The “Blind Pig” is R.R.’s standard IPA. Even though it is aggressively bitter there is more than enough flavor to tie it all together very well. It pours a clear golden with a big dense head. The aroma is all out hops with enormous lemon, pine and tangy fruit. The flavor is bitter up front with a big pine and lemon flavor with some apricot, bergamot, and grapefruit thrown in. The finish is big, lingering hop bitter. This is an aggressive IPA but like I said the flavors tie together very well and make it a damn fine IPA.
