A-Nice golden, amber. Less than a finger in head with pretty good lacing throughout.
S-Fantastic graipfruit aroma with a nice hint of hops.
T-Very heavy fruit character that meshes with the double dose of hops well. Also pretty smooth with the right amount of carbonation.
M-Light to medium body, the beer goes down smooth.
D-For a Double IPA, it is very drinkable. Not exactly a session beer, but tasty none the less.
This was my first Pliny the Elder and after all of the phenomenal reviews, I had nothing but the highest of hopes. After my first attempt at the beer, I am impressed but at the same time not blown away or of the belief that this beer is "World Class". I have had a couple other DIPA's on its same playing field that did not receive such rave reviews.
