Today I went to eat at Chez Panisse Cafe and I couldn't help but order this beer. First, I had yet to try it. Second, it is highly rated. And last, but not least, the restaurant has a half pint size!*

In any case, my half pint Russian River Blind Pig IPA had a great hoppy, IPA smell. The beer arrived with a thick head, but it quickly dissipates.

Possibly due to my cold, I found this IPA had a light taste.

The beer had a light straw color and created a decent amount of lacing.

It was tasty and had no bitter aftertaste.

While the half pint is two-thirds the cost of a pint, the size was perfect for lunch (and for being sick). 1:12PM PT

*That's half the reason why I love Yard House! Note that Perdition Smokehouse also has a half pint option.
