look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4 | overall: 5
Bottled on 12-28-2010
Served on a Beatles glass mug.
Appearance: This beer is a cloudy orange with a big fluffy head. The lacing is good but not impressive.
Smell: Somewhere between Grapefruit, Melon and Pineapple.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied but pleasantly creamy.
Taste: Again, as with the aroma, this beer is very fruity, but with a good amount of bitterness. The finish is very long....I get honeydew melon and pineapple.
Drinkability: Generally, I don't care for any form of IPA's, nevertheless, I think this beer is very pleasant. It definitely lives up to its hype. At first I thought it would be like any other Double IPA but this beer is certainly unique; it is one of the best tasting beers I have ever had. I just wish it were more available.

This beer is pure perfection in a Double IPA, the hops burst out in a perfect symphony of flavor leaving wants and needs for more on my tongue! A warm finish sets nicely in my beer belly and a desire to down endless glasses of this is set in motion! I reccomend this over any and all double's!

I know we don't need another person to review Pliny, but…
A Very nice golden orange with some nice bubbling and lacing around the glass-good amount of head
S Intense pine with an assortment of hop varietals.
T Very piney up front, a bit rounded out by malt. Very clean aftertaste and very drinkable.
M Very delicate and very well balanced in terms of the carbonation. This is very pleasant on the palate.
O I think this is a great beer in terms of the drinkability; however, I think that this beer could be a little more complex. I think this is a very pine forward beer and that the hop varietals do not offer anything aside from said pine. I would like to see some citrus or a bit more malt. Overall, this is a fine beer, albeit a bit less complex and compelling than the populace at large might assert.
