The real pliny was drier/less sweet than the AHS. This is more likely attribute to the brew process than the kit. I enjoyed the slight more sweetness.
We had ALOT of loss to the hops so make sure you use enough water to start.
Same here. It was way too bitter for my tastes, and I love hop bombs. I mean it was seriously over-the-top bitter. I had a serious problem racking this beer due to the huge amount of hops in it, then it clogged my keg poppits. It was all worth it though.
