Bear Republic XP Pale Ale


Type: pale ale
Origin: Cloverdale, California
Price: $4.29 per 22 oz
Website

Bear republic is my new go to brand. Everything I have had from them has been wonderful, and this is no exception. The best way to describe this is a nice mix of a good california pale ale (say sierra) and a good british bitter (I can't think of one because I haven't had an exceptional or characteristic one). It changes character often, and both ends of the spectrum are delightful. It is a bit light, but still let's you know that it is not to be fucked with. They say the XP stands for "Exception Pale Ale", but I think it should be "Extreme Phucking Ale".
