On tap at the Toronado. What more can you say? It’s the grandpappy of IPAs. Pours a nice, somewhat hazy orange with a surprisingly light, thin head. Big piney and grapefruit hops waft from the glass, so you know what you’re in for. The hops take over your first sip and really show no mercy to the malt in the background. A bit unbalanced. This is straight up, O.G. West Coast IPA style. Lots of grapefruit and pinestraw. Good body with a clean, crisp and pretty dry finish. IPAs have come a long way since Vinnie first brewed this in the mid-90s, but this still holds court with the better ones of today. Cheers to a legend.
On tap at Tap and Handle in Fort Collins. Had a few times before, never rated. Excited to have again! Citrus. Pine. Sweet malts. Normal ’west coast’ inputs into a strong IPA. Tasty. Well done, as ever, with RR. 14.6 tricksta_p (4555) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - JUN 16, 2017
From tap at Toronado, San Francisco. Aroma is fruity hop, biscuity malt, tropical fruit, pine and light caramel. Flavour is above moderate sweet with a firm bitter finish. Body is medium. Pretty great balance and good ’finesse’ to this piny fruity malty IPA. beerlover503a (18) - Alabama, USA - MAY 5, 2017
All I can say is Wow Wow Wow. Blind Pig has to be the best IPA I have ever had. Very full bodied and citrus hops just explode in your mouth. vbeer (14) - Barcelona, SPAIN - MAY 2, 2017
Tasted side by side w pliny at apex in pdx. Much more mild than pliny. Juicier too. Grapefruit. Orange zest. JBell14 (92) - Chelmsford, Massachusetts, USA - APR 14, 2017
Bottled 3/14. Pours a clear golden/caramel color. Sweet malt aroma, but the aroma is not as strong as Pliny the Elder. Similar crisp pine flavor with more citrus on the back end

Medium aroma of malts, caramel, orange, pine, bread, hops and citrus.
Clear/hazy golden/amber beer with heavy yeast and with a slight/medium white/off-white head.
Starta medium/heavy sweet with malts, caramel, orange and pine; ends slightly bitter and dry with bread, hops amd citrus.
This beer is rather intense, complex and balanced. Shamefully it is filtered to oblivion, ruining the appearance and palate more than it should. The aroma is good and the flavour is great.
On tap at Saraveza. Pours an orange-ish golden color. Thick white head. Scent is all hops. Taste is piney, citrus. Hop flavor is pretty strong. Tasty beer. darbeer75 (887) - Round Rock, Texas, USA - FEB 19, 2017

Rating #2471 - 2016.05.03 - Draught at Monk’s Cafe. First beer in Philly for CBC, and it’s from Cali. Pours a rich golden, small white head, minimal lacing. Aroma is tangerines, lemon peel, pine. On the palate, similar tropical flavours, mild resin, mild pine needle. Medium bodied and extraordinarily balanced. Superb.
