Pours gold with a copper tinge and a creamy khaki head. Nice C-hop aroma, some danky resinous stuff going on. Nice dry citrusy pale ale. Very simple but good.

Russian River Pliny the Elder
On tap at Russian River. Pour was amber with nice off-white head. Aroma is piney and citrusy. Taste is much the same especially hitting the citrus notes. Whatís striking about this beer is how balanced it was with just the right amount of malt. Finish bitter but not too much so. Outstanding.

Russian River Framboise for a Cure (2013-)
Bottle at Kebabfesten. Almost clear deep pink liquid with medium pinkish head. Aroma of raspberries, lemon, mineral, light wood, red apple skin and light funk. Taste is dry and medium sour with notes of raspberries, lemon and red apples. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Awesome. Great complexity, the world class RR sour base shines through in a nice way with the mineral really taking some place.

Bottled 500ml. -Huge thanks Domagoj for sharing. Clear golden coloured, medium sized white head, pine in the nose. Moderate malty, piney, decent grapefruity hoppy, mild caramel and touch of alcohol with strong pleasant bitterness in the finish. Decent brew but not the best Iíve tried. Glad to finally rate it.

ristal clear, golden color, tiny white head, quite steady. Juicy, piney, bit green, grapefruity, orange peal aroma. Taste on the other hand is much more green, much more, leafy, grassy. Still awesome. Great green and bitter aftertaste. Completely dry.

Russian River Blind Pig IPA
Bottle, 500ml. Bottled less than 3 weeks ago. Clear golden with a foamy offwhite head. Faint aromas of citrus, pine, light funky yeast. Medium to full bodied, moderate carbonation. Medium sweet, medium to heavy bitter. Dry and oily. Cereal flavors into a bitter hoppy finish. Underwhelming to be honest. Seems like a recipe from 15 years ago. Still quite hoppy.

From a bottle. Pours out an opaque gold and makes a thick white, Belgian head. Aroma is of biscuit, citrus. Tastes citrusy, tangy, and simply fantastic. A beautiful interpretation of the style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
