This beer surpised me... in a GOOD way. I was just expecting another red ale, I should have paid more attention to the brewer bear republic they never let me down. So I pop the top off this 22 and I immediately smell those mouthwatering west coast hops. I liked this beer before I even tasted it. Pours a nice red color with a thick tan head. Aroma is a bit sweet with the malt, but also a bit of citrus and pine with the hops. The flavor is quite unique- I like the fact that I can taste the hops and malt individually, they are not blended like most beers. Flavor is also very earthy. Nice lacing down the glass.

Pours with a gorgeous red and brown. A large light tan head covers thies beauty! Nice sweet smoky character of tobacco to the aroma. It also smells of cinnamon and some carmel. Very beautiful aroma. The taste has some subtle tobacco with oak and some light sweetness of bubblegum. Overall a very solid brew. Got this in a trade, thanks a lot Flipbrewer!!

Bottled. Ruby with beautiful rich, firm head. Lychee aroma. Sweet with solid, rounded malt profile and some salty licorice. Resiny salty, bitter finish. Another solid Bear Republic offering!

Reddish brown appearance. Taste is fairly bold and hoppy but not overpowering. Rather crisp and refreshing.

Bottle. Mahagony color with a big beige head. Roasted malt and citrus hop aroma. Very good and surprising hop flavor (citrus and some pine) combining wih roasted malt. A little plum fruitiness in the background. Smooth flavor that mostly works, but I can see Id get tired of it.

Pours deep ruby red with thick tan head. Nose is hoppy. somewhat sweet with almost citrus-like character. Flavor has a nice balance of malt and bitterness. There is a tingle on the tongue. Woodsy, pinelike finish. No typical red here.

Mahogney color with a large fluffy off white head. Aroma is of malts, rye, and some light smoke. Malty, some smokey peat notes, piney hop bitterness. Well balanced.

Auburn/brown and makes a thick off white head. Laces nicely down the glass. Not much aroma to speak of, slight malt character. Flavor starts off hoppy strong and finishes very mild. Nice balance here between hop and malt. I taste a bit of a woodlike character here. Palate is thick and creamy, leaves a light coating as it goes down. It is incredibly smooth and easy to drink.

Holy hops batman - not that thats a bad thing. Beautiful copper colour with a fairly minimal head. Good hop/malt blend throughout with some sweetness and some citric bitterness. Nice balanced medium-bitter linger to it as well. Cheers to IPFreely and DougShoemaker.
