Pliny the Younger, the man, was Pliny the Elder’s nephew and adopted son. They lived nearly 2,000 years ago! Pliny the Elder is our Double IPA, so we felt it was fitting to name our Triple IPA after his son. It is almost a true Triple IPA with triple the amount of hops as a regular I.P.A. That said, it is extremely difficult, time and space consuming, and very expensive to make. And that is why we don’t make it more often! This beer is very full-bodied with tons of hop character in the nose and throughout. It is also deceptively well-balanced and smooth.

Luckily the wait wasn't to bad (about 30 mins) from there you walk in, hand them your money, and collect your long stemmed half pour. Crystal clear Golden orange color was very nice.. Head had faded by the time we collected ours. Aroma was very sweet, piney, and full of juicy citrus. Taste is amazingly balanced.. citrus, pine, slightly bready, sweet, and smooth. Really great IPA but i wouldn't say its the best i've had by any means.

Growler shared by alexsdad06. Poured clear bright copper color with a large frothy off-white head that was lasted with excellent lacing. Heavy complex sour citrus hop and alcohol aroma. Medium to full body with dry slick texture and soft carbonation. Heavy smooth bitter citrus flavor with a heavy bitter finish of long duration with a small alcohol burn as it warms. This is a standout beer. Thanks Brad.
