10 oz pour from Johnny Brown's in San Diego
A - Crystal Clear light honey, thick, dense 1" head. Tons of lacing that lasts throughout the beer. Nice retention.
S - A nose full of hops. I got grapefruit/citrus and pine in massive amounts, seasoned with a little sweet malt smell.
T - Hardcore battle between the sweet malt and the hops; each presenting itself several times, finishing with a dry hoppy smack. Wonderful balance of flavors.
M - Med body, good carb and coating.
D - Dangerous. I caught a buzz off the 10 oz and I was ready for two more!
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
