Got this bottle along with a bunch of other RR stuff in a trade with Jhenry04, thanks Jason.
A light copper color with an off-white head that leaves some sticky lacing around the glass.
Smells great. Citrusy, piney, bitter. Some nice caramel malt in there too.
Tastes great too. Huge citrus hop flavor up front, lemony and orangy. In the middle the malt backbone is noticeable, just enough for a little balance, not especially strong. Piney and bitter in the finish.
Bitterness in the end finishes dry, but generally the beer has a rather oily feel to it.
This is a fantastic IPA, and I could drink it all night.

4.21/5 rDev -3.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25
Appearance: Poured a darker shade of gold, almost amber. Had a very small head that was gone within minutes.
Aroma: Had a very hoppy aroma which was very pleasant. The hops gave off nice aromas of both citrus and pine.
Taste: The flavor was what you would expect from a west coast style IPA, full of citrus notes and some good hop bitterness that lingered a bit on the tongue. A nice subtle malt backbone added to flavor of this delicious IPA.
Mouthfeel: Nice full-bodied beer that had a nice amount to of hop bitterness lingering on the tongue. Had a nice dry and bitter finish.
Overall: A great example of a west coast style IPA. Loved the citrus and pine aromas as well as the citrus and malt backbone in the taste. Easy drinking IPA as it does not have an overwhelming amount of hop bitterness but enough to taste and appreciate the hops. Very good brew.
Serving type: on-tap
