500ml bottle poored into a pint glass. Thanks for sending this one Rick!
A golden honey colored body with an orange tinted hue. It displays a lage off white head that us sticky, cream and well brillaint. Excellent lace deposits all around the glass on this. As if it didn't look good enough the nose comes through evenn better, WOW! Super fresh and oozing with pine, pineapple, grapefruit and orange/lemon zest. The taste is again exceptional with the same exploading juicey hop flavors as in the nose plus some dry/spiceness on a very well done sweet malted canvase. This beer is between med/thick but with a great hop oil feel that keeps it going down smooth. Overall even though Blind Pig is extreme and bursting with flavor it is in no way overwellming. Just as well done as an IPA can be IMO.

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.
