Being on the East Coast, it's been a very long time since I've been able to try a NEW Russian River beer. I am very excite.
A-pours with an impressive amount of head. hay colored.
S-comes in with a amazing flavor of barley and grains with just a beautiful albeit small touch of grapefruit. smells of high quality. maybe the best smelling beer...ever.
T-comes in with a great light flavor of barley and bitterness. it's a very light though crisp flavor. the bitterness does come in with a delay, but once it's there...it sticks to the tongue. high quality flavor
M-so creamy. goes down easier than water.
O-this is the beer that sets the bench mark for drinkability. i've never in my life had a beer so savory. i can drink this like water. it definitely reminds me more of the "day time/all day" IPAs. it's so much more fresh and clean that most APAs.

Review from notes
Growler filled up a few hours ago to a pint glass
Pours a vibrant golden orange with a finger of head. Low carbonation, good retention and okay lacing
Smells like....simcoe. Very catty pine followed up with a light citrus. A very submissive caramel malt works to back everything up
Taste is nearly identical to the smell. Lots of pine and kitty litter on the tongue, followed again by some citrus and tropical notes. Again, caramel backbone holding everything together
Feel is a light / medium body with moderate bitterness, low carbonation. Alcohol is hidden, it's easy to drink
Overall it's no Pliny but good none the less. Single hop beers are great for getting to know the hops, but I'm always reminded drinking them how boring they become without others to mix up the flavor
