4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
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 pour at Belmont Station. Pours a golden color with a foamy consistent head throughout. Really piney aroma. Piney bitter hops throughout. A bit of grapefruit as well. My mind isn’t blown here, but this is a solid IPA overall. Enjoyed this.

Let’s start with the good/great: big hops that are fruity and pine. A bit of soap,slick oily mouth feel, a dry finish, and very easy drinking. Orange in color with sticky white head. Would have liked it to be a bit bigger, because it would be the perfect IPA then . However, this is still a damn fine one as it stands.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
GABF week, 2014. I think I had this at Falling Rock. Big, fresh hop aroma and flavor. Lots of bitter hops; citrus and pine; giving this beer intense flavor; and light malt sweetness. Excellent.

On tap. Pours a hazy gold/copper with moderate head. Aromas of rubber, pine, resin, tropical fruit and sweet malts. Flavors of muted oranges, toast, pine and gritty toasted malts. Nice. Could be a go to beer if available.

RR has the hurdle of living up to the hype every time one of their beers is tried for the first time. Make no mistake, this is a great IPA; however, there are a lot of breweries out there that now make great IPA’s as well, which can tend to diminish what is a good representation of the style, secificaly west coast IPA’s. Nice citrus hoppy nose. Stand caramel color. Bright, crisp palate. Strong bitterness. The thing that stands out is the balance this beer has, which is still tough to do.

On tap at Russian River. Pours golden yellow with white head and lace. Aromas of pine and a lingering grapefruit and citrus. Taste follows the nose and finishes crisp and bitter without being overpowering.

Bottle pour. Cloudy orange with white head. Some webbing. Dusty aroma. Caramel malt offset earthy hops. Orange and resin. Rustic and inviting. Taste does not disappoint. Hops pack a velvet gloved punch: bitter yet gentle. Wheat and citrus. Good amount of resin. Very drinkable. Enjoyed.

Aroma: intense flowers, tropical fruits, light grass. Appearance: clear gold, small, creamy, white head. Taste: light bitter and sweet. Palate: bitters intensify, grass and flowers, but a nice sweetness remains of tropical as well, getting a little dry in the finish. Overall: very nice IPA, great aroma and palate. Pint at Neighbourhood, San Diego.
