I finally got a chance at their Pliny the Younger which is a double IPA. I have to admit that I was left wondering what the big deal is. Extremely tasty but lacking something.

Part of the problem with these big hoppy monsters is the freshness. Or lack thereof.

The only proper way to compare them would be to have them all side-by-side less than a week old.
