Smell of sweet tropical fruit, appearance is clear gold with fluffy white head, taste is nice juicy fruit with a malty smoothness that kills the hoppy bitterness.

WOB Denver... Pours cloudy golden, perfect head that lingers. Aroma is fresh pine, weed, floral and fruit. First sip delicious, bitter but refreshing, awakening. Palate is clean. Great overall beer. Served in a snifter type.

Pours a nice clear golden color with white head. Pine, grapefruit, citrus, and some spruce on the nose; follows onto the palate. Not bad, but overhyped.

UPDATED: JUN 16, 2014 Keg at Russian River’s Brewery Tap, Santa Rosa, CA. Amazing grapefruit smell with strong tropical fruits. Could smell it the second it was served to me! Taste is beautifully fruity, plenty of grapefruit, mango, tropical fruits, bit of lemon and lime with some malt. Amazing nicely balanced bitter finish. This was the highlight of my trip to Sonoma County and it did not disappoint one bit. Just incredible and the pinnacle of brewing excellence.

Instantly fills the room with its incredible smell. Pours with a beautiful golden color. First taste is so crisp with hops fruits and malts. Finishes with such a nice sweet flavor. All I can say is AMAZING

Tasted from draft. Pours a clear gold with white head. Aroma is floral, pine and resin hops. Some mild floral notes. Taste is incredibly smooth. Goes down way too easy. Nice clean bitterness balanced by a very nice malt backbone. One of the most balanced IPAs I've ever had. Pine, floral, caramel, grapefruit taste. Excellent beer. Definitely one of the best.

if you can get your hands on it, one of the most enjoyable IPAs you could ask for. pours a slightly hazy amber with a fast-dissapearing head. nose offers balanced notes of citrus, hops, and some pine. tastes of citrus on the front end followed by a mouthful of gloriously bitter hops...which will linger till your next sip. awesome!

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
A: Pours a light amber hue with minimal head and thin lacing, very clean and clear
A: piney, citrusy American hop notes, but not intense. Faint biscuit aromas from the underlying malt profile
T: light bitterness up front with plenty of citrus hop flavors, grapefruit, maybe a little mango or pineapple, not as piney as I thought it would be; the beer is light without tasting watery, medium length, bitter but not too bitter finish. as it warms up, bitterness and hop flavors dissipate slightly to reveal a slightly sweet, biscuity malt profile. Overall, very easy on the palate for an imperial/double IPA.
M: overall very light, not overbearing. Smooth carbonation
O: Lives up to the hype, and at less that $6 a bottle you really can’t beat it

Pliney is a benchmark IPA, clean with a crisp fermentation profile, on the bitter side, does not have the hit you in your face hop character as other popular ipas
