A: Pours a translucent golden yellow with single finger, ginger-colored, tight creamy and bubbly off-white head. Nice sticky lacing all over the glass.
S: Strong aromas of sweet citrus and floral hops. Individual aromas of tangerine & pink grapefruit. Lots of underlying bready malts -- extremely inviting aroma.
T: Sweet fruity malts followed by a light bitterness pop. From the smell, you think you're are gonna get slammed with hops. But Pliny is one of the most composed and balanced DIPA's I've ever tasted.
M. "Wow factor" -- real luscious. Coats the palette nicely -- real smooth like a baby's bottom. Best part of the beer right here. Everything melds well.
D: One of the most balanced brews yet. Alcohol not very noticeable. Could be a candidate for a session-able DIPA.
Serving type: on-tap
