Yes, very fresh and piney something recent batches of Pliny has been lacking. Couldn’t put this beer down. Worth pouring into a nice ipa glass as the presentation is outstanding, and the legs worth noting. Hope they brew this recipe year round!

On tap at Bear Republic. What a wonderful DIPA. Intense aromatic hops, good mouthfeel, beautiful lacing, rich orange-golden color.

Tap @ Capital Ale Downtown. I may have found a new favorite. I always like their Racer 5. Clean big hops + long hop finish. Perfumey stuff comes up as it warms. Like Ruination, my current favorite. I think I’ll have to have them side by side- more than once- just to be sure...

Aroma is very floral and grapefruity. Color is great but the head discipates pretty quickly. Taste like one of the best ipa i have had, its right up with racer 5. Finishes smooth. Really good ipa...

Mostly clear slight pearlescent green gold, with a light head. Big piny hop aromas . Big pine and backed up by a grapefruit bitter but it rinses with light lasting bite but so smooth for how big it is.

Smells delicious. Most pleasing aroma I've experienced other than Heady Topper. Huge grapefruit flavors and quite hoppy. Delicious.

UPDATED: MAY 6, 2014 Wow. aroma is a huge, massive citrus BOMB. Nice piney notes as well. There’s a nice breadiness in the aroma, really balances nicely with the massive hop presence. Taste is just unbelievable. Fantastically bitter, it’s like drinking fresh squeezed grapefruit, mango, pineapple, orange, and any other citrus/tropical fruit juice that exists. Slightly sticky mouthfeel, dry finish. This is just a wonderful beer to drink, and a great DIPA. Surprised it’s not rated a 100.

Tap at their brew pub. A great D-IPA! I think highly of Racer 5, and for me, this is a high water mark for D-IPAs like Racer 5 is for IPAs. Great hop presence, bitter is kept in balance and a wonderful color.

UPDATED: MAY 1, 2014 Sampled on draft at the House of 1000 Beers this beer poured a hazy orange-amber color with a medium sized foamy orange-white head that lingered and left great lacing. The aroma was very strong orange, moderate lemon, pine, pineapple and grapefruit. The flavor was sweet and tangy caramel, honey, strong orange and grapefruit and moderate lemon, pineapple and pine. The finish was very long and sweet with honey, orange and grapefruit lingering. Thick and full body. Wonderful!
