look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A- Very crystal clear, strong presence of bubbles. Almost lager like in appearance lacking the haze of most IPAs. 1/2 head dissipates into thin white layer that hangs on throughout. Minimal lacing.

S- Warm hops, not so piney or citrusy, a little drier more a dry hop smell. Very pleasant. The smell and appearance definitely deceive you on what you are about to taste.

T- Awesome. Just great. People who say it's better than Pliny are delusional but with the pleasure one gets from this it's almost an excusable delusion. Warm hops, chewy citrus peel, and some malt in there.

M- Strong carbonation, crisp as can be, definitely one I would drink all day errrday. Nice bitter finish.

O- A great beer. My second RR and damn they know their stuff. Not disappointed, thanks Dad.

I had this on-tap at Capone's on Black Friday. Poured into a standard pint glass.

Appearance: Pours a clear light amber color with a finger of fluffy white head. The head leaves a ring around the edge of the glass and a good amount of lacing.

Smell: Milder than I expected. Citrus peel hops with a very mild sweetness.

Taste: Much stronger than the smell. Bitter with a good amount of malt to balance things out. The bitterness increases throughout the sip. Citrus peel hops with a bitter and peppery finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium body with tingly carbonation and a finish that is a bit dry.

Overall: This is just an awesome single IPA The hop profile is wonderful, but there is just enough malt to balance it out. Definitely have it again.

16.9oz bottle poured into a snifter

Pours slightly cloudy yellow-orange-copper with a pleasing head and pleasing carbonation. Smell is very pleasant, straw, yeast, bread, hops of both floral and spicy character.

Taste is not a hop fest. To me, very slightly lacking in hops. This is not to say it's absent, just balanced more toward malty yeasty goodness than bitter hoppy goodness. I don't consider this a flaw, really, just not perfectly to my taste.

Mouthfeel is thick and round and fluffy.

Still a very solid beer. I like it.
