This beer poured a hazy amber with a one finger high off-white head. The head dissipated to a thick and sticky lace that coated the top of the beer and the sides of the glass. Visible in the bottle and at the end of the pour was hop sediment. The initial smell of the beer was really something that I would find on a DIPA, heavy pine and citrus with a slight metallic zang. The initial taste of the beer was that of heavy resin, pine, citrus which lead to the rye notes and finished bitter and dry. The brew had a medium body with light to medium carbonation.
What really surprised me here was how this beer really performed like a DIPA. The flavors were bold and straight to the point. The body was very smooth and dessert like. Overall this was a nice beer and I'll have to check out the rest of the beers that Bear Republic has to offer.
