HUGE thanks to glazeman for this one. Bottled on 6/7/10 - nice and fresh.

A - Beautiful looking IPA - hazy copper with a one finger head with nice retention and decent legs. Looked very similar to Pliny the Elder.

S - Citrus hops up front, followed by piney hops. The best part of the aroma was the sweet malt backbone that followed the scent of the tropical fruit and piney hops.

T - Outstanding. In my opinion, this one is better than Pliny the Elder. The taste is very similar to the smell, except that the malt backbone in the finish is slightly less pronounced in the taste than it is in the aroma. The hop layers in Blind Pig are out of this world - oranges, tangerines, mango, and lemons followed by intense Christmas trees. Just wonderful.

M - Pretty good. A bit under-carbonated for a regular IPA, but still a great mouthfeel.

D - Very drinkable. As this one warmed up a bit, the layers of hops became even more pronounced and kept me wanting more. One bottle is surely not enough.

Poured a clear yellow. The head had great retention and left a decent lacing.

Aroma was very floral and a slight note of orange peel and grains of paradise.

Mouth feel was a little thin but the flavor is very bold. The flavor was piney, grassy with hints of black pepper and straw or hay.

This beer finishes very long and leaves a resin feel on the tongue, with notes of orange pith and kiwi rind.

Serving type: on-tap
