Had on tap at falling rock.
Pours a clear golden body. Good head that gives a nice lace to the brew.
Very piny in the aroma. A bit larger sweet grapefruit than with the elder, but not much. Slight biscuity malt.
Resiny pine flavor very prevalent. A touch of spiceyness and sweetness from the malt help finish off this well rounded beer. The grapefruit is a little more pungent in this version than the elder.
A good beer nice smooth easy drinker for alcohol and flavor profile. I don't know if i'd be able to pick this one apart from the Elder though had side by side.
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
