Bottle sent to me courtesy of Bring as an extra. Thanks Barry!

Poured into a pint glass, appears hazy golden yellow with some see-through and orange tones. White head that deminishes. This beer leaves a ton of lacing and looks really sticky.

Spectacular, truely perfect in every essence, peach apricot, lemon, flourishing citrus hops and slight pines singes. Cascade to the max, semi floral and slight caramel sweetnees all comes together to produce a harmony.

Peach, orange, strong pines, a little bit of creamy caramel, nice dry after taste, bitter lemon. Semigraniess as well, its nice to have an ipa with some body to it.

Pours a beautiful golden sunrise orange with a fluffy white head. The head dissipates leaving a generous amount of lacing on the glass. Smells of pine, floral and citrus flavors. The taste is very much the same with some malt flavors in the back end. This goes down very easy and it is very smooth. Not overly bitter, but some bitterness lingers. Overall, a very solid IPA.

Blind pig is the IPA of IPAs. It is amazing the work Russian river does. I live in SoCal and it is actually harder to find this than Pliny. Every time I get my hands on this beer it never sits in my refrigerator more than two days, and I doubt that it sits anywhere longer than that.

510ml bottle dated 4/3/14 poured into a tulip
A: Orange color with a one-finger head
S: Very fresh, immediately jumps from the bottle as soon as it's opened. A pleasant combination of citrus/pine/floral hops but caramel/malt providing a solid background
T: Matches the nose; tastes incredibly fresh. Again a great balance of hops and malt yet packs tons of flavor for its 6%
M: Medium-bodied, very crisp and refreshing
O: One of the better IPAs I've had. Fresh, flavorful and refreshing
