4.3/5  rDev -1.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

bottle courtesy of my favorite troll under the bridge, Patronwizard. Vic, talking to you reminds me to spend my donation in to the Special Olympics.

Now onto the review. Poured into my Hickory Crawdads pint glass, thanks Dwight

A. Golden straw color with a white head that fades quick but leaves a lacing down the glass the whole way through

S. Hops, mostly. Which is what I'd expect my IPA to smell like. Slight, slight malt smell but dominantly it smells like weed and we all know the smell of weed=hops.

T. Not as over the top bitterly hoppy as I was expecting. Grapefruit, orange and pine taste dominate with a slight grainy taste in there also

M. Good sticky mouthfeel with slight carbonation.

D. This one goes down smoother than Vic at a reunion concert for Wham! Good drinkability. Smooth. went great with the hot wings I destroyed last night.

Damn good brew. Best IPA I've ever had, Probably not. Would I drink again, Fuckin eh I would. Very solid brew all around

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.
