UPDATED: APR 25, 2014 Fairly hazy light orange pour. Very little white foam on top. Bright citrus scent, pineapple, apple, and orange. Seems to make my tongue fall asleep momentarily. Super well balanced taste, medium body. Hop taste is piney but smooth, a little spicy like there was the slightest amount of cayenne or chili. Finish is clean, slightly bitter and sour but void of most flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours clear orange, white lacing. Aroma is pine, resin, hops hops hops. Taste is orange-grapefruit, caramel, wonderfully dry but not unbalanced. A straightforward and delicious West coast IPA that Iím very fond of.

SinH4 (944) - SWITZERLAND - JUN 28, 2015
Sampler at the brewpub in Santa Rosa. Hazy golden color with white head. Hoppy, not too fruity or resinous, more green. Some grapefruit though. Shallots/garlic, very surprising! Decent bitterness. A very different IPA!

ctipping (117) - Florida, USA - JUN 18, 2015
500 mL bottle poured into a pint glass. Golden straw colored with a big white head. Hazy, but not sedimenty looking. Traces of head remain with loads of lacing. HOPS. Citrusy hops. Orange and grapefruit hops. No malt smells at all. HOPS. Citrusy hops. Orange and grapefruit hops. No malt taste at all. This is hop juice. The most pared down way of delivering hop flavor. Not even a hint of sweetness to make it easier to drink. As much as I like hop bombs, this isnít balanced at all. Itís bitter, then itís bitter, then itís bitter some more. Because of the low malt character, itís thin. Even for a single IPA, itís very thin. The carbonation feels high, even though I donít think it is very high. Just the nature of ti makes it seem that way. It is what it is. If you want something that delivers as much hop flavor in a low ABV package as possible, this is it.

Piney, floral, bready/toasty malt backbone. Ultra dry, each sip invites another.

bartzluke (270) - Oklahoma, USA - JUN 12, 2015
3 oz chilled pour from tap into cylindrical taster as part of Russian Riverís ďeverything on tapĒ sampled (16 beers this time around) at the brewery itself. I realize that drinking 16 different 3 oz pours is not ideal for proper rating, but when will I ever have an opportunity like this again? Very flavorful, nice layers of hops. Citrus up front, then nice tropical fruit. Dry, sticky bitterness as well.

Zakoon (223) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 9, 2015
Draught @ Russian River. Pours clear pale yellow tiny white head. Aroma is grapefruit, pine, citrus and fruity. Flavour is sweetish, light bitterness. Medium bodied, smooth texture, average carbonation. Finish balanced, clean, dry and more bitter than before.

koleminer20 (981) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - JUN 8, 2015
On tap at Russian River. The pour is a beautiful golden orange color, clear, with a beautiful white dense head and some spectacular lacing. The aroma is great. Heavy hops and tropical fruits with a beautiful resin. The flavor is just as good. The juicy fruity hops explode on the front end and leave an awesome tropical fruit that rolls through the hops. The mouth feel is great. Viscous enough and softly carbonated so it still falls off the tongue, but slowly. The resin and bitterness come through on the aftertaste and carry out the finish with a touch of fruit. Excellent ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A melhor IPA que tomei até hoje, foi on tap em São Francisco no pub Urban Tavern ao lado do Hilton. Lá também tomei a Pliny the Elder.

commonshawn (633) - Minnesota, USA - MAY 22, 2015
Tap at toronado in San Francisco. Light copper with white head . Pine and citrus. Tastes like a really good typical ipa. No Pliny, but good. Would definitely be a standby if I lived here.

Bottle. Honey-colored with slight haze and one finger of sticky, frothy head. Soft fruitiness in the nose: juicyfruit, grass, orange pith, candied tangerine, skittles, a background of cracker malt. Hop flavor is more pithy and bitter, with less candy sweetness. Grass and grapefruit up front before a very clean, balanced finish. Medium body is like cotton balls, with softly peppery carbonation. A solid, balanced, clean IPA. Well-made and very drinkable.
