COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
One of our favorite styles, this ale is a hop explosion. Light in color, heavily hopped in the kettle as well as conditioned with several unique hop varieties. This creates a beautiful floral/citrusy nose which is balanced well by a smooth and full finish.

Thanks PhillyBeer2112! Copper color with a thin white head and a little lacing. The aroma is of citrus hops and some malt. The malt comes through a little more in the flavor. Some slight toasted flavors with a hop precense that seems lacking against the malts. Not bad, but not great.

Pretty straightforward. On the sweetish side for an IPA. Decent pine hop flavor, slight resin character. Good not great.

This was my final beer of the night enjoyed at the Muddy Pig in St. Paul, the last leg of our RBSG pub crawl. I don’t know much about Rush River, but what I have heard was very good things about this brew in particular. And let me say I wasn’t disappointed. Very crisp IPA flavor. Clean grapefruit and piney hops make this a beer I could easily order once again.

A nice catchy name certainly catches the eye. Good marketing strategy indeed!

Guerde (1150) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - FEB 9, 2008
(bottle thanks OSLO) Pours dark copper with a white head that sticks around. Aroma of pineapple, orange, and upon further smelling, a hint of sauerkraut. I found this to be quite odd, but not entirely offensive. Taste was nice and malty with a good amount of bitter hops in the finish. Medium bodied with a decent finish. This really wasn’t too bad.

TipsyMcStager (1128) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 29, 2011
Pours a pale golden with dense white head. Citrus hop aroma with some grassiness. Mid range body, with some bready malts. Finishes with mid range bitterness, some piney resins.

kmeves (1098) - Mount Pleasant, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 22, 2008
Pours a light amber body with a beige head and nice lacing. Aroma is medium sweet orange, floral and earthy. Flavor is pine, grapefruit, lemon and light malt. Medium body, slick texture. Finishes somewhat abrupt and bitter. A lighter IPA than I am used to but seemed to have a nice balance which made it very drinkable.

boboski (1095) - Alabama, USA - DEC 15, 2007
Thin, mostly diminishing white head. Cloudy yellow body with white particulate integration on a grand scale. The nose has plenty of fresh grains but is sorely lacking on fresh hoppiness. Mild diacetyl noted. Clove and marshmallow creme intrigue. Caramel is mild and lacking. The flavor is loaded with diacetyl, a buttery coating atop the mild to medium bitterness. Sweetness is of the same level, too much for the tame body. The finish is moderately bitter and unpleasantly astringent.

DasBierChef (1083) - Hudson, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 17, 2011
A pretty mediocre IPA. A bit too much bitterness lingering in the after taste.

MrBendo (1064) - Swedesboro, New Jersey, USA - NOV 1, 2007
Thanks to tytoanderso for the bottle. Hazy amber with a smallish head. Aroma was big time pine and citrus with a touch of sweet malt. Taste bring a pleasant bitterness with a fair amount of apricot. Bitter and dry finish. A fairly good American style IPA.

11-12-07 bottle. Bright cloudy orange color full of sediment. Sweet orange hoppy smell. High bitterness - soapy and a bit dry, but good. Leaves a soapy coating on the tongue - not the best - but decent overall.
