Pored this beer into a glass. It has a very pale golden color with good steady streams of carbonation. Nice white head. The aroma is very spicy, and has an alcoholic fruity smell, like a cider, and a very slight but pleasant hop aroma that comes through right at the end. Really amazing aroma on this beer. I would say it's the high point of this brew but honestly it's great all around. Moving on to taste. The spice comes across on the palate quite strong at first but gives way to earthy malty notes almost reminiscent of straw. A very pleasant, fruity aftertaste ends the experience. This beer has a really nice, crisp, and dry mouthfeel. Overall this is a really tasty double pale ale. Lots of interesting stuff going on in this beer. By all means worth giving a try if you stumble upon it and this seems to be the easiest Russian River brew to track down.
