look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4
On-tap at Beachwood I,
A: Pours a translucent goldenrod to yellow orange with a full creamy white head, nice thick lace.
S: Very nice, with notes of grapefruit and pineapple, pungent, sticky West Coast feel.
T: The taste rains it in. Solid malt flavour with a hint of ethanol. White grapefruit, melon rind, passion fruit form the hop flavours. Tasty, but not as good as I expected with the nose.
M: Medium to full-bodied, resiny, big hop character, slick at times.
O: A well made Double IPA, not surprised since this is Bear Republic whe're taking about here. Well worth a try for fans of the West Coast style.
Serving type: on-tap

Pours with a dense, tan head. Color is a cloudy amber. Has a thick, creamy and sweet middle with a resinous wrapping. Candied sugar exists and some syrup is left on the lips. Some orange rind is in there as well. Alcohol is sharp. Big, slow and brilliant drinking.

A: The beer is hazy yellowish amber in color and has no visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high off white head that died down a bit, leaving lots of lacing on the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of citrusy hops—oranges in particular—stand out in particular along with hints of pine resin hops.
T: The taste has flavors of pale malts along with notes of grapefruit and pine resin hops.
M: It feels medium-bodied and slightly crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer seems to be maltier compared to other Imperial IPAs but has an interesting mix of hops that lend some. complexity to the smell and taste. It is rather drinkable considering the strength as the alcohol is well masked from the taste.
