4.85/5 rDev +3.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75
A: Beautiful, deep golden IPA appearance with a tiny strip of white head. Had it in a 5-ounce sampler at Capone's in Norristown, Pa.
S: pine, sweet malt, slight grapefruit, wonderful.
T: Had a chance to have this paired with the Elder. And while I've had and loved the Elder before, the Younger just blows it away. So much more complex.
M: Thick and oily, but so very nice. Just feels ... right
O: Lived up to the hype for me, and well worth an hour wait outside in the morning cold. The ABV is so amazingly hidden. You'd never know. But I can't really say anything negative. AMazing nose, really great mouthfeel, beautifully complex. So much going on. Blows your taste buds away. Can't wait to have it again.
Serving type: on-tap

Had in a bottle at my house.. Hardee har har.. I stood in line for 6 hours on Monday Feb 17th.. Had to save my notes for this to be the 100th beer.
A: perfect hazy orange color that only left a little bit of head by the time my glasses got to me
S: smells of citrus and a small amount of pine.. I would argue that this is the exact smell that any "IPA" should shoot for
T: same as the smell.. Citrus and a little pine.. Very smooth and well balanced
M: I would say medium.. Ideal mouthfeel for IPA
O: obviously 1 of the highest rated IPA's and after getting to try it very well deserved.. Was lucky enough to have a non-drinking buddy that lives in CA take me and get 6 instead of the mandated 3.. Also lucky that he was cool enough to run to another bar and grab us burgers while we were in line or I would have been in trouble.. Big shout out to the coolest guy I know.. Thanks again Z!! Probably won't do it again cuz the wait was unrealistic but if you haven't had it it is worth doing once.. Very well done Russian River
