So many times on tap v. bottle, I'll give it the tap review. Great yellow and amber appearance, very clear surprisingly. Aroma is of great dry hopping.

Taste, big hops, light light malt. This is pine/citrus big time. Seems so light mouthfeel wise, just more piles of grapefruit and pine, some orange. More susceptible to the effects of aging than the Pliny series. Can get a heavier viscosity with age, but nonetheless still good. Otherwise, has a less than all malt sugar priming thing going for it to lighten the body, which is nice with this beer.

Good price, but I usually will spend it on PTE . . .

On tap served in a pint glass

A - Clear golden amber with 1 finger white head with good retention and good lacing.

S - Citrus and floral hops, fantastic bouquet. A bit of malt bread.

T - Very rich hop bouquet full of citrus notes of grapefruit, orange and pine hops with a nice balance bitter dry finish. Masterful hops-works.

M - Medium body, moderate carbonation.

O - This could be the best IPA at a lot of breweries and Russian River has 3 or 4 that I think are better. You have got to be kidding me. This is a solid IPA.
