Had this on tap at RR and brought a bottle back. It's not the freshest bottle (about 5 weeks old), so I'm basing my review on the tap and bottle.
To be honest, after drinking this and Pliny in the same sitting (and afterwards in separate bottle sittings), I can see why people say that this rivals Pliny. It's a great beer.
The nose is very nice but not overpowering. The balance of the hops and the bite hits just perfect. The hop flavor is complex, as it hits you with citrus at first with a piney finish. Great IPA, and a pleasure to drink.
