This beer is just outstanding! I don’t think that I gave any beer a perfect score but this one deserves it!

I’ve had this fresh of the taps at Russian River. One fine IPA. I believe this is one of the best IPA’s around. Great Aroma!

A hazy orange beer with a thin beige head. The aroma is super delicious witth hoppy notes of grass and pine needles. The flavor is very much in balance between the sweetness and the bitternes with notes of malt, and lots of hops, giving it notes of grass, pine needles and grapefruit.

Great IPA. Hits you with big aroma of citrus and pine hops and tastes of grapefruit bitterness that is well balanced for the type of beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours clear golden orange with a large, fluffy, bright white head. Smells like tropical fruit juice: pineapple, mango, citrus. Taste is soft; bitter, juicy. Medium-bodied with a smooth texture and average mouth-carbonation, Russian River Blind Pig IPA finishes with a nice lingering bitterness.

Excellent IPA. One of the best beers out there. A perfect amount of hops. It's very drinkable. I could drink this all day. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Probably my favorite beer from Russian River. Nice fruity notes and a nice full finish with the taste. A highly drinkable brew.

In bottle and on draught at Monk’s in Philadelphia. Incredible IPA - much better on draught.

Had to give this one a slightly lower score than Pliny the Elder, as that beer edges out this one. Other than that, this is a perfect beer. Russian River brew pub is stunning, having to decide between R.R. IPA, Blind Pig and Pliny is a crazy tough choice (presuming you are ignoring the amazing Belgians).
