This is a very nice IPA, with lots of character and of an insanely floral aroma and flavor profile. It pours amber with about a finger of foam. The aroma is floral with some mild notes of some unripe apple and pear. The taste is well balanced and features yet more flower notes in the aftertaste. Medium body and decent carbonation. A very nice example of this style.

On draft at Slow Hand BBQ in Pleasant Hill, pours clear gold with a small head. Aroma is mildly pleasant pine, floral and hops. Hoppy flavor is bigger than the aroma suggests. Solid light-medium, smooth feel. Overall a great IPA that I'd probably drink more of if it was more readily available.

On draft at Ladyface Alehouse. Can’t believe it’s my first time trying this.

Pours an orange gold, two finger head of creamy foam, heavy lace clinging to the glass.

Like Pliny, this IPA is very balanced. Hop presence, citrus, and floral qualities all see better than the pig as they climb through your nostrils. Very balanced.

A milder beer than Pliny, but still packs a nice bitterness at 6%. Not as much citrus as on the nose, but you get so much nice floral, malty notes to compliment the bold hops.

Crisp and clean. Very drinkable, and a solid flagship IPA from RR.
