Growler. Pours a clear reddish amber with a small white head that sticks around for a while and leaves a lot of small spots of lacing on the glass. The aroma is lots of citrus hops, grapefruit, pine, lemon, a bit of sugar cookie, and some graham cracker. The initial taste has a light grapefruit sweetness, then comes some pine, sugar cookie, and some caramel. The finish is on the dry side with a decent bitterness. Fairly light bodied with medium carbonation. Another great Russian River beer. chibuck (3521) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 22, 2011
growler... medium gold, big copper tint, not a fan of the color, great carbonation for a growler, big off white head, good retention and lace... the nose is mostly hoppy, light dank, a little soap... tastes mostly hoppy, reminds me of a hoppy lager, malt backbone is a bit of bitter, bit of a weird finish I’m not a huge fan of, but pretty solid over all joeneugs (6372) - Livermore, California, USA - OCT 14, 2011
On tap at the brewpub. It pours a nice effervescent gold color with a white head. The aroma is fantastic with lots of mango, orange, and grapefruit. Very juicy and fresh. The flavor is the same. The body is light, but ithas a full, juicy mouthfeel. The finish is only mildly bitter. very tasty and refreshing. kmweaver (3208) - Petaluma, California, USA - OCT 11, 2011
Draft @ Russian River. Pours a bright, clear, effervescent golden-orange color; fine-bubbled off-white head with nice lacing. Juicy grapefruit and orange hop character in the aroma, with a very dry, almost stripped core (a touch hollow). Medium body; medium-high CO2; some nice yeast red fruit along with plenty of fresh, juicy citrus and orangey hop character; like biting into a fresh orange; great American hop profile with a dry malt core. Medium-length finish: grapefruit and orange hop bitterness with a quiet toastiness. Delicious.
