This beer is somewhat hard to find in my area but I was finally able to get a bottle and see if it lives up to the hype.
Poured from the bottle the thick white head sits atop the hazy golden beer. Hops dominate the aroma with stong pine and more subtle fresh fruit notes. The carbonation is just right. This is a smooth drinking beer.
This tastes terrific! Piny hops and some bitterness but not out of control. Russian River has kept this beer in perfect balance. Some alcohol later on. A refreshing sipper.
I'm a believer. Pliny is as good as they say.
