Solid, really, really solid. Great beer. Lots of citrus and piney hops bursting through the can. Extremely smooth and delicious going down. Smooth, really smooth.

But let's be real, Pliney is still the king. This is a great beer, but Pliney is still in a league of its own. The hype of some competitors is real, but the champ is still the champ.

Serving type: can
