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

(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

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 IPA’s 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

Light watery yellow pour. Aroma is grapefruit with slight grass. Grapefruit hoppy profile in the flavor. Not as much grass as is evident in the nose. Delightful IPA that isn’t over the top or over-bearing.

Good strong hoppy brew. Really enjoy beers from Bear Republic, one of the best in CA.

Cloudy golden body, rocky cream-coloured head. Extraordinarily hoppy aroma. Bitter flavour, hop-py!

can8ianben (1538) - State College, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 21, 2007
Deliciously hoppy. Sampled on tap in DC. Orange colour, nice frothy head bursing with pine and citrus. Beer is very smooth and subtly dry and bitter in the finish. Sweet on the lips, and every well done.
