Had on draft two successive days on a visit to CA. The first time I tried it I didn't know the ABV and guessed that it was around 7%, not because you could taste alcohol, but because there was so much flavor. Hop forward with plenty of citrus, missing some of the pineyness that I expect from west coast ales and substituting tropical and earth notes, riding a sufficient and perfectly complimentary malt backbone. I find single hop beers to have more personality than usual, and not always in a good way, but here RR nails it. I've almost stopped drinking pale ales because they are less interesting to me than IPAs, but this is one I sorely wish was available locally.
