slightly cloudy and dark gold. An abundance of tropical fruit and citrus aroma. Flavor is a mixture between floral and tropical fruits. Low maltiness but a slight sweet kiss on the finish. Really excellent.

AWISLguy (3375) - Wisconsin, USA - MAY 14, 2017
12oz bottle from Three Cellars with no bottle date. IPA pour, fringey head. Aroma has with big citrus and pine, and some toffee. Taste is of sweet fruits, big bitter citrus, chewy pine resin and some toffee. This is big and chewy, quite bitter. Medium bodied with some alcohol presence, the blend is solid and the carbonation is constant. Finishes sweet fruity, with big bitterness back. This is a tasty interesting brew. 14.3

Excellent IPA from Bear Republic. It’s been a while since I’ve had the pleasure of sampling a new beer from this brewer. New ones from these guys are hard to find in eastern PA. The Hop Shovel pours a golden color with an ample white head with plenty of lacing around the inside of the glass. The aroma features some bubbly and lively hop notes, along with some bread, caramel, pale malt, wheat and rye. The flavors are really well-balanced with the wheat and rye to offset the prickly, lively and fruity hop notes.

PorterPounder (8316) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAY 6, 2017
Tallahassee, Fl - Market Square Liquors - 12 oz bottle. Hazy, light golden pour, fluffy snow white head, nice lacing. Spruce, coriander and some cat urine in the aroma. Flavor is solid with some tropical fruitiness, citrus bitterness, some nectarine fruitiness. Creamy, thick rich mouthfeel. Very solid. Been awhile since I’ve had something new from Bear Republic.
