    The Russian River Beers are all about fresh beer. I am pouring a Blind Pig right now and there is a vibrant hop aroma. Maybe yours had aged too long otherwise I agree with your review. I like the dryness without the strong astringency that this beer carries, really letting the hops work.

    I also enjoy it poured in a .5L bullet glass. The Spaten rastal glass is my favorite version of this type.

      @JT – Unfortunately getting a hold of Russian River beers is not an easy task for me since they don’t distribute to NJ, So trying another Blind Pig would be a bit difficult. I believe the beer I had was 5-6 months old, so it probably did loose some aroma but I wouldn’t think it would be that significant.

      I still have a Pliny the Elder to drink which was bottled in May, hopefully I’ll get to it soon….
