Split this 500 mL bottle with brickstoredave on a quiet Wednesday afternoon.
Pour is a light colored body with a soapy looking head and lace on top.
It’s pretty simple to summarize this beer. VERY hoppy, very dry and very American in terms of ita “American” IPA style. Not really my cup of tea. The hops in the taste and nose are fairly astringent, and although not huge, they give a certain one-dimensionality to the beer. It’s just not subtle and at the same time lacks complexity.
Frankly disappointing and another example of Russian River hype and lack of American subtlety for me. Ho hum.
