On tap at Russian River brewing. pours out a nice golden topped with a white head. nose is a nice hop combo along with a cereal malt. Taste is more of the hop combo and a nice balanced malt bill. swoopjones (7020) - Buffalo, New York, USA - APR 14, 2015
draft at Russian River, solid IPA but has some tough competition on its own draft board. medium bodied, citrusy, some mango. Overall, a nice IPA that took a back seat to Blind Pig & Pliny RobertDale (6477) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - FEB 21, 2017
On tap at Tornado in San Francisco. Comes a clear gold with a decent white head. Aroma of citrus, pine, and malt. Taste is citrus, tropical, pine, and malt. Enjoyable. joeneugs (6371) - Livermore, California, USA - OCT 4, 2013
On tap at the brewpub. I didn’t hear very many good things about this one, so I only ordered a sample. I wish I could have had more because it was darn good! Light golden yellow with a white head. The aroma was floral and citrusy with hints of tropical fruit. The flavor was the same. Very fresh and hop forward. It may suffer a bit next to Pliny and Blind Pig or even Row 2, but it was a very nice, light hop forward beer. JulienHuxley (5809) - Sherbrooke, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 3, 2016

This one was was on draft at the brewpub with the Sterling hops and listed at 5.80% ABV on the board. I had a draft pour and likec it so well I took home a growler. It poured a nice golden color with a good white head and lots of lacing. Nose is citrus and pine hop odors, so even though there is only one hop variety, this hop has multiple aromas. The mouthfeel was slick and creamy. Flavor is very classic IPA with some bitterness. Shows you don’t have to pack a beer with dozen different hops to make it taste good. Bitter finish. Simply a very drinkable and enjoyable brew. AdamChandler (5052) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - APR 6, 2014
