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.

Appearance is a clear yellowish copper color. This offering is slightly effervescent with a finger of fluffy head that seemed to linger forever and left rings of lace behind reminiscent of a nitro-tapped beer. The malt profile seems solid, if not remarkable and the hoppiness is good for a single IPA.
This offering does suffer from an odd trace of booziness which makes it less drinkable than some higher ABV DIPAs that I’ve sampled in the past.
Serving type: on-tap
