Handbottle from MrBendo. Aroma: Pretty similar to the Elder but with a bit with less sweetness and a more resinous character. Strong citrus, resin and pine, and a light floral note. Appearance: Light amber in color and slightly hazed. Off-white head was small and foamy with decent retention. Fair lacing. Flavor: Lightly sweet malt with a touch of honey. Hops kick in with a strong pine and resin notes, grapefruit and mango, and some light floral and grass into the finish. Bitterness is much more aggressive than the Elder, but not unpleasant. Dry finish with hop flavors and bitterness carrying over. Alcohol comes out stronger as it warms. Palate: Mediu-full bodied. Moderate carbonation. Some light alcohol warming in back of the mouth. Overall: Its hard to decide which of the Plinys I like more. This one is definitely more over the top with hop flavor and bitterness.

UPDATED: FEB 11, 2008 Growler from Capones. Golden-amber with a small head. Aroma is a pleasant and overwhelming bouquet of HOPS!!! - Heavy & Bitter citrus, strong flowery-pine. Extremely sticky hop flavor in addition to some sweet citrus and malt flavors, plus just a bit of alcohol. Overwhelmingly hop heavy and wonderful. The Elder is a very nice DIPA - but as a hophead, this one goes a step further.........Well done!

Draught at Capones Nice golden body with thin head. A very hoppy citrusy aroma. Flavor is a very smooth hoppy taste - citrusy - with a good syrupy mouthfeel. Nice carbonation and a refreshing taste. Probably one of the smoothest, well rounded IIPAs Ive ever had.

Sampled most recently on draft at Capones (Norristown, PA) 4/18/07. Poured golden with a minimal white head. Aroma is all hops, with notes of grapefruit. Big hop flavor, hop resin coats the mouth and lingers on the palate. Some warming alcohol in the finish. I dont consider myself a hophead, but i really enjoyed this beer.

Arayaga2 (2158) - portland, Oregon, USA - APR 19, 2007
UPDATED: APR 29, 2015 Basic clear gold... not much to look at. But the aroma is a hoppy floral nectar with a distinctly peachy note to it. Best of all, it tastes like it smells, and perhaps just a bit better. $5.75/10 ozs

Full body of hop bitterness and nice fruit and pine. Good depth and with not a strong alcohol presence. Only till you are into the pint do you feel the alcohol man! Awesome Brew!

draft @ obriens - very pale gold color, very little head. strong pine aroma with a flavor to match. some sweetness but mostly pine and lemon hops. quite bitter finish that coasts your mouth. you can feel the hops just eating the enamel off your teeth.

UPDATED: APR 22, 2008 On tap at Obrians, Liars Club, and other San Diego County beer havens. An awesome triple IPA that I try and get my hands on whenever released. I like to say that the Elder is better, however it is always a tough comparison because I love them both so damn much. Clear dark golden color, usually with a nice rich and creamy white head and lacing (depending on location and tap). Mouth-watering pine forest aroma! Resiny, thick and malty...just what I look for in this type of beer! Like a sack of danky, sticky weed. Not as crisp compared to the Elder, but this stuff is amazing!

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 14, 2007
(Hand bottle 33 cl) Slightly hazy amber golden with a small, off-white head. sweetish aroma of peaches and pine. Fairly full-bodied with sweetish, malty accents, lots of sweet fruit and then a bitter - but not overly so - finish. 060407
