This fine IPA is brewed at the Bear Republic Brewery in Healdsburg Cloverdale CA. It carries a7% ABV, and is available year around.
This beer poured a nice copper color in the glass and produced nice head that left lace on the glass while enjoying. It has a nice hoppy aroma to it that consisted of piney, and citrus hops. The taste of this beer is very reminiscent of the aroma and it has a nice slightly bitter hop finish while carrying a very nice balance and mouthfeel.
Overall I found this to be a very nice IPA and I would recommend you give it a try should this brewery be distributed near you.
