I can't get Pliny here in NY so I might put this on the list, though how does it taste compared to something like Ruination? More citrus, piney, grassy?

Regardless, the recipe looks awesome!

Got a friend who recently moved to Vegas. I've got him by the balls because he LOVES Oberon and can't get it out there. I've promised him some in a couple weeks if he can find me some Pliny. In the mean time Ive brewed my first IIPA. It's along the lines of Hopslam. Gonna add the dry-hop shot on Friday and bottle a week later. I'm hoping to drink it while I fawn over the nine hop plants in my yard this spring/summer.

Man, I'm finally enjoying a proper pint of this and the SWMBO keeps looking over at me and wondering why I'm cooing like a fat & happy baby.

I'm going to free up a carboy and get another one of these going ASAP.

Is the Corn Sugar added purely to boost the gravity? I'm assuming this goes in the boil as well?

Awesome. I think my pocketbook is going to be hurting, I'm getting more and more into hop bombs. Luckily I already have 1 lb of centennial.

oh man, it took me awhile to figure out that the IBU's were "off the chart" I couldn't find the magic dot on the grid...then I saw it floating off in space way over on the right.

Boost the ABV and help the beer dry out more so it's not cloyingly sweet.

I was floating off in space a bit after two pints last night.

You know what, I will make a deal with anyone that wants to swap some Pliny inspired IPA's. And since I live at the source of that lovely river, I might be able to include one or two bottles of the sweet heavenly juice if you talk nicely to me and maybe send something as unique and inspiring. Of course, I only have so much money and I spend most of it brewing, so I can't help everyone out. Spring is here, so I can ship while the weather is nice.

I have an IPA kegged and one in primary about to get dry hopped. Both started close to 1.080 and are succulent. What an excellent word, like biting into the ravioli I made last night, supple is another great word. Man, I am getting all hot and bothered now....
