Batch #41

Served in a half-tulip, per request of the bottle.

Pours a bright, clean gold with a super thick and wonderful head. The appearance is outstanding, but my only knock on it is that the head is not rocky like the Belgians, nevertheless, if I could review on personal preference and not on style, it would most definitely be a 4.5-5 on appearance. The aroma is uplifting! Spicy, fruity, and a hint towards a bit of tartness. The flavor closely mimics the scent, but adds much more complexity and character to the beer. A lot of citrus, hops, and pepper comes through. Fresh green grass also. What an incredible beer. I could drink this stuff all day. It is fluffy and light yet very complex at the same time. Awesome. Russian River keeps amazing me. How do they do it?!
