3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap at City Beer SF. Hazy gold/orange. Plenty of thick pine, grassiness, and juicy citrus in the aroma, good bit of grapefruit and light tropical notes in there. Taste is pine-oriented, with a nice sharp dollop of citrus and some juicier orange/grapefruit notes. Some grassiness towards the end. Lingering pine and grapefruit bitterness, very very crisp. Only a little hint of semi-honeyed biscuit malt in there to counteract the big hop hit. Great full flavoured use of hops, very tasty.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured a two fingers of head on a fairly clear straw colored body.
The aroma is a great mix of grapefruit, orange, touch of lemon and grain.
The taste is bold grapefruit bitter with lemon and a slight orange sweet finish. Nicely done.
The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation.
Enjoyable and bold.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tiny Pliny, with 6.1% rather than 8% ABV. Hoppy, cirtusy, piney nose with good head and lasting lace. Delivers a flawless IPA experience with a long, clean finish. Very much a Pliny Jr.

Bottle, orangish pour. 2-3oz sample. Solid IPA, very nice. Probably a victim of predetermined amazingness. Great bitterness, well balanced. Great mouthfeel. Need a whole fresh bottle to myself
