Santa Rosa, Ca - on tap at Russian River, Medium golden pour, soft white head with some nice bubble action and light lacing. Fresh light spruce aroma, some pleasant floral notes. Flavor is seductively pleasing with light subtle grapefruit bitterness, caramel sweetness, some syrupy pineapple-like fruity sweetness in the back end. Mouthfeel has a nice rich thickness to it. Pretty damn solid, almost up to par with Pliny.Rating #4 of 2017 Northern California vacation.

Draft at the brewpub. Aroma of peach, citrus, pineapple and tropical fruit. Taste has lots of fresh hop, pineapple, citrus, peach and some juicy touch. Must have mosaic. Delicious.

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.
