Russian River is one of 72 participating breweries from around the country raising money with specially brewed beers for the ALS Therapy Development Institute! We are all brewing different styles of beer using the same hop blend chosen by Ken Grossman, John Mallett, and Vinnie from the 2013 harvest. Our chosen style is an IPA with Citra, Mosaic, and experimental hops HBC 291, 436, 366, and 344. Each brewery will donate $1/pint to help with research and treatment of ALS. Ales for ALS!

brokensail (15642) - Dublin, California, USA - AUG 14, 2015
On tap @ Russian River. Clear golden pour with white foam. Really good pineapple and grapefruit hop character. Kind of a grassy bitterness. A little on the tangy side, but a lot of good fruit character and zesty citrus. Slight toasted grains and bread. Perhaps a touch of tropical fruits. Nice.

Damico (3138) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 10, 2015
Pours clearer golden yellow. Aroma brings nice light citrus hops. Flavor is balanced hops with the subtle skunky armpit notes I love on a hoppy beer.

Defreni (2983) - Husum, DENMARK - JUL 26, 2014
Fad: Taster og pint på brewpub. Står som Ale for ALS IPA på tavlen. Ekstem frisk duft af humle, let kattepis men mest citrus og fyr. Næsten ingen bitterhed meget moderne IPA. Super drikbar øl. Meget lækker.

chinchill (4137) - South Carolina, USA - JUL 23, 2014
On tap at the RR Brewpub. A: golden amber; excellent clarity. Somewhat weak head still leaves some lacing. Aroma: mild for style -- more like an APA; fruity and floral with hints of herbs and faint spices. Some light malts evident. Flavor: some light malts and a very nice mix of hops. Excellent lingering aftertaste. Clean. FeeL; smooth; light body and light for style; good medium carbonation. O: excellent and I preferred this to the high rated Blind Pig that preceded it: a matter of perference in hop loads.

Homer321 (4057) - Melboring, Florida, USA - JUL 16, 2014
Draft at brewery. Nose is a ton of tropical hop explosion. Lots of mango. Fairly clear light yellow. Taste is a wonderful hop explosion, again, just a ton of fruit and tropics with a clean buttering that lasts through and through. A truly great IPA!

On tap @ Russian River. Crushed a point with joet before the titty club. Pours a slightly hazy golden appearance with a khaki head. Somewhat herbal, spicy hoppy, juicy grapefruity aroma. Nice mouth feel. Pretty dry and bit crackery. Citrus fruits. Moderate bitterness. Good chugger.
