Enjoyed on tap on 5 October 2013 at Russian River.
A: Pours a hazy (dry-hopped) golden brown with 1 finger of foamy white head, leaving sheets of lacing down the side of the glass.
S: Earthy and citrusy hop character dominates the aroma. A bit of malt sweetness shows through. This beer smells juicy with hop character.
T/M: Bitter up front is cut by a slight malt sweetness. Medium body and carbonation with smooth and slightly prickly finish. Hop character is juicy and deep in this beer, imparting abundant juicy citrus and earthy character to this brew. Finish is lingering hop bitterness.
O: A very solid beer. Nothing spectacular, but I'm glad I tried it while I was there for FfaC. Very different from the other RR IPA offerings I've had, which made it a nice change of pace.
Serving type: on-tap

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.
Serving type: growler
