Good Googly Moogly!!! Love this!

Poured from bottle into chilled pint glass. Immediate 2-inch thick fluffy white head, which dissipated slowly but left lots of sticky lacing behind. Thin white collar remained throughout. Medium bubbles and carbonation. Color was light orange amber, but mostly clear. What swept me off my feet here was the lovely nose -- perhaps the best citrusy, piney grapefruit nose I've ever experienced, with subtle hints of orange, mango, and papaya. On the palate -- pine, pine, pine and sweet bitter grapefruit. Just fabulous! A textbook IPA in structure, with voluptuous sexy flavor profile. Hops are strong, but not overpowering, and alcohol is totally masked/subdued. Mouthfeel is good & chewy. Overall impression is as impressive as any IPA or DIPA I've ever tasted. If you don't absolutely love this, then you've obviously got your head up your ass.

No finer beer on the planet than Russian Rivers' Blind Pig IPA.

A hoppy beer with a wonderful bitter bite to start off on the first sip. The head is creamy and alive and when a fresh keg is tapped, you get the full experience of a remarkable IPA. Usually tapped in at 6.1-6.25 alcohol, this IPA is not seasonal in any form as it is made for year enjoyment.

Prost!
