Much sought after and the bottle came at high cost. What a beer though. Wish I could have savored it for longer but it was gone all too quickly. Beautiful fresh hop aroma and clear golden color. Low carbonation to allow the flavors to really shine. Bitter but flavorful. Definitely more of everything in every dimension than the elder. 2021. One day, I will drink this on tap. We all need life goals. profile - February 10, 2021
B. Hop aroma seemed muted, malt light and alcohol hot. I won?t buy it. Had the 2022 5-25-22 and felt the hood were more present and cleaner, malt was just right with no hot alcohol; B+.

Awesome IPA. Had to work for this one. Tried at the same time as the elder. Younger was better. Smooth and delicious.

This definitely lives up to the hype. It is a very crisp, smooth taste. You taste the hops with out the bite at the end. Excellent!!

Crisp, clean and refreshing the 2015 Younger added a new hop to the lineup. Personally I enjoyed the 2014 better but the 2015 was better than the 2013. Lightly carbonated, this hopped up triple IPA is worth the wait in line. Pairs amazingly well with the outstanding pepperoni pizza that Russian River Brewery serves. 2/2015
