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.

UPDATED: JAN 4, 2008 I like this one alot, because I love hoppy bears. I tried the younger as well as the elder at O’briens in San Diego. I preferred the younger. The aroma was full of citrus an dhops. Watch out for this one, the alcohol will sneak up on you.

UPDATED: OCT 12, 2010 Tap at the Drafting Room. Slightly hazy amber/orange. Aroma is grapefruit, tropical fruit, pine and other oily hops. a bit of caramel/sugar sweetness. Nicely bitter ending. No alcohol taste. Quite simply amazing.

wow. this is a hop slap in the face. if you thought Hopslam was "tropical" try this bastard. Tastes like drinking hop syrup. really sweet watermellon, mango goodness. soooo bitter. inexplicable sweetness i can’t tell if is from hoppiness or malts but it works well, and the alcohol is stealth. if you curl your tongue afterwards you get more puckering bitterness. Helluva nice IIPA. I’d never pay more than $6 for a beer but $7 for 13oz of this stuff is worth it.

1/2 pint at RR - Aroma of fresh floral hops, citrus, pine and caramel malt. Pours hazy gold with a small head and good lacing. Flavor matches aroma and despite my fried tastebuds, I still loved this brew. Alcohol was a bit more apparent in this one. Palate is sticky and tart. Very nice brew but not for the weak.

on-tap at Pizza Port Carlesblad. The more aggressive version of the elder in a side-by-side tasting. Hop attack of the palate, and a lot of malt. The elder is much smoother, and now my favorite. White head. You don’t detect the alcohol, bit it’s there.

UPDATED: AUG 28, 2008 Hops forward and throughout. Sweet but surprisingly light mouthfeel. Malt balances heavy hops and hides alcohol. Watch out! 10 oz. pour perfect for closing out a day.

On tap poured a hazed golden/orange color with a small fading head. The aroma was over the top hoppiness, with pine, citrus, grapefruit you name it. And like the other IPA’s from RR this had that sweet sugar aroma and dry finish. Taste was very easy to drink with a smooth hop bitterness and nice sweet malt balance. The Elder is my fav. IIPA so it’s not a shock to taste another great one from RR.

Had this bear on tap at Stone brewery. Lots of hops full flavored beer. Nice finish with a smooth aftertaste. I would highly recommend it. Cannot taste the alcohol which is suprising for such a high ABV. Cheers!
