From a bottle of the first batch.

A- When in good lighting it pours a clear golden orange, though sometimes can look reddish orange.

S- citric, orange marmalade, a bit floral.

T- Bitter, citrus rind, grapefruity, quite floral actually. Way more floral than I remember it.

M- medium to light-medium body. Carbonation in these bottles is fine.

I must say when I first had Blind Pig a couple years ago I became an instant fan and it was my favorite RR brew. Recently I have found the regular house RR IPA to be more satisfying, though I still enjoy Blind Pig very much.

Bumping the last rating up from 4.3-->5.0 This is just an amazing IPA as I have always known but I love the mango fruit aspect to it so much... makes it so unique.

Poured into a Surly Darkness snifter. Thanks to Stupac2 for the 500ml bottle.

This lovely specimen poured a light and crisp orange/yellow with a tight 1/2 inch foam head and some serious sticky resin-like lacing.

The smell is tropical fruit all the way-Mango-grapefruit-a hint of peach maybe.

The tatse is so smooth. Much more balanced than i imagined based on the smell. The tropical fruit taste hits you up front. But, after a bit the fruit subsides, and the floral and pine take over, only to finish with just the right amount of bitterness.

The mouthfeel is a tad thin, but nothing earthshattering. It still finishes with a good amount of body and flavor.

The overall drinkability is top-notch.

5/5
