Bear Republic Brewing Company Apex Special IPA
Hello beer lovers and welcome to another edition of the NorCal Beer Blog's brew review.
Tonight’s featured beer is Bear Republic Brewing Company Apex Special IPA. I picked this bottle up at Royal Liquors (here).
From the Bear Republic Brewing Company website: “Apex: The Highest point, the culmination or climax. In racing, the apex of a turn is approached differently as conditions dictate, but always with a forward looking mindset. This beer is a culmination of years of brewing and drinking hop forward IPAs. We reserve the right to move forward, to advance the style to the next Apex.”
Let’s get started!
Appearance: Pours a golden copper color with a nice white head and sticky lacing.
Aroma: Citrus, tropical and pine hops, stone fruit and a solid malt backbone.
Taste: Pine, citrus and tropical hop flavors and bitterness balanced excellently by caramel and bready malts.
