FWIW, I posted to find out how beers I've had compare with Pliny - kind off topic but I'm curious because I can't get Pliny up here.

Double Jack is great.. but nothing like PtE. In my opinion.

I agree with Scott. I've had both beers several times and I actually prefer Firestone Double Jack. I had them side by side at a bar in LA (both fresh examples which is VERY important) and both me and my buddy chose DJ. I probably could have gone the other way as well. They are fairly close. Pliny has hype and history, but it's only a matter of time...

Matt Brynildson really knows what he's doing and there is a reason why Firestone does so well. Of course, he has nothing on Vinnie's sours.

I had my Growler filled with double dry hopped stone ipa, I would take that over a pliney any day. Heritic brewing has the evil cousin, which I thought was very comparable to pliney. Would love to try anything from bells but haven't found any here in SoCal

I think Evil Cousin is waaaay danker than Pliny. It has different hops as well. It tastes like Heretic uses Summit as well which I don't think Pliny uses (probably mostly American citrus hops)

Heretic does use Summit, which is a very polarizing hop.

Fresh Ithaca Flower Power is really damn good. You can get that in the Philly area. They had it at Capones the day they released some Pliny. I enjoyed the Flower Power much more than the Pliny. The keg was really fresh!

Stone Ruination does not compare to PtE. Both are excellent, but Ruination is more over the top bitterness, while PtE is very well balanced, clean and crisp.
