A - Nice head and color

S - Sweet hoppy goodness

T - IIPA perfection - I've had a few very good imitators, but the original is best.

M - Very nice

O - Not much needs to be said. It's great and everyone knows it already. Try one if you want to know what the best is like.

Love this beer and Pliny the Younger is just as good.

Only down side to this beer is that the Russian River brewery is always crowded. It can take about 15 minutes for the bartender to even know you are there, but the beer is perfect (so worth the wait). They should have a better way to get a growler and get out.
