Picked up a bottle at Jungle Jim's in Cincinnati. Never had any Bear Republic beers before; they enjoy a good reputation.
Pours orange with a slight haze, medium head with dense bubbles and good retention. Aroma is mostly hops with a little malt in the background, citrus notes dominate. Flavor displays a nice balance between hop flavor (citrus and a little mint) and bitterness, with a fairly solid malt backbone,
Overall, a very respectable American IPA - nothing I'd go out of my way for but worth sampling if you have the chance.
