On-tap at Barely and Hops 2/12/11
A: pours deep orange with 1 finger off-white head and minimal lacing on the glass. Beer has a great color.
S: Impressive piny and grassy hops and strong citrus.
T: Piny and grassy with less citrus than expected. Moderate hop bitterness and slightly sweet on the back end. No alcohol flavor or feeling.
M: Smooth with moderately high carbonation. The medium body is quite nice.
D: Drinkability is slightly above average for the class. The lower ABV makes it a little more sessionable.
Hats off to RR for making such exceptional beer. There are 5 or 6 other beers that I would give this grade or higher to.
Serving type: on-tap

4.21/5 rDev -3.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25
Appearance: Poured a darker shade of gold, almost amber. Had a very small head that was gone within minutes.
Aroma: Had a very hoppy aroma which was very pleasant. The hops gave off nice aromas of both citrus and pine.
Taste: The flavor was what you would expect from a west coast style IPA, full of citrus notes and some good hop bitterness that lingered a bit on the tongue. A nice subtle malt backbone added to flavor of this delicious IPA.
Mouthfeel: Nice full-bodied beer that had a nice amount to of hop bitterness lingering on the tongue. Had a nice dry and bitter finish.
Overall: A great example of a west coast style IPA. Loved the citrus and pine aromas as well as the citrus and malt backbone in the taste. Easy drinking IPA as it does not have an overwhelming amount of hop bitterness but enough to taste and appreciate the hops. Very good brew.
Serving type: on-tap
