Picked one of these up the last time I was in San Francisco. Pours a dark yellow color with a nice tall head that has decent retention and leaves nice lacing on the glass. The aroma is full of US hops that have a citrus and pine character. The flavor is quite bitter and full of that characteristic US hop with citrus and pine. The hops hang around on the palate. The mouthfeel is medium and the drinkability is pretty good. Nice beer.

Blind pig is the IPA of IPAs. It is amazing the work Russian river does. I live in SoCal and it is actually harder to find this than Pliny. Every time I get my hands on this beer it never sits in my refrigerator more than two days, and I doubt that it sits anywhere longer than that.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

510ml bottle dated 4/3/14 poured into a tulip
A: Orange color with a one-finger head
S: Very fresh, immediately jumps from the bottle as soon as it's opened. A pleasant combination of citrus/pine/floral hops but caramel/malt providing a solid background
T: Matches the nose; tastes incredibly fresh. Again a great balance of hops and malt yet packs tons of flavor for its 6%
M: Medium-bodied, very crisp and refreshing
O: One of the better IPAs I've had. Fresh, flavorful and refreshing
