Bear Republic Brewing (Cloverdale, CA)

"This California-style IPA is all about juicy hop flavor and aroma with a full body and mild bitterness that combines the new IPA aesthetic with West Coast tradition. Juicy yeast esters and bright and fruity Mosaic and Meridian hops meld perfectly with Cascade hops for what is sure to become a California classic." Full, rich citrus flavors without going too far. A nice bitterness at the finish. If the idea was to make a west coast version of a New England-style IPA, then mission accomplished. Excellent combination of both styles. ABV 6%, 60 IBU Hops: Cascade, Meridian, Mosaic Malt: Pale Barley, Oat Yeast: Barbarian
