A good impersonation of what a standard Cali IPA should be. Nice vanilla colored head and beautiful dark golden color. Slightly floral in the aroma, but nothing spectacular. Hops bitterness was well balanced with the malts, with a nicely carbonated finish.

Solid brew from B.Republic. Very crisp and i like the hop combination. Very drinkable and just an all around good beer for any time of the day.

Angeloregon (2055) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 11, 2007
From a bottle poured a creamy and coating thin off white head atop a tawny-copper body. Bright and comforting fruity hopped nose that lead perfectly into the first taste and maintained as the beer warmed. Full-bodied creamy balance. One of the most inspiring west coast IPAs in a while! Great finish with hints of caramel, citrus and pure joy. very very enjoyable beer!

RagallachMC (631) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - APR 10, 2007
22oz bottle. Aroma: Huge hop aroma with a loads of pine, resin, and fruit (grapefruit, peach, pineapple). The faintest whiff of malt behind all that hop. Appearance: Light Amber in color and slightly hazed. Off-white head was full and foamy with good retention. Good lacing. Flavor: A light bready malt with a touch of caramel, and then the hops kick in with a strong dose of pine and resin. Followed closely by grapefruit, pineapple, and peach. Some grass into the finish. Bitterness bites nicely, but isnt excessive. Very dry finish. Palate: Medium bodied. Medium carbonation. Overall: Solid West Coast IPA. Packed full of hops, but doesnt kill you with bitterness. Really enjoyed it.

UPDATED: APR 28, 2007 22 oz. bottle - strong aromas and inch head upon pouring; golden in color with strong hops; slightly bitter; new (and higher) impression after enjoying on tap at the mystic theater

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 3, 2007
(On tap) Clear, fully golden with a creamy, off-white head leaving laces. Extremely fat hop aroma with lots of astringent grapefruit and pine. Medium body with a lightly sweet maltbase and then an incredible, fruity bitterness. 230307

brianbuntz (49) - Santa Monica, California, USA - APR 2, 2007
Pours a mostly clear amber. Aroma of peach and apricot. The hops lend a predictable bitterness for a West Coast IPA, but this beer has strong piney undertones. The body is a bit thin. Overall, a sold California IPA.

UPDATED: OCT 8, 2015 22oz. bottle. Pours a nice amber color with a good head. Smells good and tastes even better. A perfect balance of hops and one of the best IPAs I have had.

22oz bottle, thanks Bmartin08, smells fantastic and looks great too, tastes just like cascade hops should, nice and balanced with a little zip on the tail end. a good west coast IPA, yet another beer i could drink daily if it was available
