Looking forward to this beer for awhile. It didn't disappoint. Excellent. Though I think I prefer WW Pernicious.

Worth the wait...but Pernicious and Scofflaw Basement are better....

7/24/17 - Newport Brewery. Draft into pint glass. Pours a brilliant gold, light carbonation, small head and no retention. but lacing is very good. Aroma is piney hops and heavy citrus, tropical and resinous. Taste is less bitter than I expected for a DIPA. Hoppy, grapefruit and slight sweetness. Good IPA, worthy of it world class rating.

Overrated. Not sayings it's bad but average in my opinion.

Perfect. The combination of hops is excellent with a great flavor and just the right bitterness. But what separates this beer is the smooth balanced malty background. Been waiting to try this for a while, and it certainly didn't disappoint. profile - July 4, 2017

Strong west coast IPA but with all these new micro breweries popping up really won't go out of my way for pliney
