look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Bottled on 1/6/12.

A: Golden-yellow with a fluffy, white head. No lace and little retention.

S: Malt up front. Hops are there but great balance.

T: Again, very balanced. Delicious, fruity hops. Everything is subdued and comes together to create a great beer.

M: So smooth. Little to no carbonation. Way too easy to drink. Insane.

O: A damn good, balanced IPA. Worth the hype? Probably.

500 ml bottle

A: Amber/orange color with a faint white head. Carbonated well to leave a lasting head. White lacing on the glass tracked my progress.

S: Incredible hop aroma.

T: Hop flavors match the aroma. Perfect balance between hops and malt.

M: Very pleasing to the palate. Hop bitterness leaves a dry feeling, which only makes me want more.

O: An excellent single IPA from Russian River Brewing Company. My only complaint is that Vinny does not distribute his IPAs in bottles to the East Coast.

4.38/5  rDev +0.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

Bottled 4/13/12, consumed 5/5/12. Poured a rich gold with a finger of bright white head. Huge, fresh aroma of grapefruit and pine with floral notes.

Moderate carbonation and a light, slick mouthfeel. Grapefruit and orange up front with gentle caramel and more floral presence than in the aroma. Mildly bitter pine finish.

Light and easy-drinking; aroma was the best aspect.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Bottled on 03.24.2012 poured 500ml bottle into a pint glass.

Golden in color with a white head. Good scent of hops as soon as the bottle was opened. Also get some piny and citrus.

Can taste the bitterness, but it is not overpowering. The beer is well balanced. I get a some sweatness from this which compliments it well.

Overall a great beer.
