Russian River Brewing Co. Blind Pig IPA

What's most impressive about this beer is the way they've managed to mix the malt and hop flavors for a very pleasing result for both tastes. There's a little bit of history behind the name that you can read about on the bottle, little details that I'm always a fan of. This beer tickles your tongue on the front end with hints of the hop flavor. As it hits the back of your tongue the first thing you notice is the malt and grain flavors, which then blend and finish strong with great flowery citrus hops. There's one final kick of bitterness to remind you it's an IPA. Suprisingly, this beer is only 6.1 % alv.
