Special thanks to flexabull for giving me the opportunity to sample this wonderful beer.
Setting: Drank this over labor day weekend and boy what a treat.
Appearance - Poured a clear honey amber with a frothy 2 finger marshmallowy head. Great retention and lacing.
Smell - One of the most complex nose's I have experienced full of citrus, pineapple, pine, floral spices, gummi candies and light warm malts.
Taste - Refreshingly bitter raw hops which are very nicely balanced with malts and floral notes. The taste is not as complex or intense as the nose but very nice.
Mouth - Full creamy body coats the mouth with wonderful hop flavors. Just the right amount of carbonation.
Drinkability - A very well balanced and therefore easy to drink beer. I could easily enjoy 2 or 3 glasses in a sitting.
Overall - What a wonderful culmination of time and effort from Russian River. This beer warrants all of the accolades it receives and will continue to impress craft beer lovers for ages to come.
Serving type: growler
