daleharshman (1039) - Escondido, California, USA - JUN 15, 2009
Bomber from brewery. Pours gold-range with a half finger of off-white head. Strong hoppy nose, mainly of grapefruit and pine. Sharp hop flavor of grapefruit and resin but nicely balanced with malt. It’s plenty bitter, but not overwhelming. Medium bodied with a nice lingering hop bitterness.

gkost (1709) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JUN 14, 2009
Pours gold. Smells of BIG citrus, pine and malt sweetness. Straight up oranges, flowers, lemon, hop bitterness flavors. Lingering bitter finish. Beautiful IIPA!

KyotoLefty (9127) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUN 14, 2009
Bottle at thrashzone. Aroma of citrusy hops and a touch of caramel and honey. Big malt flavor with storng hops, dark fruits, cherry, some vanilla. Sweet, but with big alcohol and a strong hop finish. Cloying in the mouth, though, with not so good balance.

MullMan (1099) - New York, USA - JUN 13, 2009
bottle from the beer exchange, charleston SC. body is amber-orange, and yellow gold at the edges. off-white fluffy tall head. aroma is very hoppy grapefruit, some pine needles and a little floral. Flavor has a little bit of sweet caramel maltyness but mostly dominant pine/bitter citrus hop flavor. strong hop finish and alcohol pretty well hidden, aftertaste holds good.

sauceyhops (104) - carlsbad, California, USA - JUN 13, 2009
Bottle from Newport Pizza in OB. Hazy orange pour with no real head to speak up. Aroma of hops and citrus with a little bit of a sweet kick. The mouth feel is smooth and a little heavy. Strong flavor of fresh, piney hops but it is very well balanced with a semi-sweet carmel malt. All around, it’s a solid IIPA

dmschefke (576) - Macomb, Michigan, USA - JUN 10, 2009
Pours a hazy amber orange with medium off-white head. Aroma very pleasant of a nice hops balance, citrus, pine, grass, and a bit of caramel. Flavor matches well and doesn’t have that overdone flavor of some poor attempts at IIPAs. Overall, very nice.

josephselander (42) - Salem, Oregon, USA - JUN 8, 2009
Appearance – Pours a beautiful hazy orange color with light yellow tinge. The head is a yellowish off-white color about 1 finger in size. This looks awesomely juicy and delicious. Smell – Smells great too! Lots of grapefruit and what I believe to be either cascade or centennial hops overwhelm the nose. Taste – This has a great stage of act after act of awesome flavors. It first starts off with a blast of grapefruit, tangerines, and citrus tingling. The middle is full of bitter mouth-puckering awesomeness. Finally it is ended with a floral hop flavor that lasts and taunts you to take another sip. Mouthfeel – This is resinous in the kind of way that I love. It sticks around like tree sap in your mouth and lets you fully experience the flavor profile of this wonderful beer. Drinkability – Wow, great beer. Although, I shared this with a buddy and I still got a massive buzz. I haven’t eaten anything for almost 12 hours though, so that may be why. I wish I could drink a million of these, absolutely awesome brew.

This beer is as close as it gets to duplicating "The Pliny" With that said. It is very good. I really don’t know what else to say. If you can’t get Pliny then get this instead.

Poured hazy yellow with white head. Loads of citrus and hops in the aroma. Very citrusy with a wet finish.
