4.58/5 rDev +4.8%
look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Appearance: A nice head on this one. About a fingers worth and impressive residual strength. The color is an orange that falls just beyond amber. About 12 SRM.
Scent: I get a lot of citrus from this Double IPA. A bit of grapefruit really shines through. The maltiness accompanying the hop aroma provides a sweetness that pairs well together. I’m getting a hint of orange on the finish. I think this is more of a combination of the sweet malt and the citrus hops than actual orange peel.
Taste: The maltiness in Gandhi-Bot provides a sweetness that I don’t usually find in Double IPAs. The malt quickly gets pushed out of the way by the strong hop flavors. I get a bit more pine on the mouth than I did the aroma. On the finish is a strong, resiny bitterness with just a hint of the malt to counter it.
Mouthfeel: I would say the mouth on this borders on the heavy end. The sweetness of the malt brings along with it a heavier body than normal. I would say it’s between the medium to heavy range. The harsh bitterness is the lasting impression you get from this one.
Overall: I’m righting this review about a week after tasting Pliny for the first time. This Double IPA definitely holds it’s own. I have heard very good things about it and I can agree. It has a strong bitterness on the finish but that’s usually to be expected with a Double IPA.

12oz can poured into a teku
A: Gandhi Bot pours a bright, orange-copperish shade of gold. It's hazy, unfiltered, and really good looking.
S: Crisp aromas of candied citrus, tropical fruits, and pine. Very pleasant-smelling beer.
T: Bitter and malty, but not much of the flavors the nose promised. The beer does deliver a beautiful dry and bitter finish. Little disappointed with the flavor of this one.
M: Probably the highlight of the beer for me: crisp, creamy, and refreshing.
O: Thanks to a great BA for throwing me this as an extra. A good beer I enjoyed quite a bit, but the taste just wasn't there for me. Looks great, smells good, and tastes not bad.
