Review from 10/2010 notes. Poured into a Nostradamus flute glass. Pours a medium orange amber with a moderate, fast dissipating head, leaving lacing. Hoppy aroma. Hops, citrus; hoppy finish. Somewhat muted, like a watered down Pliny the Elder. OK, but don't see the point. I'm not getting the same positive experience as other reviewers. Purchased from a rarely visited store, so maybe an old bottle. If I'm lucky enough to see this again, I'll revise the review.

Over the top west coast ipa. Pale, American 2 row with dextrine malt simple flavor and body. Aroma strong clean citrus rind hops. Strong hop flavor, like distilled grapefruit essence. What it lacks in balance it makes up for in deliciousness and real

Well this was a real nice treat. I was out to dinner and saw this one the draft list. I made sure I ordered as many as I could handle in one sitting. The beer poured out as a nice golden color with a brilliant white head on top. The lacing is nice a sticky on this one. The smell of the beer is piney and full of citrusy hop aromas. It smells so refreshing. The taste of the beer is also very nice, hopped up like crazy with a clean malt backbone. The mouthfeel is very sharp and crisp with a strong carbonation to it. Overall this beer was very good, I'm glad I finally finished the trio from Russian River. All were excellent.

Bottled July 9th, 2012.
A - Pours a clear gold with a slight amber hue. Frothy off-white head.
S - Clean pineapple and grapefruit. A good amount of pine as well.
T - Strong pine hops with clean malts. Bitter hop, orange peel finish.
M - Such a crisp beer. finishes dry. Very drinkable.
O - Not as well balanced as Pliny but not far behind. Takes the pine/orange peel route.

This beer was drank by me a couple of months ago at a houseboat tasting in Amsterdam. Vanlingleipa, Frank, was our host during a fabulous tasting.
Frank spoke highly about this beer and this was one of the better beers we had that day...and boy we had some beers .
The blind pig is very drinkable and very hoppy with a darkyellow fluid.

On tap at Monk's Cafe in Philly (6/22/12). Served in a shaker.
Pour: Golden orange with minimal cloudiness. Finger of fluffy white head. Decent lacing.
Smell: Pine and citrus nose. Not much malt to be found, maybe a little towards the bottom and it warmed up.
Taste: Citrus at first, followed by pine in the middle, and a bready, light caramel malt at the end.
Mouthfeel: Hops are juicy, but overall pretty light and dry. Very drinkable.
