Served in a 16oz standard pint glass.
Pours a light amber with a moderate head that dissipates gradually.
Orange and pine dominate the nose. Little malt or alcohol can be deteced as the hops dominate.
Strongly bitter and citrusy, like orange rind. The malt backbone perfectly balances the hops, having an almond cookie-like taste to match the bitterness.
It has a light-moderate body, especially for an IPA. Carbonation is strong but not unpleasant.
The balance of this beer makes ordering another a no-brainer.
The Blind Pig is an exceptional IPA. Arguably one of, if not THE, best-crafted IPAs in existence.
Serving type: on-tap

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.
