look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance - A nice light orange / yellowish hue, Decent amount of tight white bubbly head.

Smell - Big west coast hops, grapefruit, peaches, mangoes. Very floral. Smells INCREDIBLE

Taste - There it is, the infamous pliny. Everything i had hoped for and more. Follows the nose. Nice tropical fruits, very little bitterness and incredibly juicy and refreshing. Oh yes, thank you for this beer RR.

Mouthfeel - Nice chewiness and carbonation.

Overall - Such a phenomenal beer, a beer all IPAs should aspire to be, was it worth the hunt? Yes. Will i be needing to trade and trade for it on the east coast to keep my hop fix intact? Not at all. Flower Power and Heady topper are just as good. Phenomenal world class beer though.
