Bear Republic Racer 5 IPA and Red Rocket Ale
Bear Republic Racer 5 IPA - American IPA, 7%
Cloudy amber-orange color, about a finger of head is retained. Nose is malty and citrus. This beer just nails the exact median between malt and citrus, thick but not overwhelming. Hoppy without being too bitter. An excellent example of an IPA.
Bear Republic Red Rocket Ale - American Red Ale, 6.8%
Appearance is a deep dark amber with minimal head that reduces quickly. Nose is a mix of fruity and hoppyness. Hugely malty in the initial taste. As that washes around and away, a dry, burnt bready taste remains. Delicious. Very creamy, very dry.
