On tap at Russian River.

This was an eye-opener. Great piney nose... full, bright, big hoppy flavor with just a touch of candy sweetness to balance the bitterness.

Most impressive thing was the feel--crisp and light, but not watery like a lot of these. Tastes like a typical RR IPA, flavor-wise, but drinks like a cotton candy version.

Just plain wizardy to pull off a beer like this at 4.2% abv. Up there with Alpine's Hoppy Birthday as my favorites in the class. Lots of similarities there.

Crushable! Great balanced session ale. So clean and refreshing. Still that malty RR signature mouthfeel.

For those that like their women like their beer...easy poundable!

Tasty as heck low-ABV hops here, just enough crackery maltiness to back up the pungent, herbaceous/piney hops, with just a touch of tropical character thrown in for good measure. Bracing and satisfying, just like I like 'em.
