A - Pours a deep, brownish amber with an off-white, creamy head. The head is somewhat small, but retains well and leaves some nice lacing behind.
S - Piney, citric hops noticeable at first, balanced by some toasty, caramel malt. I generally prefer red ales on the hoppier side, and this one has a nice, bold hop character.
T - Rich, toasty caramel malts come through up front, leading into bold piney, grassy, and slightly citric hop flavors. The hops add a decent bit of bitterness to this brew, but the ample malt keeps it feeling very balanced overall. Finish lends some more bitterness with a nice blend of the toasty malts and pine lingering into the aftertaste.
M - Medium-bordering on full-bodied with a very smooth feel. The carbonation is well done on this one.
D - A very tasty red ale with BIG flavor. I really like how this one manages to combine big hop flavor with great balance. Another very solid offering from Bear Republic.

Had on-tap at Westville Pub Asheville. Served in a Southern Tier pint glass.
A- Pours a reddish light brown color with a 1/4 inch light tan head that retains decently before becoming a thin ring around the edge of the glass and a mostly full sheet of surface foam. Resilient sheet of lacing clings to the glass.
S- Sweet smelling malt with a grassy hop fume that's so inviting.
T- Big assertive hop flavor with a somewhat sweet red ale malt profile. Hits the spot. Lingering piney bitterness. Alcohol shows itself just enough. Notes of caramel and brown sugar.
M- Dry and sharp with medium carbonation and a fullish body.
O- One of my favorite red ales and probably my favorite Bear Republic beer to be completely honest (I have not had Apex).
Serving type: on-tap
