Bear Republic Apex Special IPA

Apex is a good, solid–very solid–IPA which leads with a nose full of hops, distinctive, perhaps I should know what kind: herbal with a little citrus.  On the palette there’s good mouth feel with a touch of caramel, a hint of brown sugar, a maltiness, a little sense of champagne fizz, and then a whole lot of hops. I like this even better than the Racer 5.  Racer 5 is the basic, Apex is the advanced.
With dinner I had a couple of pints of Defiant Muddy Creek Lager.  That’s not a bad beer when having a couple of pints, slightly earthy but a little thin for my taste.  Meanwhile I had a taste of my wife’s Hacker-Pschorr Hefeweizen, and that’s a very good, predictable beer, particularly good for those growing beyond Blue Moon.
