3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a hazy amber gold with medium white head. Aroma of citrusy hops, orange shavings, and maybe a little honey sweetness. Flavor is hoppy and grassy with pine and caramel. Medium bodied with an oily mouthfeel. Its a very solid IPA.

Finally get to try this after a trade with mdg164, thanks! 5 week old bottle. Pours orange gold with a big clingy white head. Aroma is soft, grapefruit and pine resin on top of caramel. Mildly caramel malt backbone gives way to grapefruit and pine resin hop. Oily grapefruit peel hop bitterness in the finish. This is essentially PtE light.

Fad: Taster og pint på brewpub. Orangegul klar øl. Meget frisk, med masser af citrus og bitterhed. Gammeldags IPA med for meget bitterhumle. Superfrisk og ellers lidt kedelig i forhold til forventningerne.

Very nice IPA. Beautiful medium amber color. Lots of pine and grapefruit on the nose. Light malt in taste. Higher carbonation. An excellent beer, but I should have had it before the pliny.

Draft at monks cafe in Philly. Hoppy, dark citrus, pine, strong bitter finish with a sticky resin note that lingers. Interesting combination of flavors and mouthfeel with a pretty high carb. Strong spice bite on the finish that stands out. Very good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Golden (lagerish) pour. Aroma is mild hops, not massive fruits. taste is hops, mild (sessional) sweetness, crisp floral bitterness. Finish is perfect - leaves you wanting more. Overall, a lovely India Pale.

Strange that I’ve never rated this one before. Bottled on 060314 - Pours a fine white head. Body is crystal clear light orange. Pine resin very prevalent in the aroma. No doubt this is an IPA! Obvious hop character in the flavor as well. Bitterness lingers on the palate. But, it’s not huge. Nice normal mouthfeel. I actually like it 100 times better than Pliny the Younger!
