A- Pours a clear gold with a huge foamy head. The head sticks around for a while and never really goes away.
S- It's a huge piney hop smell. I could smell it when it a couple of feet away away. It's like I'm walking though a pine forest.
T- A huge hoppy bitter taste I was however expecting more from the way it smelled. I think it is a wonderful bloom as it sits on the tongue.
M- Thick body with a wonderful smoothness mixed with the carbonation.
O- Some really great things are happening with this beer and it is one of the top IPAs I have had, but the rumors of the greatness have disappointed. I can't believe that Zombie Dust doesn't have a better score than this, but thats life. I think I will have a zombie dust right now.

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.
