Big thanks to my boy ALANO for hooking me up with my freshest Plinys to date! Had this bad boy before but never this fresh.
Bottled 7/28/2010 <--this sucker is only 2 weeks old!!!!
A - Pours a golden/straw color with some haziness. Two fingers of cloudy bright white head that look amazing dissipate pretty quick but leaves some serious lace as i kill this thing.
S - A MAY ZING! Just tons of pine and citrus but unlike any other DIPA I have ever smelled. Floral hops, some grassyness, just an amazing bouquet of aromas here.
T - BEERGASM!! slightly bitter up front but it fades fast and lets way to some sweet citrusy notes. Pine, grapefruit,the hops are so balanced here but ever-present. Very refreshing for a DIPA. Just amazing.
M/D - Perfect level of carbonation. Slightly bitter and dry on the finish but not at all unpleasant. Amazing flavor profile keeps you coming back for more and more. I would drink this every day if I could. As of right now, this is hands down the best DIPA I have ever had.
