Pliny the Elder, meet your East Coast rival.
Let's just say that I'm very impressed with Southern Tier's latest offering of hoppy goodness. Bottle poured into pint glass.
A- Yellowy-orange. A bit on the pale side- wish it were a little orange-r in color. Good clarity. Fluffy, 1" thick milkshake head that leaves great lacing.
S- Sweet citrus, pineapple and pine nose. A bit subdued for what's to come in the...
T- Citrus hop & lingering bitterness well balanced out by a brief sweet sticky maltiness that makes an appearance but does not overwhelm or destroy the delicious, delicious hoppiness.
M- Sticky & solid medium body. Mild carbonation. Very smooth drinking.
D- Damn good though these'll quickly put you on your a**.

A - Slightly hazy yellow orange beer with short tight head that fades quickly to a film and extensive lacing.
S - Solid nose of pine, grapefruit citrus, floral notes, with a mild honeyed element, presumably from the malt.
T - Stronger honey couples with a hint of lemon and a certain medicinal element. Another IPA that reminds me of a honey lemon throat lozenge, not that that is a bad thing. This is a pretty delicious brew. Middle comes with some bitterness, and that runs through the close. At the end, the honey comes back, offering a touch of sweetness.
M - Mild carbonation means the bitterness and hop oils hang around. Not a sign of the serious alcohol, though, which is a significant accomplishment.
O - This is a solid double IPA, with bright flavors. An added benefit is this quite drinkable for a DIPA. I will pick this one up again, I suspect.
