On tap at Taps. Pours a slightly hazy yellow amber color with a bit of head. Huge tropical fruit aroma. Smooth. Tropical fruit flavors. A little harsh at the end as the hop bitterness lingers past the fruit.

ACHops (1527) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 14, 2015
On tap @ Chucks 85th. Pour medium pale orange, slightly hazy, with thin lacy white head. Aroma is light sweet caramel malt and juicy fresh citrusy hops. Taste is medium caramel malt with more heft than the nose; and big piney bitter hops. Lingers slightly bitter on the finish. Like the hops more on the nose, and the malt more on the taste. Just another excellent big citrusy IPA. Different from Racer 5, in a good way, but not quite ready to commit that sacrilege. Love new stuff from Bear Republic, they dont seem to score up IPAs.

Draught at the Bear Republic, Healdsburg, CA.
Slightly cloudy yellow golden colour with a small white head. Fruity sweetness, citrusy and piney hops, wood and dry maltiness in an excellent aroma. Yummy! Fruity, grapefruity and piney hops, dryness, bitterness and mild maltiness in the flavour. Tasty.

Draft pour at the Sixgill. Pours a semi cloudy golden color with a ton of head and lacing. Thick, cream body with a hop headlined aroma and flavor as expected. Nice piney finish. Pretty good IPA. What the hell is a hop shovel anyway?
