Bottled 4-17-13, enjoyed 5-7-13. Poured into a tulip glass.
A- Crystal clear golden-orange. Pure white head, carbonation was good, bubbles kept streaming to the top long after pouring. Lacing was noticeable but not super sticky.
S- Very clean hops. It reminds me of ocean air. Slight citrus, fruity, a little musty. Big grassy fields and pungent hops.
T- So smooth, clean, mellow, and so much hops. Moderately bitter. Many different flavors- caramel, Hops!, bitter, crackers.
M- buttery, goes down quick and easy.
O- Way to combine strong hoppiness and smoothness, Russian River. A hop-lover's wet dream, with some great malt flavors, too. I was sad when this bottle was empty, this beer has so many layers! The flavor is so saturated with hops. I had hop breath for hours after I had finished it.
