Enjoyed on-tap @ Toronado in San Francisco, CA.
Visiting from New Jersey, I was very excited to try both this bar and some Russian River beers. My girlfriend and I settled up to the bar, she ordered a Schneider and I dove head first into the Pliny.
Bright orange in color with a thick, creamy, white head. Tons of citrus and fresh hops in the aroma. Very appealing. The flavor lived up to my hopes. Strong, bitter grapefruit and pineapple that is nicely balanced out by bready malts. Rings along the side of the tulip glass all the way down. So drinkable for a double IPA. Not usually my favorite style, but this beer won me over. World class, a must try.
Serving type: on-tap
