Got this in a trade with Mauerhan...thanks Topher!
Shared this bottle with an employee after closing up shop.
A- Poured into pint glass. Nice hazy golden yellow almost auburn color. Good pour left 1/2 inch off white head that once went down left a nice sticky lacing on the sides of the glass.
S- Big pineapple citrus hoppy nose to it. I can smell some malts buried deep into the smell. Little pine can be detected as well.
T- This beer has a nice big pine/citrus hop bite to it. The ending on this has a nice malt backbone which balances this beer out perfectly. Kind of a little sweet but still packs a bitter punch that stays after the sip.
M- Good mouthfeel. I would say medium at best. Leaves the oily hop resin on the tounge making you beg for more. Good carbonation to it. My only complaint is it has a little bit of a watery feel to it. Watery as in thinness not taste.
D- This is a damn good IPA and I hope that maybe one day RR will be in Indiana. Not going to ever happen I don't think making this beer one that I will have to keep trading for.

on tap at Interurban, Portland
Mad off-white lace over pale amber.
Mint leaf and lemon zest on the nose.
Light caramel and toast, some orchard fruits (yellow plum, peach) then light pine, citrus, and resin in perfect ratio.
Tangerine skin end and children’s aspirin linger.
Light to slightly medium, oily, a bit of chew.
Balanced like a katana. So light, crisp, round and just the right amount of hoppy. Deserves its legendary status.
