3.2/5 rDev -24.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3
tightly packed cap of foam, a lovely finger size hat, great lacing, clean orange hue with a smattering of carbonation in no sort of hurry to arrive at the top destination, looks good for the style
smells like a souped up amber, spicy malts, some hops (herbal), a bit underwhelming overall
a sharp bite of hops and then it melds into an almost syrupy malt flavor, this has a lingering almost medicinal type hop signature - not your typical west coast hop experience, the ABV is noticeable in the afterglow but not so much in the sipping, this does have a really nice weight to it compared to many DIPAs but unfortunately the flavor lacks a punch I am looking for in the style
bear repub makes some great beers at some usually incredibly reasonable prices... this just isn't one of them
