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.

Feeling like I had overhyped this knowing the reputation and finally scoring a bottle. Nice lacing on the pour. Hop bitterness is forward in all aspects but is balanced. Good, but honestly prefer other DIPA's.

Tap at Mohawk Bend, LA, 21st November 17. Pours hazy, small head, aroma is clean, citrus. Taste is so smooth, citrus, pine, lovely bitterness that builds and lingers. Worthy of the reputation and so easy to drink, especially in the Californian sun.

UPDATED: NOV 8, 2017 Hands down top 2 on my list! Just a fantastic beer. Aroma is great and the taste from start to finish is just A-1! Don’t give up the opportunity to drink it if you can find one in your area.

4.2
Mariox (391) - Warsaw, POLAND - NOV 7, 2017
UPDATED: NOV 7, 2017 Piękny aromat żywiczno-cytrusowo-tropikalny, aczkolwiek nie tak intensywny. W smaku wytrawne z nutą słodkich owoców tropikalnych. Na finiszu pojawia się taka grejpfrutowa goryczka, ale nie zalegająca. Wysycenie średnie, alkohol świetnie ukryty. Sporo ciała jak na IIPA, treściwe, mega pijalne. Świetny klasyk.

4.1
ChrisOfstad (446) - Hamar, NORWAY - NOV 7, 2017
UPDATED: NOV 7, 2017 0,5 litre Bottle from La Vista Liquor. Golden with medium white head. Tropical aroma with dry, Fruity bitterness!

4.6
kazooka (58) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - OCT 19, 2017
Bottled on October 10, 2017. Piney, the aroma! Pungent and bright citrus hop scented. Faint sour dough bread. Yeast aroma similar to brie. Pours honey-colored with substantial lingering head and clear reduces to a white lace around the glass through the experience. Not overly bitter flavored with a hint of sweetness. Fizzy and refreshing carbonation softens through the glass. Long bitter and sticky finish. Medium-heavy bodied although seems deceptively light.

danielst (421) - AUSTRIA - OCT 8, 2017
On tap @ Monk's Cafe. Intense grapefruit and sweet mango aroma, a fairly sweet malty flavor, finishes with a medium bitterness. Very good IIPA.

dojken (678) - SWEDEN - OCT 6, 2017
UPDATED: OCT 8, 2017 Fat på Gabf. Klassisk dipa doft. Så väldigt balanserad o välgjord dipa. Här finns bra smaker o en god efterbeska men jag saknar något mer smaker för att den ska få riktigt höga betyg. Återdrack den på Fallande klippan o sänker den ett snäpp.
