4.6/5 rDev +5.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5
On draft at O'Brien's
Appearance is a clear amber hue, thin white layer of dense head, big thick lacing all over the glass
Smell is huge hops --grapefruit, pine resin, grass, lemon zest--, sweet bread malt tones linger in the background
Taste is moderate-full hop flavors, sweet grapefruit and citrus balance out the more bitter pine resin, hints of bread and grain malts are barely perceptible, finishes dry and bitter
Mouthfeel is full-bodied, thick and oily texture, moderate carbonation
Drinkability is high, great flavor and body for a single IPA at 6%, solid throughout, no glaring shortcomings for this style, definitely a favorite and repeat performer, this ranks on my short list of top single IPAs
Serving type: on-tap

4.43/5 rDev +1.6%

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.
