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 uncles 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.

From the source. Lovely orange Reddish hue, nice foamy white head. Aroma of caramel, pine, alcohol. A benchmark for the style but notes of spearmint.

Bottle dated 5/11/16 straight from the brewery. Pours a very clear gold color. Amazing that there are a ton of hops in this and its this clear. The hops are quite the star here but has a very malty backbone that just shines. Love it!!

Sdaniel90 (1062) - Mexico City, MEXICO - JUN 9, 2016
Bottle, 500ml. Consumed fresh (7 weeks after bottling). Clear golden with a frothy offwhite head. Aromas of fruity and floral hops, caramel, resin. Full bodied with moderate carbonation. Medium sweet, heavy bitterness. Deep roasted and hoppy character into a stinging bitter finish. Legendary beer.

Bottle, 500ml. A clear golden beer with a medium size white head. Aroma is of citrics, especially grapefruit and lemon, hops and floral hints. Taste is bitter with a perfectly balanced hoppy finish. Medium bodied, smooth and astrigent with a floral and malt character. An extraordinary Imperial IPA.

adasko (2042) - Poznan, POLAND - JUN 5, 2016
Fruity, hoppy aroma, fresh squeezed grapefruits, orange peal. Cristal clear, super lacing. Taste super dry, fresh, juicy, hoppy. Pleasant crisp bitterness in the back. No sweetness at all. Super nice long aftertaste. No wonder this beer is legendary, years ago it was probably mind blowing. Now its just awesome.

Bottle, thanks to Misterburd! Clear golden yellow with large off-white foamy head, floral hops aroma, medium carbonation, delicious sweetish balanced hops taste, smooth body, long flavorful hoppy finish. This is as good as it gets for a DIPA!

A very solid DIPA. This beer is really much lighter in color than I expected, and is a crystal clear golden with good head and nice hoppy aromas. The beer is very drinkable despite being 8% alcohol. Its not overly sweet like some doubles can be, but is a great example of DIPA.

Enormous thanks Alberto for sharing this! Finally! Golden body with a small white head. Light hop-driven aroma, pine, vaguely citric. Herbal, piney but fruity too taste, strawberries, tropical fruit, somewhat dry and sweetish. A solid, slightly too excessive malty backbone.... oof. its very good but I have to say that I expected far more.
