Bottle. Pours an almost clear amber, nice, fluffy off-white head. Aroma is right away pine oil, grapefruit and hops. Flavor is more of the same, pine oil, grapefruit, hops, with a touch of caramel and soap in the background.

Rating per .5L bottle. I’ve had this on tap in Santa Rosa and it’s much better than the bottled version. A beautiful honey-colored liquid pours out to form a slightly hazy body and a bountiful, off-white head that forms a lumpy landscape, eroding into thick rings and blotches on the side of the glass. The aroma is magnificent, whispering "surely this was dry-hopped," and wafting flowers and citrus blended with pine, light honey, and a sweet french roll. Sadly the bottled version is rather flat--at least my bottle is--but we have a medium body, extremely light carbonation, watery. The plus is that it’s still incredibly refreshing, and there are enough hops to give the illusion of a dry finish. I taste a nice mouthful of hops, not a nasty one, that is strong but not overly so with a nice blend of pine, citrus, and a touch of fruitiness for hops. Hops are matched with a bit of sugar, a bit of that bread we smelled earlier, and some pollen. In the mouth it’s decently balanced, and the aftertaste is dry and well-hopped, boasting of grapefruit, pine, and pollen. Easy drinking, delicious, refreshing...I’m very fond of this IPA. I recommend finding it on tap though re: carbonation issue.

500 ml bottle. Pours gold with a big thick head with tons of lacing. BIg hoppy citrus aroma. Flavor is the similiar with the addition of floral and pine notes. Long bitter finish that sits on the back of the tongue. Great IPA!

Bottle thanks to hophead22, thanks again man. Poured a hazy golden color with nice fluffy white head. Aroma is nice cirtus floral scent along with hops. Flavor had a delicious hop taste to it along with citrus and ended smooth with a nice bitterness. A very enjoyable IPA.

Very similiar to the RR IPA, but seemed a little more tame in most areas. About the same drink.

piscator34 (2178) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - SEP 24, 2008
Bottled sample via (and shared with) oakbluff. Gold in colour with medium carbonation. Loads of hops upfront in the nose, with floral, white grapefuit, and white pepper notes, along with some mild pale malt notes in the background. The hops are, once again, front and centre in the mouth. White grapefuit, flowers, a bit of earth dominate, with a bit more malt coming through mid-sip before a final kick of sweet orange. Solid bitterness. A very good IPA.

I was a bit shocked at how light in color it was.... Just an absolutely fantastic beer. Top notch IPA.... Easily one of the best i’ve ever had...

I’m not sure if you can beat fresh Blind Pig. Golden orange pour, foamy white head with great lacing. Fresh hops on the nose as well as some citrus and mango, which comes through even more on the palate. Some definite floral and light herbal notes. A little pepper and pleasant bitterness. This is a desert island beer, one that would be high on the list of "If I could only have one beer for the rest of my life..." A lovely sessionable 6.1% as well. A nearly perfect beer. Bottle thanks to Ryan.
