Very crisp double IPA-lots of flavor and some kick. profile - August 4, 2016
A very smooth double IPA that doesn't have that double IPA alcohol taste presence

Beer is awesome. Dry hopped fresh can't complain. Grab this beer every time and it's always consistent.

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. Had the double dry hopped version 3-24-21 and it seemed even lighter in body, very good and refreshing, probably still a B.

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.
