A big thanks to Bob for saving this one for me!
Poured into a tulip glass. Bottle dated 9/26, enjoyed on 10/25.
Appearance - Pours a nice golden color with a slight orange hue. A solid inch of head. Great lacing throughout the session.
Smell - Lots of hops! Smells bitter, probably from grapefruit. Slight hints of tropical fruits.
Taste - Very similar to the smell. A ton of hops. Some hints of pine and certainly some grapefruit. Slightly sweet. The hops are balanced out a little with a subtle bready malt.
Mouthfeel - Good carbonation. Feels pretty dense and sticks to your teeth a little.
Overall - An excellent IPA from RR. In my opinion this is just as good as PtE. (obviously two completely different aspects though) Was glad to try this one and would definitely recommend if you have the opportunity.

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.
