Out of a can and into the Russian River tulip up at the cabin in Mammoth Lakes, CA.

Raul ain't a hater like some peeps out there. I mean, just because Ke$ha and Nicky Minaj need to be thrown off a cliff, Raul ain't gonna hate on them.

So here we have Ska's Modus Hoperandi. And although Raul can respect it, it really ain't his thang. Raulsky is a West Coast city boy, so it's a lil too heavy on the East Coast pine for him. Kind of like a Green Flash IPA with less juice.

Like many activities in life, Raul enjoyed his time with it, but he prob won't venture back.

My. Fuck.

Pardon my French. This is an incredible brew. I've heard a lot about this beer, but never gave it a chance. Boy am I glad I did. The moment I poured this beer, I felt a sense of warmth inside. A good warmth. A warmth that soothes the soul. What I'm trying to say is my soul has never felt so warm.

Anyway, the smell is hoppy greatness. Just too good (possible)?
The mouthfeel is something to write home about.
The taste? Get the Hell out of here. The taste is incredible.

The only thing left to review is the way this beer leaves you feeling. Um, fucking outstanding? Need me to draw you a blueprint? Too bad. Buy this right now.

That's it. Barkley signing out.

On tap at Edinburgh BrewDog. From notes.
oily appearance of a dark caramel colour

Smell is full of resin-y hops, some bready malt.
Taste is smooth and complex, satisfying rich body, and a touch of molasses sweetness and full dry hops, quite solid all-round ipa. Rich citrus with grapefruit and resin, hops and a piney aftertaste with walnut and a bit of herbal dryness. Very tasty and rich.

Serving type: on-tap
