Stopped by the Russian River Brewery a couple of times during my most recent sojourn back home to Northern California.
The first time I was there they had just run out of Pliny on tap. I asked the tender and he said it doesn't help that most of the staff really enjoy it too, which doesn't leave as much for customers.
The seconf time I went they had it.
Pours a golden yellow with an orange tinge.
Has a nice little head that sticks around for a while.
Floral Hoppy aroma with a hint of citrus.
The taste is all about hops a slightly bitter and dry fisnish. Pretty drinkable but not a session brew.
I had with with one of the brewery's specialty pizzas with peperoni, sausage and caramelized unions. Paired pretty well, the hoppiness cut through the strong taste of the pizza well.
Also wanted to mention, I had a nice chat with vinnie when I was there a well. He does some good stuff there and is looking to expand before too much longer.
Serving type: on-tap

T - Great. High on bitterness but not the bad kind.
M - The best part. Extremely light and smooth going down.
O - Worth the hype.
