Had this beer multiple times, thankfully I live in northern ca....it is my favorite beer to date. Finally writing a review after I tried Heady Topper. This beer is amazing and it's a must try for beer enthusiasts and hop heads alike.

A- clean, refined amber/orangish color. Nice 2 finger white head that has nice retention.
S- grapefruit,citrus and pine needles fill my nose. Just an amazing aroma that I wish I could capture. Slight malty sweetness is apparent as well.
T- clean... citrus (particularly grapefruit and tangerine) and pine all come together very nicely....this beer is incredibly drinkable at 8%. Leaves the mouth with a hop bitterness that slowly disapates.
M- perfect balance of hoppy bitterness and slight malt. This finishes by coating your mouth with a thin, citrusy, hoppy aftertaste. I can't explain the flavor bomb this is. Truly a masterpiece.
O- overall the best beer (and double ipa) I have ever had. It is true to the style of the beer, and the execution is simply flawless. These men and ladies are geniuses at Russian River....thank you!
