Came out to California from Alabama for Coachella and some R&R and finally got to drink Pliny for the first time. Oh my....

That's all I can say.

Sub'd so I can find it easily...

I've been reliably informed there's not a hope in hell of me getting hold of this in the UK, so looks like I'm gonna have to make it myself.

I live in NY state and have never seen it around here. I did have it once when a friend brought some back from the west coast.

Gravity after 8 days is 1.012 had a taste out of the test tube . Still very bitter but I definitely tastes the Pliny notes! I can't wait for the final product!

I brewed this and after 7 days I've gone from 1.070 to 1.011--this has virtually been a perfect brew so far. I used 3 Hopshots (first time using them) from NB for the 90 minute addition and 45. I did 12 ML for the 90 minute and 3 ML for the 45 minute. Taste is great for only 7 days--lots of flavor. I did a 2L starter with WY1056...I read Vinnie's plug about slightly underpitching double IPA's to protect the hop flavor...I'm dying to try this one! I also did a 40 minute hop stand with the 0 minute hops.

I'm going to CC this in a few days, and do half the dry hopping for 5 days in primary and then transfer to secondary and 5 more days for the second dry hopping.

So I brewed up a 12 G batch of this and used mostly leaf hops. Ended up with about 10G into the fermenters. Lots of loss due to all that mass of hops! I mashed at 150F using my new RIMS system and could not be happier as to how my system performed. This was a LOT of work to produce this beer. I had to constantly stir with all the hops in solution to prevent boil over...did not help it was 105F and 70+% humidity in the shade! I am fermenting with Safale 05 at 62. Should take about 11 or 12 days to complete fermentation. I hit all gravity numbers on the nose. Aroma was outstanding! Will transfer to keg to secondary and dry hop using my stainless steel hop spider. Most important thing with this beer is to avoid oxidation during secondary and dry hopping! Do that, and you will have a world class beer to drink and share with your friends! Cheers!
