4.54/5 rDev +2.9%
Burnished orange, typical translucent RR IPA,1 finger of soapy white head, splotchy lacing.
Aroma is delightfully fruity, not getting the references to heavier than expected malt in other reviews, this one is hoppy to me. Lots of orange and grapefruit and a touch of sweetness and herbal goodness.
Flavor also on point, and delivers a slightly peachy taste with the orange and grapefruit, very nice flavors here, liking the way the hops stand out,and while the malt isn't minimal, it isn't getting in the way of the juiciness.
Mouthfeel is light medium,lower level of carbonation but seems appropriate, mild bitterness that hangs out for a few minutes,
Typical of the West Coast style of IPA that I enjoy, and even though I prefer my IPA unfiltered, both Alpine & RR have a certain knack with this style. Delicious beer and highly recommended.

3.86/5 rDev -12.5%
Growler courtesy of Abbbp, opened with Gunch52 and TheReal_Adam. Poured into a Jester King Funk and Sour Fest Tulip.
Appearance: Orange amber with a pale creamy head that leaves substantial lacing.
Smell: Sweet fruity hops, apricot. Some pine notes too. Relatively typical for an IPA. Nothing special.
Taste: Relatively dry, somewhat earthy. Substantial bitterness, decent notes of pine and fruitiness. A basically Still a pretty typical IPA though.
Mouthfeel: Moderate carbonation, relatively long linger. Bitterness sticks around a while.
Overall: Nothing special, really. A good IPA that doesn’t really do enough to set itself apart from the million other great IPAs out there.
