On tap at the Bear Republic tasting at the Rubicon tonight.

This may be a newer version of the Racer X that Ricardo is experimenting with. Well worth it, if you can get your hands on it.

A - Deep orange, nice head, leaves a beautiful star in the middle of the glass. Nice legs too.

S - Flower, grass, and more flowers. Some malt in the back too.

T - Delicious. Flowers, grapefruit, grass, and malts. Dreamy.

M - Perfect balance. No alcohol.

D - Farly flawless for a double. Can I propose to the beer?

Had on tap at the Moan and Dove. The drink had an incredible hazy amber look to it. Very thick lacing to the drink as well. This drink had a massive, massive hoppy aroma to it. Flavors were particular sweet with an earthy tone to it. This earthy-aspect came with the mouthfeel which was rather thick full-bodied. Overall, a rather awesomely mammoth drink.

Had on tap at the ginger man in NYC- poured a slightly hazy golden orange color with a half finger white head; decent retention and a tiny bit of lacing.

Smell is very enticing- I smell piney hops and black tea (not unsimilar to sorachi ace). Nice bready malt sweetness with a bit of warming alcohol on the waY down. Excellent taste and perfectly balanced.

Surprisingly quaffable- good medium body with moderate carbonation. Buy if you find it!!

Pours a clouded orange brown with a creme head. Nose is perfumed hoppy bitterness. Flavor is extremely smooth. Unbelievably smooth. There is an underlying bitterness, but what maintains the most solid presence is a smooth slightly sweet citrus tone. Great balance of bitter, earthy, citrus, and sweetness. I can't really think of any way it could be improved. The alcohol just barely touches the tongue, but I don't think it's a detriment at all. Feel is smooth on liquid with a lower carbonation to it. Like I said. Damn drinkable.

Served from a 64oz. growler, acquired in a trade from Wespatrick (thanks man!), into my Bruery snifter (11/20/09) at an appropriate temperature.

A: Pours a glowing golden orange with a two finger thick and creamy head. Very nice looking beer indeed.

S: Exceptional aroma of a rich and semi-sweet hop nectar with layers of orange marmalade, pine, grapefruit, and slightly sweet malt backbone. This is exactly what a west coast DIPA should smell like.

T: The aroma transfers into the taste as the palate is hit with a variety of hop flavors including; pine, grapefruit, orange, and tropical fruit surrounded by a layer of an orange marmalade nectar which intensified as it warms. A semi-sweet malt rounds out the flavor and allows for a nice balance while still maintaining a degree of bitterness in the finish.

M: A medium to full-bodied DIPA with a chewy yet slick character with a bitter finish that diminishes as the beer warms.

D: We will just say that that 64oz. growler is no more. This beer was exceptionally drinkable as the 8.7%abv. was expertly hidden. Any west coast DIPA fan with have no problem handling several of these.

Overall this beer was an excellent treat from Bear Republic and an outstanding DIPA. I just wish that Bear Republic bottled this or one of their other DIPAs. Highly Recommended.

Served at VIP reception at Stone's 14th Anniversary party. This may be one of the biggest, thickest and most intense beers I've tried....and I thought it was great!

A rich dark orange with a white head.

Nose is simply huge pineapple and sweet apricot with undertones of lemon pie - assertive and very appealing.

Mouthfeel is thick and rich but just misses being too syrupy-a feeling of richness and quality.

Flavors are just plain hit you over the head intense! Big sweet orange/lemon citrus character followed by sweet candied apricots and pineapple with mano undertones.

The bitter is just in your face! Huge citrus skin bitter with pine but with a honey character.

Complex and huge with a pine bitter honeyed finish.

This is a must try and a wonderful effort from Bear Republic-bottle this one...please!
