Bear Republic XP

type: pale ale
origin: Cloverdale, CA
price: $7/22 oz

Unfortunately my opinion of Bear Republic has been shaped by Racer 5; not that it's a sub-par beer, even if it does "taste like tits" (thanks for that one Brats), but it has a tendency of creating tunnel drinko-vision. It's like when you've been using 2-ply tp and then you switch to 4-ply: Holy shit, that's a chap-free butthole! In similar regards, this beer is making me re-consider this brewery as a major player. I knew from the instant I opened this, as aromas exploded in my face like a bubble. The flavors and hop balance are beautiful. It explooooodes.
