Unbelievable! Too good to be true!! Would have rated it higher, but frankly it's just so frighteningly bitter, as in bitter with a capital BITTER, almost as if the brewers just added more of everything to an already bitter monster beer. Would also have helped if I had actually tried this beer, which I have not. Chapeau.

Finally had this beer on tap. Very solid IPA. Interesting to taste this beer in light of today's IPA styles. I can see why this was an exciting beer when it was released. Very easy to drink for the ABV. Now I need to find Pliny The Younger!
