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.

UPDATED: APR 16, 2018 From tap at RRBC Santa Rosa. Appears clear straw with modest head and poor retention. Aroma is huge even when cold. Plenty of pine and pineapple. Drinks nicely with perfectly moderated carbonation and tasty pine and tropical fruit. A low pleasant bitterness in the finish balances the sweetness of the tropical fruit beer. Worthy of the reputation, refined and special

UPDATED: APR 8, 2018 I live 52 miles from the brewery, yet this gem is so hard to find. Pours from bottle hazy gold. Thick milky head that clings to the glass as it slowly drops in size. Memories of a root beer float come to mind. Oat aroma at first then a punch of fresh evergreens....hops. Taste is of heaven. Alcohol lingers at the rim of my throat. The hops are relentless. My chest warms and my face smiles. Please try and buy this classic.

On draft at Monk's Cafe in Philly. Incredibly smooth for a DIPA. In the same folklore as Bells HopSlam and Heady Topper, I have "captured another white whale." Cheers!

Bottle thanks to Xebbe! Golden color, large white head. Crisp, fruity aromas with oranges, passion fruit, grapefruit, fresh pine needles and sweet, sugary hints. Fruity and medium bitter taste with grapefruit, pine, resin, malt and lemon peel. Nicley balanced. Great IIPA!

One of the OG DIPAs that paved the way for the beers of today. This beer is fantastic. Balance is the key with this beer. Super hopped up piney DIPA but enough malt to balance it out and make this super drinkable.
