4/5 rDev -8.3%
Pours orangey golden with a white head. Aroma is citrus and its rind, floral, grainy, and piney. Flavor is floral, citrus rind, toasted bread, interesting graininess, and pine. A crisp, active mouthfeel. Overall, very nice IPA. While I definitely get why so many people love this beer, I only liked it, personally. Would drink again.

4.03/5 rDev -7.6%
A: Clear, save for the mess of sediment at the bottom if the bottle. Golden with a tinge of orange. Medium carbonation leaves a small persistent foam ring.
S: Straw. Lemon lime and orange.
T: Starts off cool and clean and rushes in with floral and citrus hoppy bitterness. Slight tinniness through the middle with faint sweetness of orange rind. Finishes a bit dry with a bit of pine and tree sap.
M: An odd mouthfeel: it starts off light but slowly grows in heaviness. Probably building from the somewhat long and dry hop aftertaste.
O: Really great IPA. Good full acidic hopiness; strong bittering, but not over the top. I can't see myself drinking more than one and really appreciating the second though. The flavors are too light and would get lost in the dry finish.

Pours clear golden with thick bubbly white head. Aroma is crisp hoppy floral citrus. Taste is crisp clean hops upfront with a touch of sweet malt and bitter orange peel on the follow through. Aftertaste is lingering bitter citrus and dank piny hops. Palate is clean and a little sticky. Overall very well balanced IPA.

A big thanks to Bob for saving this one for me!
Poured into a tulip glass. Bottle dated 9/26, enjoyed on 10/25.
Appearance - Pours a nice golden color with a slight orange hue. A solid inch of head. Great lacing throughout the session.
Smell - Lots of hops! Smells bitter, probably from grapefruit. Slight hints of tropical fruits.
Taste - Very similar to the smell. A ton of hops. Some hints of pine and certainly some grapefruit. Slightly sweet. The hops are balanced out a little with a subtle bready malt.
Mouthfeel - Good carbonation. Feels pretty dense and sticks to your teeth a little.
Overall - An excellent IPA from RR. In my opinion this is just as good as PtE. (obviously two completely different aspects though) Was glad to try this one and would definitely recommend if you have the opportunity.
