I love you RR!

A: The brew poured a pale orange into the glass where a 1+ fingered, white frothy head formed exhibiting decent retention and loads of lacing.

S: Sweet Candied malts are accompanied nicely by strong pine and floral notes.

T: As the smell indicated, pine flavors dominate. The pine tasted so raw, like pine needles were added to the brewing process. Somehow, the beer remained pleasant and not overwhelmingly bitter. Malts follow and really complete this fantastic IPA.

M: Medium bodied, well carbonated.

O: Another great entry from Russian River Brewing Co. Can't wait to visit their brewery some day!
