Smooth floral notes, malt seems to balance the hops extremely well

Strong aromas of piney weed. Excellent finish. Very hoppy.

Absolutely undrinkable. Pine Sol. Not just bitter and hoppy. Astringent and medicinal.

Russian River is bomb! Once ur done with Pliny, pick up a bottle of "Damnation".

Aroma Sweet, malty, strong piney notes Flavor Piney, bitter, malty, and dry bitter finish profile - July 17, 2011
Very clean beer with a really wonderful aftertaste. Citrus or grapefruit aroma.

Charter fan of this beer although I had to quit (How does the saying go? "If you love something let it go..,") due to the terrible hangover. Wonderfully aromatic with slightly out of balance extreme bitterness. I could swear it has a higher alcohol content than the advertised 8%; I'm totally dysfunctional the day after. Unless of course I start my day with another! Best on draught.

Had at Neighborhood in San Diego. Excellent very hoppy Update: got a second taste at the Russian River brew pub 6/28/12. Still amazing. Surprisingly malty for such a hoppy Double IPA. Definitely a must try.
