East coast guy gets to visit Russian River, wow, how lucky am I? Poured into a nonic pint glass at the brewery.
This pig pours a clear dark golden hue with a one finger fluffy white head that leaves a thin layer throughout. Stickiness is damn good, just what I expected for this brewery. Smell is a sweet fresh piney hop burst with a nice earthy/dirty hop undertone. Nice caramel malt scent is mixed in quite well with the gritty hops. Taste is of big earthy hops, just how I like my IPA's. Has a very nice bittering effect on the tongue, but not over-powering. Sweet grapefruit hops seem to surface about midway through with a nice caramel malt balance as well. Aftertaste is somewhat dry, but very clean. In my opinion, perfect tasting IPA. Mouthfeel is light to medium bodied with a good amount of carbonation. Such a treat on tap. I could easily put these down one after another. By far one of the best IPA's I've had to date, and I've had a couple ;)
Serving type: on-tap
