Brewed by:
Bear Republic Brewing Co.
California, United States

Style: American Brut IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.20%

Availability: Limited (brewed once)

Notes / Commercial Description:
A new style of beer that is sweeping through the Bay Area craft beer community and beyond. Ours is deftly hopped with Galaxy and Hallertau Blanc for a fruit forward tropical nose and low bitterness. Like the bubbly French wine this beer is, bone dry and extra carbonated

My first Brut IPA. Looks and feels like sparking wine. Very dry. Not a ton of hop flavor - some citrus perhaps. And could I be imagining that white grape flavor...or is it just the power of suggestion. Overall, I'm not convinced this is an IPA but I will reserve judgment until I've had a few more in the "Brut" style.

Straw yellow in color with a quarter inch of creamy eggshell white on top. Heavy lacing. The aroma is of pine. I’m tasting faint pine and light crackery malt. The mouth is bone dry and crisp.

On-draught @ Falling Rock Taphouse, Denver, CO.

Soft. Nice hop profile. Not real dry.

Bear Republic nailed it with the Brut Squad! No harsh IPA bite, yet still hoppy. I dig it!

After having this beer a couple more times I slightly downgraded my ratings. Still a really good beer, and maybe my score is still a little too high, but just thought I'd revise my review.
