Originally rated on 12/30/08. XP poured a good looking hazy copper body, small head and not much lace though. Aroma of citrus hops, flavor had some malt notes to go along with the hops, slightly bitter but that faded quickly. Overall its a pretty good beer, an above average pale ale.

With Z and M, on her first night back home, pours a rusty deep orange color with an ephemeral beige head. Nose is light citrus and rather bland. Taste is caramel, with sweet malt. Finish is dry with a sweet toffee malty ending. Average! Quaff Score 7 / 10

Bomber. Pours a copper orange with an off white head and aroma of hops and malt. Taste is of malt and caramel with hops, citrus, and resin notes into the dry, slightly bitter finish.

"yet another standout effort from Bear Republic. This isn’t a phenomenal beer, but it’s significantly better (more aromatic and more flavor) than most pales. Light bodied and enjoyable. 6/09 better malt backbone than most pales without overpowering the lively hops. "

65cl bottle (retrieved from 08/2013 Midwest jpg backlog - CHI 01/9/2013). Orange infused ginger ale of a lean and effervescent APA. Great showcasing of floral hops, easily drinkable, light yet juicy, well balanced with biscuit-dry malts and low abv.

The beer pours a little darker than golden with a white head. There is an aroma of floral and spruce hops combined with cereal grains. There is a distinctive caramel flavor with floral overtones. It has a sweet aftertaste with a touch of bitter.
