On tap at Russian River. Comes a clear pale gold with a nice white head. Aroma of citrus and pine. Taste is grapefruit, pineapple, orange, mango, pine, and malt. Very refreshing.

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.

Growler pour into a Spiegelau IPA glass. Nice nose, fruity, tropical, subtle pine, definitely picking up some bubblegum, so assuming there's some Galaxy in there. Taste very dynamic for a session IPA. Finish has moderate astringency and some lingering bitterness. Mouthfeel was good for a session IPA, more substance than most, with the carbonation on the lower side. One of the better ones in the style.

I feel like the ratings on this are something of a new money backlash. This is a stellar session IPA. But, the problem with session IPAs is you can't make them juice bombs ... they depend upon a balance of aromatics, clean malt, bitterness. This hits all those elements in classic fashion. Pine, but not overly piney. Hints of citrus but not a fruit bomb. Cracker malt character that keeps it from feeling watery. Crisp, refreshing, excellent with food.
