Pours a perfect dark yellow with a nice head. The body on this is strong but the hops take over after the first sip. Citrusy hops right upfront, then a bitter finish. Great beer.

Draft at the source!! Clear yellow, aroma is awesome!! Little bit of everything, citrus, floral and light traces of pine. I held off on trading for this bottle because I didn’t want a bottle... Needed it from the source. Light and refreshing with a lighter body but nice lingering pine bitterness. Light lingering floralness .... Real nice, glad I waited, nice!

Had a little while back thanks to Weezel. Color is golden with anice light white head. Aroma is fresh of piney and citrus hops. Taste is smooth and very light. IPA’s are hit and miss for me and no surprise this one hit big for me.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours a clear, lambent gold with a high, white, lacy head. Nose is elegantly delightful -- kaffir lime, geraniums, fir, and rosemary. Crisp on the front of the tongue, with well-balanced bitterness; butterscotch and caramel malt comes in on the mid-palate, neatly segueing into citrus cleansing astringency on the back of the mouth. The finish is long, herbal, and damn near perfect. Is there, like, someone at Russian River who can talk to hops plants or something? This stuff gets scary after a while.

Amber pour with a small white head. Aroma is big citrus peel, pine, and tropical fruit hops. Flavor is similar with a bitter hoppy finish but not overwhelming. Another great beer from Russian River.

Finally get to try this after a trade with mdg164, thanks! 5 week old bottle. Pours orange gold with a big clingy white head. Aroma is soft, grapefruit and pine resin on top of caramel. Mildly caramel malt backbone gives way to grapefruit and pine resin hop. Oily grapefruit peel hop bitterness in the finish. This is essentially PtE light.

Fad: Taster og pint på brewpub. Orangegul klar øl. Meget frisk, med masser af citrus og bitterhed. Gammeldags IPA med for meget bitterhumle. Superfrisk og ellers lidt kedelig i forhold til forventningerne.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Very nice IPA. Beautiful medium amber color. Lots of pine and grapefruit on the nose. Light malt in taste. Higher carbonation. An excellent beer, but I should have had it before the pliny.
