Beer Tasting: Russian River Pliny the Elder

Russian River - Pliny the Elder Double/Imperial IPA

Have you tasted this beer? Let us know what you think. As a suggestion, try to keep the review as brief as possible for each of the following: appearance; smell; taste; mouthfeel; and drinkability.

Appearance Adam: golden apricot Bryan: nice gold color with a nice hop-supported head
Smell Adam: smash hops in your hands, hop heaven Bryan: Holy Hops! In your face and loving it
Taste Adam: wow...the taste lives up to the nose Bryan: clean flavors of hops, hops, and eh hops...yeah!
Mouthfeel Adam: not bad for the bottom of the growler Bryan: smooth, bold, and full of texture
Drinkability Adam: all night baby ;-) Bryan: did we just find another 8% "session beer"?! oh yeah
Seconds? Adam: do you have a keg I can take home? Bryan: yes, please, bring more to the East Coast!
