Poured into DFH snifter.. 8/25/10 bottling date
Pours a hazy orange amber with a generous white fluffy head that doesn't quit. Leaves copious amounts of lacing on the side of the glass. Aroma is floral, citrus, pineapple and resin.. There is a very citrus-y, sweet quality overall. Being a west coast dIPA, I expected lip smacking bitterness but there a a great deal of balance here that I find it very drinkable. Piney, and earthy hops on the back of my tongue. Decent amount of carbonation that I find just right for this type of beer. Very drinkable. I don't find that my tongue takes a lashing from the bitterness.
I really enjoy Pliny, as I've had it more than a few times before finally sitting down to review it. It's awesome with a big, greasy bacon cheeseburger! I don't think it's that great standing on it's own though..
