Pliny the elder Pours a vibrant gold. Prickly fruity citrus hop nose. Wonderfully soft med-full body. Great hoppy biscuity taste with citrusy hops. It lives up to the hype.

Bottle. Light copper pour with a clean white head. Citrus, biscuit, seaweed, pine. Full body. Don’t feel the alcohol. Few beer with umami finish along with slight bitterness. Really good

6th Feb 2015 and I finally get my hands on a bottle of this beer. 3rd Belgian Beer Board website bottle exchange in De Bierboom, Brugge. The bar owner Rudy had been given two bottles of this and kept one for the exchange evening. He knew I wanted to try it, so early on in the evening he ’palmed me’ the bottle for drinking later. At midnight with only about six people left I broached the bottle and we all had a decent sized sample.
Poured a golden amber with a weak white head. Aroma was citrusy hops and semi-sweet malts: mild tropical fruitiness hints also. The taste was more malty than the nose intimated with a biscuit like flavour, tempered with a fruity backbone. Expected a hoppier, bitter tasting brew to be honest, liked what I had though and the hops were always in the background waiting to pounce, even though they didn’t.

This is my style of brew. This one was about a month and a half old. Still very sweet and tasty. Great looking brew as it pours a golden yellow with a wonderful white head. Good lacing. Enjoy the gem and get one fresh. The fresher the hops the better.

UPDATED: FEB 22, 2015 Pours a golden color with a sticky white head. Aroma is citrus hops, malts, tropical fruits. Flavor is tropical fruit, lots of biscuit and honey malts. An explosion of tropical fruits. Amazing that this beer is pretty much as good as they say. Not that bitter. Less hoppy version of Younger. Needless to say it’s Amazing. RR can do hoppy beers amazingly well. It’s their forte.

Beautiful color, great beginning notes, superbly balanced! Not the best, but definitely a good beer worth a try! I came across it by accident about a week ago at this place while talking about it to a friend. facebook.com/hoppysfoodmart apparently they just started selling it or something.

It is a complete beer, although I wasn't particularly impressed. I've certainly had better. Great beer, but I wouldn't put it in my top 50
