look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

On tap at Toronado.

Presentation: 16 oz. pint glass.

Appearance: Body is gold with slight orange. Thin off-white head with a bit of lacing.

Smell: Wonderful very hoppy citrus aroma. Detected an almost grain/husky aroma as well.

Taste: Toasty malt upfront, followed by citrus hops, mixed in with sweet malt flavors. The malt and hops flavors dance around each other, each one taking its turn in the foreground. Wonderful bitter aftertaste.

Mouthfeel: Moderate carbonation.

Drinkability: Easy drinking.

Comments: Whenever I go to the Toronado, I order at least one of these. One of my favorite IPAs. Extremely enjoyable.

Serving type: on-tap

4.43/5  rDev +1.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

This brew pours a transparent deep straw color with a one-finger head that dissipates quickly and little lacing. The smell is of subtle grapefruit, pine and peaches. The flavor is juicy grapefruit, peaches and bitter citrus rind, supported by a malty, bready backbone. The mouthfeel is sticky and resiny with a slick finish. Overall, this is addictively good stuff that you dream about, much like other Russian River offerings.
