Poured from a growler imported by brewandbbq from the sacred hop grounds of Russian River . . .
This is truly a hophead's delight. The light color seems to suggest a pils or a tripel, but it is truly a Triple IPA. The nose exudes pungent grapefruit, juicyfruit gum, pine sap, cotton candy, and citrus galore. The taste matches the smell. Each sip revealed a new layer of hoppy goodness, and the full-on hop assault pummelled my palate into submission. Despite the intense hoppiness, Pliny struck a balance between bitterness and malty sweetness. It lived up to the hype. I could drink pint after pint until I fall off my stool onto the floor. Man, does it go down easy for an 11% ABV ale.
Thank you, Vinnie, may I have another . . .
Serving type: growler
