COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

scotty (1320) - SCOTLAND - SEP 26, 2019
UPDATED: SEP 26, 2019 Bottled, a present from Alice on her return from San Francisco, I think it was purchased in Whole Foods. A lovely beer, worthy of its rave reviews! Is it the best beer in the world? I'm not in a position to say, there are so many I've not tried! It is, however, a cracking beer, not only does it look good, clean gold with a good white head, but it tastes great as well. It's surprisingly well balanced for a beer at 8%, well hopped, but with a good malt presence as well. Unfortunately Alice only brought one bottle back, so I'll either have to wait till she goes back to SF, or I'll just have to go myself!

s3quin (345) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - SEP 24, 2019
UPDATED: SEP 24, 2019 Aroma: Tropical fruits, white fruits, mango, lychee, peach. Also some floral and malty notes. Appearance: Clear pale. good white head. Taste: Very bitter, rather sweet. Palate: Average carbonation, medium body. Overall: Very good east coast IPA, bitter and fruity. Of course, it feels old school in comparison with modern NEIPAs, but it is executed very well.

UPDATED: SEP 24, 2019 Appearance: Pours clear light orange with a lasting creamy white head, with good lacing. 外观:浅橘黄色,清澈。持久而细腻的白色泡沫,漂亮的挂杯。 5/5 Aroma: Pine neddles, grass, orange, citric, grapefruit, melon and blossom, with slight honey and earth. 气味:松针、青草、柑橘、柠檬、西柚、蜜瓜和花丛,还带有轻微的蜂蜜和泥土香。 8/10 Qiute sweet malty caramelish with citrusy fruits at the beginning, followed by increasing piney hops and earthy herbral notes, finally came to a lingering dry bitter perfumy hoppy finish with subtle acidity. 味道:入口是相当甜的麦芽和焦糖伴随着柑橘类水果,随后逐渐显现出酒花的松脂味和泥土、 Medium to full bodied, soft carbonated. Smooth and oily. 口感:酒体较重,杀口感柔和。顺滑,有油润感。 5/5 Overall With magnificent balance and extremely long finish, it would outperform many triple hazy 'stuff' on palate, while being eclipsed by them on nose. 惊人的平衡性和超长尾韵,让它入口后胜过很多三倍浑浊奶昔,虽然单论香气的话不免会在这些妖艳

Dr.Circlr (5) - - SEP 12, 2019 does not count
UPDATED: SEP 12, 2019 병입일이 18.08.21이라 약간은 피니쉬가 약한 감이 있으나 그럼에도 터지는 홉향. 역시 전설의 맥주다... 8도 IIPA임에도 전혀 알콜부즈가 튀지않고 입안에서 화사함

nurinamu (1) - - SEP 12, 2019 does not count
UPDATED: SEP 12, 2019 잔에 따르는 순간 홉향이 엄청 상쾌하게 느껴진다. 첫모금에서 마지막 까지 그 향이 이어지고 끝의 쓴맛이 부드럽게 느껴짐. 훌륭한 IPA. 가격이 비싼게 흠이지만 아깝지않다

RoJo28 (374) - - SEP 5, 2019
UPDATED: SEP 5, 2019 Starts so good, but with such a bitter end, like when things are going well with a girl you met at a bar, then she lets you know she has an hourly rate

grundsow (192) - Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 31, 2019
UPDATED: AUG 31, 2019 Pours clear golden with a frothy head. Wonderful floral & pine hop aroma. Flavor is floral & citrus, complimented by a mild malt balance. Good overall except the huge alcohol content requires a mindfully light foot on the throttle.

4.2
MarkoNm (4072) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - AUG 12, 2019
UPDATED: AUG 12, 2019 Tap, Devil's Slide Taprrom, Pacifica. Hazy golden, thin white head. Tropical fruits, piceapple and mango. Moderate bitterness, a bit dry, later with a sweeter fruity touch. Hoppy aftertaste, a bit herbal. Lighter body. Proper and very fine.
