Picked up some Pliny last week in California and was very fresh. Printed date of production was two weeks ago. There is nothing to not like about this medium bodied beer - Pours a nice golden yellow, smells woodsy/fruity, mouth feel is good with not too much carbonation and doesn't linger for a whole lot of after taste. World class, but hard to obtain here on the east coast.

Golden color with medium white head. Fantastic aromatic hoppy aroma with oranges, tangerines, grapefruit, grapefruit zest, pines. Taste starts sweet fruity with oranges, tangerines, lychee, pineapples, continues with strong portion of aromatic hops. Long very hoppy bitter finish. Very tasty.
