Just had this one recently and while it didn't quite live to the hype it was a damn good IPA. Had it on fraught from a freshly tapped keg .... Later had it bottled and it doesn't compare... Any fans of Russian river here? I have a few others in bottle I am waiting to try

Send some this way, I need a CA beer source :)

I thought it was really good, I didn't think it was the best out there.

If they ever decide to bottle up that Plieny the younger tripple IPA. now that is worth the effort.

You can only get the younger at he brewery on a specific day once a year.

All honesty here, The Blind Pig from Russian River is 10,000 x better than the elder and younger. It’s RRB best beer, only on Tap at the brewery.

when I was on the west coast, I have been able to drink all their beers except the Younger, so many great beers out now that are not easy to acquire.

I almost had a chance to try the Heady Topper,.... that is said to be one of the greatest IPA's ever.. but no dice as of yet

Next time I get some Heady I will let you know and send you a few, have had it many times.

Damn LK that would be awesome. I can get you a cigar city hunahpu if you want. I had a few of them, some were 7 years old. Drank a few with my Dad and my son on his birthday, or I can get you Goose Island County Bourbon Stout.

No bro, but I have heard that its a magical concoction of a beverage. I'm just in the wrong place for getting the great IPA's now.
