This was released this morning at my local bottle shop. It was released at eleven am, I was the eleventh person in line, the beer is eleven percent abv, and it was gone in eleven minutes.... crazy.
A- Pliny the Younger pour a glowing deep yellow with practically no head at all, which is okay for me.
S- As I take a big whiff I smell loads of pine all the way. There's also a big burst of citrus as well, just as I expected.
T- Crazy amount of hop bitterness to start. More piny notes continue to come through with lots and lots of grapefruit citrus notes as well.
M- It's actually a bit light bodied than I expected. Very medium bodied with a bit of tingly carbonation. It leaves a very interesting alcohol coating as I swallow. A bit hard to describe but still incredible.
O- Very glad I got to try this. Absolutely incredible! Very complex, super hoppy and all around goodness. I don't think it's overrated, I don't think it's underrated. I think it's spot on!
Serving type- On tap poured into a 10oz snifter. Thanks for reading.
Serving type: on-tap
