kosko20 (350) - Hopewell Junction, New York, USA - AUG 19, 2008
This is great, I could smell the hops 3 feet from my face. Aroma is of beautiful hops with the pine and citrus coming through with them. Appearance is gorgeous, slightly pale golden at the bottom and darkens to a copper gold at the top with a thick white head. Flavor, hops with grapefruit and pine along for the ride. Palate is perfect bitterness, smooth in the start. First Russian River to rate (had Younger when I was drunk so can’t rate that), and definitely didn’t disappoint!! Made props to golubj. Thanks a bunch.

Bottle. Pours golden/orange. Nice, piney hop aroma. Great citrus hop taste. Could drink this all day. Light and not overwhelming with hops. Very good IPA.

thickfreakness (132) - AUSTIN, Texas, USA - AUG 18, 2008
Thanks to mwompus on BA for this one. The bottle is only 16 days old so its super fresh. Thanks again. Pours a vibrant orange with a lasting white head that leaves plenty of lace on the glass. Tons of resinous, piney hop smell with some grapefruit and spicy/earthy hop tones as well. Pine definitely dominates this great nose. Tons of pine and smooth taste that just slides over the palate. So smooth, refreshing, and easy to drink that I would make this an everyday beer if I could. A great single IPA.

Courtesy of kmweaver. Hazy pale with a small white head. Massive grapefruit and tangerine nose with an unfortunate crystal malt note underneath. The flavor is lightly sweet, with ice tea, grapefruit, some pine, tangerine and a bit of cattiness. Medium body is round with moderate carbonation.

kyzr (1153) - Belgrade, Montana, USA - AUG 17, 2008
Bottle thanks to AgentSteve. Big white head atop this dark golden gem. Big pine and citurs nose. Flavor is huge on hops with a mild backing of malt. Really need to chew through these hops, but I didn’t want it to end.

16.9 oz bottle. Bottled on 7-22-08. Poured a nice dark gold, white head. Smells wonderful, huge pine notes, a little citrus as well, glorious. Great hoppiness all over the place, it’s a tongue wagger. Great beer.

Oh my goodness. Bitter. Hoppy. Bit of toasty taste to it. Everything reputation led me to believe it would be. I envy those SF beer drinkers who can probably get this on tap all the time. What aroma. What taste. I split the bottle with my wife.
