Pliny the Younger was Pliny the Elder’s nephew, in the case of this beer, the "Younger" is a triple IPA. Pliny the Younger is hopped three times more than our standard IPA, and is dry hopped four different times.

On tap at the Cheeky Monk in Denver. No need to try and describe this legend. I believe that it lives up to the hype. So very glad I got to try it.

On draught at Apex. Crystal clear golden color. Aroma is grapefruit, passionfruit, herb, and a sweet note. Taste is first sticky tropical candy with some tart grapefruit, segues into intense tropical and pine hop bitterness, and finishes with a hoppy smoothness.

UPDATED: FEB 22, 2015 On tap at the brewery. Pale golden color, thin white head. Aroma is lots of hops and citrus, very tropical fruit Aroma, pineapple, mango, orange peach, biscuit malt. Flavor is hop forward, but with a brilliantly balanced honey malt backbone. Long bitter finish. Full bodied. What else can you say? It’s Pliny the Younger. One of the best IPAs out there.

On tap at The Mayor in Fort Collins on 2/16. Arrived at the table a deep orange with a small white head. Wonderful citrus and pine hop aromas. Med to full body with layers of citrus hop flavors (Amarillo / Simcoe) and some caramel malt sweetness. Nice bitter finish. Very well crafted beer that is well balanced, while accentuating the hop flavor and aromas. The alcohol is well hidden and PtY is extremely drinkable. Had a PtE side by side and the Elder has never tasted so light.

10oz pour at Obrien’s San Diego. 10min wait (score). Beautiful tangerine orange with only the slightest remnants of a thin white head. Slight oily sheen on top. Carbonation is low. Taste is very bright and fresh, piney resin coats the palate followed by moderately aggressive bitterness and then prominent floral notes and a bit of passion fruit. Was expecting more citrus and pineapple, but it didn’t really come though. Very dry, but hides the ABV extraordinarily well. Malt is far in the background, just my kind of triple IPA, dry, resinous, and very fresh. Glad I got my hands on this one.

badhack (518) - San Francisco, California, USA - FEB 16, 2015
A very pleasant IPA to drink. Aroma of fresh hops, citrus and stone fruit. Some pine. Flavor is similar. The malt is a bit recessed but not weak. I thought the fruity flavors really come forth and there is a LONG bitter finish. That 10.2% is completely masked. Not very sticky or oily for a triple IPA. This is a bit hyped but it is also very good and up there with the best.

theothermatt (286) - Lakewood, Colorado, USA - FEB 15, 2015
On tap at Falling Rock. Great nose. Big aroma of citrus, pine, and earth. Very smooth, bitter and dry though the finish. Great pine taste, grass, spruce, and leather. It’s good, but not worth a three hour wait when there are so many others up to it’s standard.

krumbum (964) - truckee, California, USA - FEB 12, 2015
Smooth piny aromas. Slightly hazy golden with white frothy head. So smooth with those signature hop flavors you expect from point but a even smoother delivery in a bigger beer. It lives up to the hype.

(En fût au Hamilton’s Tavern): Un liquide ambré dense et brumeux qui respire des sucres résineux, on dirait que les Sierra au complet ont servi d’houblonnage à cru. C’est plein de fruits tropicaux également et malgré tout c’est assez bien équilibré, dans le sommet du spectre évidemment. Vraiment surpris par celle-là, je croyais que l’anticipation allait l’étouffer.
