Bang on pale ale enjoyed at the Tap Room. Light golden colour, lacey,easy smooth mouthfeel. Citrus orange bitterness. Good drinkability. No astringency at well. This apparently will become their main pale ale. Above average bodied and medium hoppiness.

Bear Republic Grand-Am American Pale Ale
12 oz. brown bottle, no apparent freshness dating.
Bear Republic's Grand-Am is done in their typical style: richly malty, loaded with bright hops, and focused. Also, it appears at least partially unfiltered, and it has excellent head retention and lacing.
The malt is a basic golden base but with some breadth to it. You get some sweet, almost doughy notes at first, but the hop flavor and bitterness soon beat that into submission. The hops initially appear as bright citrus and soft pine, but then you find a wider, grassy and minty undertone. Yeast steps in and adds a touch of fruitiness and some drying mineral character. It's solidly bitter, and the alcohol lends a drying touch as well. I lingers in the finish, quite dry, with some piney and minty hops.
It's a straight-forward, well made, perfectly balanced, full flavored, fresh and unfiltered American Pale Ale. You can't go wrong with this one!

Growler filled on Nov 18 and consumed on Nov 22 poured in to tulip.
A - Medium yellow/orange with one finger of dirty white head.
S - Moderate bitterness up front with citrus and pine aromas and a fairly prominent sweet caramel malt backbone.
T - Moderate bitterness with grapefruit, orange peel and pine flavours. The malt base adds a big malt sweetness; fairly well balanced overall. Some light spice is present as well. A dry, bitter finish.
M - Medium body, dry. Lots of sticky hop oils. Light carbonation.
