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.

Bacchus66 (1914) - South Carolina, USA - OCT 29, 2019
UPDATED: OCT 29, 2019 510ml bottle at home, via CA. Clear gold, medium white with good retention and lacing. Lemon and grapefruit citrus, pine, mild caramel sweetness. Medium carb and body. Piney finish. Perfectly balanced with plenty of hops but not over the top. Quintessential west coast, classic.

bigericsports (154) - Berkeley, California, USA - OCT 29, 2019
UPDATED: OCT 29, 2019 Poured into pint glass, clear golden with a white head, long lasting lacing. Quite intense hoppy aroma with pine, herbs, citrus and fruits. Medium sweet flavors and a strong, but balanced bitterness. Really tasty stuff! Will let my friends know!

CaskTapper45 (9) - - OCT 28, 2019 does not count
UPDATED: NOV 2, 2019 Cloudy, golden. Big head. Fruity aroma, but very bitter taste, too bitter on the tongue in the end.

NordicV (3451) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - OCT 23, 2019
UPDATED: OCT 23, 2019 Fat @ Russian River. Gyllenorange öl med ett stort gräddigt vitt skum. Mycket fyllig doft och smak med frukt, karamell, malt, tallbarr och gräs. En mycket bra kropp som balanserar all humle gör ölen mycket drickbar.

jesperhammer (5795) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 17, 2019
UPDATED: OCT 17, 2019 16-OCT-2019, draft @Knotty Barrel Brewing. Clear golden with a lasting, lacing, white head. Aroma is mostly citrus hops. Taste is grape fruit, pine, toasted malt. Average body, huge bitterness, not as sweet as many IIPA’s. Really nice IIPA, but there are many just as good out there today. Glad to find it.

scotty (1326) - 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 (358) - 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.

vcsa (144) - - SEP 23, 2019
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
