I got a couple of bottles of this along with a ton of other Russian River stuff from a recent trade with Jhenry04. Thanks for the beers!
Copper body with a small, whispy, off-white head. Not a lot of retention, but a decent amount of stringy lacing.
Smells great. Juicy, sweet, citrusy hops. Noticeable malt in the background.
Tasty. Up front comes some citrus and bitter flavored hops. Next comes some sweet hops and sweet toffee like malts. Finish a little buscuity malt flavor and some more bitterness.
Mouthfeel is oily and bitter.
This is a very drinkable and great DIPA. I had two bottles and drank both before I wrote a review. I'm glad because the first one didn't have quite the hop character of the second.
EDIT: I've revisited this one again and again (although I've never bothered to write a good review of it), including on-tap, in bottles, and on-tap at the brewery. It's fantastic every time.
