I always preferred Blind Pig to Pliny TE, which seems like heresy to some folks. That tad less alcohol makes it just about perfect, IMO. Definitely a beer you have to try at least once in your life, wherever you live. Fortunately I’,m lucky enough to be able to have it much more often!

Bottle at home from a trade with fellow Beoir members, couriered by Reuben, cheers all![brbottled 1st Dec 14
Pours hazy pale amber, fluffy beige head and bright tropical fruits (passion fruit, yuzu) on the nose. Medium body and carbonation, fruity, moderately bitter, plenty of fruityness with an undertone of digestive malt, very easy drinking.

Arômes de pins, de sapin avec une légère base de caramel. En bouche corps moyen qui supporte parfaitement l’amertume et les saveurs bien dosés de houblon sapinés. Excellent

ACHops (796) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 18, 2015
On tap @ Russian River. Pours bright golden copper with thin lacy white head. Aroma is light crisply sweet caramel malt, fresh medium hops with notes of grass, pine, and earth. Taste is similar - crisp light caramel malt and lots of hop flavor. I get notes of grapefruit, pine, and lemon. Super flavorful, and very impressive given the light body and abv. Just like Pliny, this has the flavor that other beers add +1-2% abv trying to accomplish. Really fresh tasting too, not surprising given I’m at the brewpub...

Pours clear gold with fairly active carbonation, white head. Aroma is floral and tropical fruity. Very light body, super crisp and clean. All hops, lots of tropical and floral, pine, and even a little cat pee (simcoe?). Excellent.

badhack (354) - San Francisco, California, USA - JAN 3, 2015
Draft at Toronado. A solid IPA of the very bitter vs very flavorful variety. Solid malt backbone, on the lighter side, citrus and pine hops and a long bitter finish. On the dry side. Clean and not a hint of off flavors. Went well with the sausages from Rosamunde.

From the tap at Toronado in San Francisco. Pour is clear apple juice golden with a thin head. Nose is citrus, tropical fruits with lots of floral hops. Taste is loads of fresh floral hops and citrus flavors with a long crisp bitter finish. Solid caramel malt backbone. Great IPA!

Another solid IPA from Russian River. Not too intense and not too absent, this is a great go-to brew for nearly any occasion.

PhilHarmstead (22) - Vermont, USA - DEC 13, 2014
Exceedingly fresh dry hop flavors. Surprisingly bright & citrusy while also piney and resinous (without the least hint of syrupy-ness). Killer IPA. So glad to have tried it on a snowed-in night with friends in northern Vermont.
