I prefer it to Pliny and it seems to be harder to find. A great IPA and I dare say the best example of an IPA I have tasted.

Actually like this equally or better than their Pliny. Depends on the day. But one of the best IPAs out there. Well done!

Love this beer. My favorite from Russian River. It's a must buy... If you can actually find it.

If this was made at a different brewery it would get a lot more love but in the company of Elder and Younger it gets lost sometimes. One of the best single IPA's out there.

Poured from a bottle into a tulip

A. Very transparent golden with a very little head

S. Faint fruits and sweet malts.

T. Nice on the palate. But not very potent. Smooth.

Nice but needs a Lil more carbonation.

Pretty hoppy initial taste with a nice malty feel in my cheeks. More enjoyable than alpine duet and Pliny the elder but not as enjoyable as the alpine pure hoppiness.
