4.13/5 rDev -1.4%
a beautiful amber/golden pour with 2 fingers of fluffy/frothy off white head. smells of vanilla, bourbon, pine. taste is mainly pine with hints of honey. grapefruit in the finish.
medium body with a nice creamy texture throughout. mild carbonation. sweet finish leaves you wanting more.
a great ipa with a friendly gesture abv percentage. i wouldn't mind a few of these in a row, even though it's not a session ale! very warming, which probably wasn't the BEST idea for today's 95 degree and sunny day, but it's fucking delicious so it's totally worth the sweaty forehead i now have.

4.25/5 rDev +1.4%
A: Pours a clear golden/ dark copper. Head could be a bit better but it leaves some nice lacing.
S: Smells of earthy and spicy hops, slight citrus. Tropical aromas, fruity sweetness.
T: Hops bear the same characteristics as the nose let on and with an additional minty touch, but the malts and fruity aspects are much more prevalent. Slight pineapple and possibly mango? Very nice. Finishes with a slightly toasted grain. Not overly bitter and very well balanced.
M: Light/medium body, slightly syrupy, and very smooth. Hop resin is noticeable and sticks to the palate.
Overall: An awesome American IPA. Thank you, Bear Republic.

A fantastic IPA. Cloudy orange/copper pour with a thick white head. Hop aroma shines with a bit of sweetness in there. Flavor is grapefruit, toasted malts, and kind of a woody taste. Very drinkable!! Excellent balance in this beer, will continue to purchase this one.
