look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

a: hazy golden amber - like amber waves of grain. 2.5 finger solid white head with a bunch of bubbles on top

s: so much pineapple. pineapple to the face. orange, mango, juicy passionfruit, and crisp sweet caramel. i think i smell a hint ofdiacetyl as well

t: pineapple, bitter grapefruit, mango, fresh biscuits, bitter resins. finishes with some tangy apricots, fresh dough, and ends with bitter tea leaf

m: really nice mouthfeel. its medium with just enough carbonation to help the juice from the tropical fruits pop

o: much more bitter than the nose indicated. its clean and crisp and bitter. the bitterness is not overpowering, and blends nicely with the juicy fruit. the funny about this is that its really quite good - its just hard to live up to the other IPA offerings from Russian River, but this is really quite a good substitute. a little more bitter than say..PtE, but can holds its own with the big boys
