Very floral beer. Nice amount of citrus peel, especially orange as well.

It gets a 85/100.

A lighter shade of gold, with pretty white head at half an inch, professional grade clarity to the beer. Aroma is all up in your nose with piney and fruity hops. More pine though.

Taste, jeez, they put just enough malt to make it a beer, its all hops in the flavor. Very bitter, almost citrusy acidic from the hops. Take your antacid! Highly carbonated, lots of hop variety, a blend of new and old school.

No fancy name, just straight up west coast ipa.

She's a pretty looker, light gold, tons of clarity running through it, the softest white head you've ever seen just under the 1/2" mark.

Aroma is the usual RR dankness: fruity and piney, no skimping on the dry hopping.

Super light on its feet, allows for such a vessel to funnel hops in your gullet. It is quite bitter. Smacks of all the usual suspects: amarillo, simcoe and a bunch of c hops.

Another variation on basically the same ipa recipe which is almost always excellent.
