Nice pale gold in color with a great amount of bubbly white head that persists. Lacing also fantastic. Aroma is of grapefruit and sweet/bitter grassy hops. Taste is really good. Subtle sweetness that reminds me of fresh cut St Augustine. The bite of the hops is slight, but well balanced. I'm surprised that this beer is so drinkable. I've killed a full tulip already. Mouthfeel is light, bubbly, and has a nice hop sting. Might have to get a growler of this beer instead of Pliny my next trip to RR.

If Pliny is their double IPA then Blind Pig is their single/regular IPA. While true Russian River Brewing Company does brew a Russian River IPA as well, I'm of the opinion that Blind Pig was Vinnie's first, and therefore the precursor to Pliny The Elder.

Pours a light golden with a thick, quickly dissipating white head. The aroma explodes with grass, grapefruit, and flower notes. This is the best smelling IPA I've ever had. The flavor is more subdued, but still amazing. Biscuity malt followed by strong hop bitterness redolent of grapefruit with hints of grassiness and floral notes. Incredibly drinkable. Finishes dry and bitter. Light bodied with effervescent carbonation. Overall, if this isn't the finest example of an IPA I've ever had, it is surely in the top two or three! I cannot give enough kudos to Russian River!
