This was a very good IPA. golden/dark amber color with a decent head that lasted. smelled yummy and sweet like most IPAs. I thought this one had most of the floral/bitter qualities that I have learned to expect and love. It seemed to end slightly strong and thick and wasn’t really smooth, but it took me awhile to drink so it might have just sat too long. To sum it up, this was a really good American IPA and if I find it around Texas again I’ll certainly buy it again.

pours a nice brown golden in color with a nice thin layer of head left floating and a thin layer of floating particles in the bottom of the glass. smell is of hops, sweet fruit, honey, and flowery grass. taste is definitely hops first some citrus fruits, and flowers. nice creamy top stayed through tasting with a slightly bitter hops bite and grapefruit flavors as it warmed. nice brew and fairly priced.

Bottle purchased at Corral Liquors in Granite City, IL. Pours a hazy gold with some floating particles and a dense, creamy, ivory head that leaves nice lacing as it descends the glass. Fruity/citrus hops dominate the nose with a solid caramel malt backing. Medium-bodied and creamy with a nice bitter finish at the back of the tongue. The flavor is a solid resiny/citrus hop front with a mild malt backing and pleasantly bitter finish. This is a top shelf IPA.

Wow, one of the better IPAs that I have tried! Nice amber color. You can smell the piney/floral hops. The smell is BANG! Very bitter after taste, just the way I like it.

Wow, that was really good. First off, if I was blindfolded I would swear it was a pine cone. Not much special about the appearance, with tan/orange look and about a half inch head. Taste is strong hops with much more pine and floral tastes. I will bring this one camping to experience the pine in the pines, for sure!

Thanks to Beer_Hawk for this from his cellar clearing tasting. A orange pour with a slightly off white head and excellent lacing. A very nice aroma of citrusy hops. A flavor of rich malt the citriusy hops and a slight fruitiness that reminds me of apples. An excellent bitter finish. A smooth even palate that isn’t water and is pretty full but is just a tad foamy not really fizzy. Overall almost everything an IPA ahould be a solid beer. thanks steve

Found this one bottled in St. Charles, Illinois. Hazy deep orange pour with a thick, tan head. Wonderfully potent nose of citrusy and floral hops. Sweet, fruity malts balance out a really amazing hoppiness. Finished strong, clean and bitter. This is a phenominal IPA and an excellent beer from Bear Republic.

deep aroma. light gold coloring. i’ll level with you. if you have had good ipa’s you know what you are in for. you aren’t in for more than that. definitely delicious but nothing about it makes you think about it differently than those other ipa’s you love.
