On tap at the brewpub. Poured into a RR pint glass. Comes in at 7.0% and 60 IBUs.
A-Pours a clear, glowing orangish amber. There is a faint amount of white film along with a small bubbly ring. Lots of visible bubbles. Some nice streaks of lace are left.
S-Oozes of fresh hops. Almost a perfect combination of citrus and pine blended together. The citrus leans toward orange rind and grapefruit. Not much malt is apparent.
T- Lots of pine and citrus hops upfront. The two play well off of each other and neither one dominates the flavor. There is a nice level of bitterness. Not much malt is detected and the aftertaste is orange, grapefruit, and pine.
M-Lighter bodied with that smooth mouthfeel that RR beers typically possess. I found the carbonation to be a tad too much. It finishes dry and crisp.
D-Went down way too easily. The 7% is nowhere to be found. Very refreshing.
Another great IPA from RR. This one reminded me of a cross between their regular IPA and Blind Pig. I liked it so much I took home a growler. Hopefully they keep this one in the rotation.
Serving type: on-tap
