look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5
A - light golden yellow, very fizzy with a solid 3/4" of fluffy white head - leading to lots of lacing
S - very aromatic hops, slight citrus, piney
T - piney and bitter at first, with a very distinct taste on the tongue (can't figure out what exactly it is)
M - very nice carbonation tickles the tongue and cheeks, crisp yet sweet
O - this is a really good beer in every single quality, however i think it may just be a tiny bit lacking in the taste aspect. maybe i was just expecting a little too much from such high and mighty reviews. i can't say i don't like it, because i'd be lying, it's a hell of a good beer but i have to say i have had beers (or ipa's) that have been better in the taste department.

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.
