I had several ounces of Pliny the Younger poured by Vinnie himself at the Extreme Beerfest.
The beer pours a golden honey color with a small, creamy white head on top. The aroma is all flowery and grapefruit citrus hops.
Each sip of this full bodied beer is chewy with a mild fizz on the palate. The flavor is mostly citrus and pine hop. Seems like cascade or centennial hops to me. Throughout is a nice sweet, caramel malty flavor that is a good balance to all the hops. It finishes with some alcohol and once gone the citrus hop flavor lingers on the palate.
For 11% abv this is a well balanced beer. Mostly hoppy, but the sweet malt holds its own. Definitely a sipping beer that will warm your insides after one pint.
Serving type: on-tap
