Pours golden orangish on draft at Brew pub. Fresh citrus pine nose. Nice hoppy bite all around with a good malty back stop. Overall excellent ipa and IMO better than "the elder".

Probably my favorite beer from Russian River. Nice fruity notes and a nice full finish with the taste. A highly drinkable brew.

I guess I found Blind Pig to be a letdown after Pliny the Elder and Pliny the Younger. It’s a decent beer, but there are better out there.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottled on 04/03/13. Pours a clear amber color with a froth medium head with the aroma of mild citrus. Tastes of a standard mildly bitter IPA, but leaves the palate with a slightly sticky bitterness that quickly disappears. Overall this is one of the best IPAs I have had.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottled 04/08/13 consumed 04/26/13... Fresh! Pours a super clear golden color with a healthy white head that slows to a film. Smell is not a pronounced as I would expect but I do get some nice grapefruit, floral hops, and little caramel malts. Taste shines... Grapefruit again, nice carbonation, a little sweet malt and an excellent bitterness that lasts after the sip has been consumed. Great IPA!

Had this at about 9:30 am for some reason. Clear amber pour with a nice white fluffy head. Fantastic aroma of grass, pine and citrus. Taste is piney and grassy hops, witha really nice caramel malt backing. Very well balanced.
