Thanks for Sebowksi for the trade. Had Pliny a few times before. Very fresh bottle. 2/14/14 This will be my first 5.
A: Tranparent, almost glowing golden hue with hints of straw and orange when held to the light.
S: Huge aroma. Citrus, grapefruit, pine, earthy notes. Bready malt background. Papaya? I dont know. Not trying to decipher this completely.
T: Simply amazing. Citrus, grapefruit, papaya, pine, resin. Big malt body. Alcohol is definitely detectable at the end but I don't mind. Very balanced.
M: Rather heavy. Nice bitterness. Smooth and crisp.
O: Pliny is amazing. Even better when it is super fresh. Always try this beer if you have the opportunity. Wish we could get this out here more often. True to the DIPA form.
Serving type: bottle
