COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Wouldn’t it suck to have a job where nobody likes you? And, regardless of your name, people always call you Rita, as in "Lovely Rita?" Sometimes people just shorten it to the simpler "meter maid." The funny thing about that is the Webster dictionary defines a "meter maid" as "a female member of a police department who is assigned to write tickets for parking violations." You have to wonder how the male "meter maids" feel about that! Parking Violation is an American style pale ale using lots of American hops, lots of quarters, and several trips back and forth to the parking lot. So, remember to drink responsibly and feed your meter.

[2/12/15] Draught at Russian River in Santa Rosa. Clear golden. Aroma of citric hops and a bit of diacetyl. Flavor has light diacetyl, citric hops and a bitter finish. Medium-bodied.

"Enough hops that I still wonder if 42 ibus is a mistake. great balance, though. this is way better than your average pale...more aromatic, more flavor, and better balance. quite good. If it weren’t for their amazing IPAs and barrel aged belgians, it’s worth a pint."

Enjoyed on tap at the brewpub. A full bitterness, full flavoured APA. Golden colour and lacey.

Draft. Rich mahogony-amber color with a nice off-white head. Citrus hop aroma. Citrus flavor with some pine and earthiness and a touch of malt backing.

Funny name for this beer and an appropriate homage since I’ve had a few of these in Santa Rosa over the years… It pours a pale gold color with a white head. The aroma has citrus, pine, florals a little bread. The flavor is the same. Nice citrus floral hoppiness, but a bit of a weak body. Solid bitterness. A decent pale ale, but probably one of my least favorites from RR.

Clear golden with a fluffy white head. Good sweet caramel and grapefruit aroma and taste with a crisp dry sweet grass finish. Good.

On tap at the brewpub. The look is clear, golden in color, with a decent white colored head. The smel is citrus, caramel, bitterness, and earth. Good aroma. The taste is light bitterness, pine, caramel, and hops.

Fresh growler shared at a BeerAdvocate event. This is a pale ale and not an IPA? Wow. Appearance is, well, pale. Bright golden in color with a nice creamy white head. Piney and floral hops and some sweet malt on the aroma, a lot like Russian River IPA or Blind Pig. Flavor is sweet malt and loads of fresh piney hops with a hint of light fruits. Medium body with a light, refreshing, and crisp mouthfeel. Top notch for the style and an excellent summer session beer.

Tap at RR. Golden body, with a small white head. Aroma is hops, fruit and some grass. Flavor is hops, fruit and citrus.

Growler from alex. Thanks man... Pours a hazy apple cider brown with a medium soapy white head... Grassy mellow citrusy hop, pretty tame... Flavors are a quaffable earthy citrus component without much of a bitterness. Drinkable but not as memorable. A really nice palate cleanser nonetheless. Non-obtrusive and easily imbibed.
