Damn i love this brew. It's my favorite IPA. Had it on tap at Hollingshead. Actually, it was served in a pig ie a mason jar which had the RR Blind Pig logo on it... pretty cool. Apparently a 'blind pig' was slang for some brew during the prohibition era. Something like that and i'm sure i'm not doing the description justice.
Poured vibrant golden straw color like pure sunshine on the wheat fields... with a good sticky finger of off-white head. Aromas were incredible. Aromatic in your face crisp mountain pine scent that envelops your olefactory sense like a brisk mountain wind off the himalayas. Very keen and penetrating goodness in the nose finishing with citrus blossoms.
Flavors of sun ripened pink grapefruit fill your mouth as if a wedge was squeezed on your tongue. Bold citrus with a tad of sweetness just dominate and play in your mouth. Very quenching and bold. Light medium bodied and crisp on the tongue. I could just drink this everyday.
Serving type: on-tap
