Got to enjoy this while still in the tank... While it was in the last stages of being Crashed still had a over hopped nose for me but finshed lighter on the bitterness than expected.

Crushed at GABF ’10. Yup. Badass. Full of citrus goodness. Love the hop profile. Great IPA from a great brewery.

Thanks to Alex for shipping this from RR and Sean for sharing...Pours with little carbonation as the growler didn’t hold well sadly. The beer is a really nice light peach color...The aroma is pretty nice, light pineapple on the front with lots of resin on the back. Sticky thick pine hops...The taste is really nice dumping some of the hops, thankfully as isn’t isn’t a dipa or have that high of an abv. All the RR ipa’s are very similar, almost like the same base is used everytime, just boil the hops different times.

From the Jug at the GABF, Colorado Convention Center Denver 17/09/2010 Big hop aroma. Golden coloured very hoppy and fruity with pineapple and citrus flavours. A hint of dryness in a crisp and creamy malt finish.

draft at GABF 2010. deeper golden pour, average aroma of citrusy hops. Big solid nop bitterness that the aroma did not indicate was approaching. Weedy throat burn but in a good fresh bitterness way. Big bitterness lats throughout the taste. Very nice

Nose is grassy with pineapple, a little dank, juicy mango. Flavor is huge on the hops - some grass but mostly pineapple & tropical fruits. Maybe a bit too heavy on the bitterness.

Sampled at the Great American Beer Festival on September 16, 2010. Smells... hoppy! Very fresh and light. Light yellowish color. Fruity hop flavor. Very smooth, very easy... not heavy, not alcoholic.
