Growler from Russian River consumed later on the same day.
A: Amber/orange color with a faint white head. Carbonated well to leave a lasting head. White lacing on the glass tracked my progress.
S: Incredible hop aroma. Bursts of Simcoe hops filled the air as soon as the growler was popped.
T: Hop flavors match the aroma. Perfect balance between hops and malt. Alcohol is difficult to detect.
M: Very pleasing to the palate. Hop bitterness leaves a dry feeling, which only makes me want more.
O: This is the gold standard for a double IPA. I am looking forward to returning to Russian River today for Happy Hour Pliny the Elder.
Serving type: growler
