Nice dark golden color with a good eggshell colored head and solid lacing. very noticeable carbonation.
Typical IPA hoppy notes on the nose; bitter citrus-grapefruit, pine
Flavor notes are exactly the same. Piney and grapefruit-citrus. It's very One Note. Flavor only coming from the hops. No malt balance.
Mouthfeel is medium bodies with solid carbonation and a fresh aftertaste.
Overall I'm a little disappointed from this! I had a feeling I was going to like this a little more than Pliny the Elder, especially after reading about the two in a forum. I was very let down by how it's so just one note, being all hops. Clearly the defining character of the style, but I believe there should be more balance. I will always grab a Pliny instead of Blind Pig.

At the brewpub I had the tasty priveledge of drinking this citrus delight. Smelled and tasted like the storage rooms at tropicana juice company. Great clarity, great carbonation, great taste, less filling, where do I stop? This is what all breweries should strive to brew. Once you have one every other beer in the workd is at least a little disappointing. No joke. I am ruined. Until I can get back to Santa Rosa that is.
Serving type: on-tap
