Blind Pig IPA – Russian River Brewing Company

By Mike @mikescraftbeer

From Russian River Brewing Company out of Santa Rosa California comes their "Blind Pig IPA". The beer pours a golden to copper colour with an off white head. The aroma consists of floral hops, mild citrus, grain and pine. The flavour is of pine, resin, earth, bitterness, citrus and maybe a hint of tropical fruits but not much malt. The alcohol content comes in at 6.25%. Russian River knows how to make great IPA's and this one is no different. It could use more malts but this is a great IPA full of flavour.

Commercial Description: Full-bodied, very hoppy, citrus, pine, fruity notes with nice dry, bitter finish!
