I have not done a review in the few years I have been on BA, but I have been willing to discuss my opinions on certain matters like Beer Karma, Wales, and other issues driven by scarcity and quality of certain brews. I finally took the time to have Pliny the Younger today and was quite disappointed. Not in the overall quality of the beer, but of the overall power behind the beer. If you live in California, you should have normal access to beers that are on an even, if not better, keel with PtY, on an every day basis. I had a Hop Venom up in Portland that I would say was equal to, if not better, than my experience today. This years Hopaclypse had a bigger hop profile. Simtra, Hop-Craic, Hopsickle,Racer 10,De-nogginzer, even Hoptimum, in my opinion, all represent a better, solid attempt at a TIPA, than Younger. So without me coming off like a brew curmudgeon, does someone want to tell me what I am missing?
