3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Half pint at the brewery. The aroma has citrus orange and grapefruit. Nice hop nose. Transparent golden body with a small, white head and good lacing. Starts with peppery, hoppy, earthy bitterness. Husky tannins in the middle. Finishes dry. This tastes like it’s more than 4.2% ABV.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
3 oz chilled pour from tap into cylindrical taster as part of Russian River’s “everything on tap” 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?
Much fuller body than I would have expected considering the style and size. More flavorful too.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
(Échantillonné au Bagby Fest): Juteux, croustillant avec des clémentines et de la gomme de pins qui peinture la bouche. Par moment, on croirait une Pliny the tiny. Buvabilité morbide.

On tap at the brewery. Pours a golden color, creamy white head. Aroma is hops, lemon, biscuit malt, a lot of citrus. Balanced. Flavor is hoppy, and lots of caramel. Best session IPA I’ve had. Incredibly good for the low ABV. Not too weak on the body either.
