Very nice IPA. I was amazed that I could get a glass here in eastern PA profile - May 23, 2016
B. Good hop aroma and taste, a bit thin on malt body. Basic old time hops,

I remember when I found this and Im still kicking myself for not reviewing it then. Walked into a cigar store in Del Mar CA for a Daily Racing Form while on vacation. I looked across the room to the cooler along the wall and saw this ugly logo'ed beer...Pliny. I knew that this was a sought after IPA but I didn't realize how rare it was at the time. I bought two, there were four or five left in the cooler. After getting back to the room, I cracked one open...Nirvana! OMG it was good! I told my wife we had to go back in the AM before going to the track so I could buy the rest...when I got there in the morning, they were gone.

Truly delicious. Had one at Monti's Rotisserie with dinner 5-12-2016, surprised how sweet and full-bodied it was considering all the hops they use.

It's the seasonal that people line up around the block at Russian River to grab one pint of. Total Wine only allowed one per person per day. Kyle got one to get me two. :) Is it worth the hype? Yup. It's a great beer! Is it the best beer I've ever had? No. Still, it's a great beer worth grabbing. profile - May 1, 2016
Best IPA I've ever had. Citrus hoppiness. Just plain great.
