Pliny the Elder was a Roman naturalist, scholar, historian, traveler, officer, and writer. Although not considered his most important work, Pliny and his contemporaries created the botanical name for hops, "lupus Salictarius", meaning wolf among scrubs." Hops at that time grew wild among willows, much like a wolf in the forest. Later the current botanical name, humulus Lupulus, was adopted. Pliny died in 79 AD while observing the eruption of Mount Vesuvius. He was immortalized by his nephew, Pliny the Younger, who continued his uncle’s legacy by documenting much of what he observed during the eruption of Mount Vesuvius. Pliny the Elder, the beer, is brewed with 40% more malt and over twice the amount of hops as compared to our already hoppy IPA.

Different size bottle 500 ml??? Cracked and smelled huge hops. Pine citrus and mango. Flavor of fresh squished hop cones in your hands. One of best hop head beers I know of. A must try.

Bouteille de 500 ml offerte par mon ami Martin. Un gros merci. Arôme: Une bombe de pin. Apparence: La couleur est orangée-dorée légèrement voilée avec une très faible densité de bulle. Présence d’un mince col mousseux et d’une fine dentelle sur le verre. Saveur: Fort goût de pin avec une pointe de pamplemousse. Longue durée de l’arrière goût. Palette: Le corps est moyen avec une texture légèrement onctueuse. Présence de pin en arrière goût. (Rating #6428)

dnicolaescu (1440) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - JUL 28, 2015
UPDATED: NOV 17, 2015 Slightly hazy golden. Aroma is tropical fruit, pine and dank notes, smooth malts. Taste: hoppy, subdued smooth malts, silky body, super drinkable at 8%. Strong and smooth bitter finish. In the end, nothing stands out, except the perfect smoothness and balance. Excellent.

Wow! The father of all DIPA’s does not disappoint. SOme biscuit notes on the palate otherwise a light malt backbone to this hopmonster. Hop bitterness is at the front of the palate and aroma is all pungent, resin hop. This is the gold standard for DIPAs

Crisp, refreshing with a beautiful golden color. Very well balanced hops and would pair well with any food.

First had this in Cali, very hard to get in shops but worth the hunt. Nice clean finish.
