Thanks to some awesome friends for letting me taste this gem. Poured out of a bottle into a pint glass.

Beer pours a beautiful rich golden color with a thick white head. Nice lacing.

Smell is exceptional. Tons of pine hops, some citrus. Everything you would want in the bouquet of a DIPA.

Taste is OMG amazing! Rarely does anything truly live up to expectations, but Pliny definitly did. Great, simply great. Pine hops dominate from the start. The citrus comes into play somewhere in the middle. Great, bready malt backbone gives this one a nice balance. I LOVE THIS.

Mouthfeel is creamy. Almost nitro creamy... out of a freaking bottle. This beer is deserving of all the praise it gets.

Overall I couldn't have enjoyed this more. The people that shared this with me deserve great Karma to come there way. This was on my bucket list of beers and it lived up to everything. Great beer. Nice work Russian River... I am not worthy.
