Cheers to TicoCali for the bottle. Nice extra.

Bottled: 10-18-11

Drinking this while looking at my new (real) Xmas tree and watching DVR'd Premier League soccer. Lovely environment.

Looks great. Golden straw with significant carbonation. As I roll it around, a small off-white head appears and has minimal retention on the edges. Great nose. Really floral with deep tangerine, grapefruit, and a deeper almost mango. Robust. Tastes fantastic. A very clean, pure IPA. The initial taste is sweet and bitter, with that deep citrus feel from the nose. Neither the sweetness nor the bitter overpower and the flavor undulates throughout. It retains a clean crispness and ends nicely. A good, hoppy IPA that knows what it is and carries itself very well.

Like It? Yes, Very Much So

Poured into a standard pint glass. This pours a honey straw color with 1 1/2" of beautiful white head. The smell is awesome. Lots of citrus heavy aromas. The taste is rich in tropical hops. Pineapple most notable here. RR makes some of the best beers on the planet. They have an uncanny ability to make great hop forward beers that actually have some balance, not just dumping a bucket of hops in and calling it an IPA. Wonderfully carbonated and light to medium body. If I lived in CA, this would be a regular for sure at 3.99$ a bottle.
