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.

minutemat (9959) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - FEB 25, 2020
UPDATED: FEB 25, 2020 500ml bottle @ monthly tasting, Chez Sophie FEB 20 during the 2020 flooding of Shrewsbury. Many thanks to Jeremy for this! Big chewy piney resin hit going on here, big robust bitterness.. DIPA as it used to be back in the olden days, and brings back fond memories of getting wowed by Mikkeller 1000IBU, Brewdog Hardcore IPA and the likes.. Brilliant stuff.

Excellent brew. But, seriously, you have to mix it up to appreciate what you have. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Beese (9695) - Tooting, London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 21, 2020
UPDATED: FEB 21, 2020 Keg at O’Briens, San Diego, CA on 23/04/2008. It’s a classic, for sure. I possibly didn’t know this at the time. Huge bitter and piney hop aroma with resinous flavour and some fruit peal. Just enough sweetness to offset.

Hubson (968) - - FEB 11, 2020
UPDATED: MAR 23, 2020 Klasyk na niedziele i pierwsze piwo z jednego z najlepszych paneli na jakim byłem w @maverickgdansk , od którego już oczywiście trochę czasu minęło Aromat intensywny, grejpfrut, pomarańcze, trochę sosnowo, w tle bardziej zioła. W smaku dość wyraźnie słodowe, potem wchodzą cytrusy. W posmaku lekko ziołowe, goryczka średnia, alkohol niewyczuwalny. Jest to dobre piwo, na pewno klasyk, ale jest Imo dość przecenione. Na pewno nie powoduje efektu WOW jaki sugeruje jego ocena czy legenda.

UPDATED: FEB 7, 2020 Thanks to Max for the bottle! Very light haze, good head. Pineapple fruity pine nose. Serious bitterness from start to finish, but it's so smooth compared to any other beer with that level of IBUs. Great piney flavor. This is one fresh bottle, 1 month in the bottle! Wow.

skaughty (653) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JAN 24, 2020
Draft at SFO 23oz. Smells of fresh citrus, with some wet cheesecloth - muted and mild. Appearance is straight gold with moderate head, but excellent carbonation and lacing. Full Flavor of pale malt and moderately herbs, Rich and consistent . Palate is not acidic or leeching, but holds the weight of the malt and liveliness of the hops. World Class mouthfeel and better than the sum of its parts. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

flying_pig (2211) - SCOTLAND - JAN 7, 2020
UPDATED: JAN 7, 2020 51cl bottle from California as a gift: Clear amber with some bubbles rising but it's lighter than expected. The head is fluffy & white, holding very well with good lacing too. The smell was a fresh & hoppy one with floral notes & a pleasant bitterness, some grapefruit at the end too but nothing overly pronounced. Citrus & grapefruit kick off the taste with a freshness, faint pine & subtle tropical fruits, most notably pineapple; the bitterness is slightly stronger here too. The body is strongly carbonated & medium with a clean feel & the alcohol content is hidden well too. Very nice & easy to drink; not the best DIPA I've had but it is certainly up there.

r464 (2713) - Earth, California, USA - DEC 27, 2019
UPDATED: MAR 16, 2020 Light golden color with a white head. Crisp and mildly dry. A little citrus zest and some floral hops that comes to a great finish. Full, but not heavy.
