UPDATED: MAR 13, 2021 Clear golden with a thick fluffy white head, excellent retention and lacing with visible carbonation. Citrus rind, lemon, and grapefruit with nice resinous pine. Taste is a balance of citrus and pine. Medium body with a hoppy dry finish PintGuide68 (1) - - DEC 21, 2020 does not count
UPDATED: DEC 21, 2020 This is a totally solid IPA. Nice balance, without any of that, 'what is THAT strange flavor?' at any point. Pliny the Elder brought me to Russian River, but I enjoy this one just as much or more in a blind tasting. Chadhami (615) - - DEC 6, 2020
UPDATED: DEC 6, 2020 So this is my favorite Russian River beer (I have not yet tried a Pliney the younger) Strong but tasty, went down easy but packed a punch. Great name and label. One great beer. drpimento (5670) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 3, 2020
UPDATED: OCT 3, 2020 Wow is this good beer! Everything is so dialed in and flawless I just can't believe it. I wish I'd bought a lot more. super fresh grapefruit hops with exact perfect amount of malt and carbonation to balance huge fluffy frothy off-white head that lasts a long time just the right amount of bitterness and an outstanding finish. Man these guys can brew beer. beeriq (19) - danville, USA - AUG 21, 2020
UPDATED: AUG 21, 2020 Excellent step down from the Pliny from Russian River ...lower gravity but still great ...allows for more!

UPDATED: JUL 18, 2020 Remarkable. Absolutely hoppy, pine and floral on the nose. Beautifully light and luscious mouthfeel. Would buy this again for $8 a bottle. Grapefruit notes, pale yellow color, beautifully balanced, dry finish. Not sweet. Totally drinkable. A serious craft beer. tfontana (3171) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 28, 2020
UPDATED: FEB 28, 2020 Taster pour on tap at Boneyard Bistro. Appearance is lightly hazy, piss yellow with tons of sparkle, finger-width white foamy head with excellent retention and tons of soapy lacing. Aroma is nondescript fruit salad. Taste is sweet nondescript fruit salad with offsetting strong bitterness. Mouthfeel is light-to-medium bodied with smooth texture, soft carbonation and dry, crisp, mostly bitter finish. Overall, a really nice look but the aroma and taste are fairly weak and the dominant feature of the brew is bitterness. EdKing (3347) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 8, 2020
UPDATED: FEB 8, 2020 Bottle from Beverage Department in L. Clear amber beer with a medium white head. Nose have that sweet Pliny notes, lime, lemon and grapefruit peel, pine, lime cordial, lime peel. Taste is hop bitter, lime peel, grapefruit rind, pine, tangy citrus fruit... Banksiz (236) - Sacramento, California, USA - FEB 2, 2020
UPDATED: FEB 2, 2020 Lemony-piney nose with a touch of stone fruit. Medium light body. Nice hop flavor with a moderate bitterness. Pleasant bitter finish, no harshness. Very drinkable, but the ABV is a bit on the high side for a mid-to-light IPA. flying_pig (2462) - IRELAND - JAN 7, 2020
UPDATED: JAN 7, 2020 510ml bottle from California:
A bright, clear orange to amber with a 3cm white head that’s thick & foamy but has great retention. The nose is fresh, floral & clean, doesn’t overpower & is a mix of citrus, pine & grassy hops before some biscuit shows at the end. The taste is pine, citrus & the same biscuit backing with light grapefruit & a hop resin on top of a lively, well-carbonated beer that was crisp & very drinkable; outstanding stuff.
