On tap at the source. Russian River Brewing Company
Started with a Mortification as I've been drinking a schitt-ton of PtE for the last 6 or so years. One IPA / DIPA I'll never grow out of.
Moved onto PtE and after the first sip, I just started laughing to myself and was reminded again of, and said out loud to my wife: "This is the best beer I've EVER had."
I won't elaborate on whats already been said in previous reviews... but at the source it's the best. I drink it at Toronado at least once a week and have a couple bottles every week. (Yes, batches vary some)
It's IPA perfection, I can find no flaws and wouldn't change a thing. True craftsmanship. Crisp, bright, clean...such a clean beer and every sip keeps you wanting another. So packed full of fresh cut grass, dank, tangerines and almost a faint strawberry-ish pineapple if you look for it underneath the tangerines. At a loss for words almost while drinking it.
Dangerously drinkable. Stays crisp and freshest of hops tasting, I could drink this all day into the night. Doesn't become sweet after a few like many of this style do. Body is a bit thicker on draft than in the bottle which to my preference is great because the bigger the PtE the better in my mind! Can't wait till Feb for PtY.
For the record, my first perfect 5 scoring. And well deserved.
Serving type: on-tap
