4.35/5  rDev +13.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Had this on tap at Bo's n' Mine in River Falls.

A - Pours a golden, straw colored body that is hazy in appearance. A nice, white, fluffy head that is about a finger thick rises and slowly fades away to a lace across the beer after about five minutes. Plenty of carbonation is present and visible.

S - Plenty of hops as one would guess. Additionally, there is a nice sweet citrus combination of lemon and earthy grass notes. Faint whiffs of malts are also present along with a slight shot of honey that makes for a good smelling IIPA.

T - Smooth, strong in hops as one would expect. Lots of lemony citrus and piney notes but nothing overbearing. Bitterness is at a minimum and that is something to note especially in an high abv IIPA like this one. No taste of alcohol or graininess despite the high abv.

M - Medium-bodied with a perfect amount of carbonation. Entering the mouth hops take over. Every inch of your mouth is covered in piney/citrusy hops, but again, nothing bitter or tough to take in. Very smooth overall. Carbonation washing the palate clean leaves the mouth ready for a sweet (honey?) and citrus finish. Very smooth drinking for an IIPA.

D - At the bar I had no idea this beer had such a high abv. It's extremely smooth and easy to drink, which can make for a lethal combination, especially when your not at home. Regardless, its dam good, but drink with caution this one could catch up with you quick.

Rush River seems to have the IPA/IIPA scene figured out. The guys at RR seem to lean towards a strong hop profile in all their beers. While I think that makes some of their beers less desirable, it sure does pay off quite well when your looking for a good IPA or IIPA. It would be nice if this was available in local stores and not just in the bars but it's still worth a try.

4.78/5  rDev +24.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

A cloudy golden hue
I't has aroma of peaches, honey and smooth hoppiness.
Taste is very floral and smooth. The hops and ABV are there
but not overbearing. Hate to overuse a word but this is a smooth brew
Mouthfeel was just right.
Had a sample of this at Ace Wine Spirits and Beer in Hopkins MN.
A great beer and a great staff.
