I finally tried my first Pliny the Elder this evening that I got in trade and was happy to try my first. As soon as I poured it into my glass you could smell the hoppyness and had a nice 2-3 finger head. It had a extremely pleasant citrousy and piny aroma. At the first sip there were strong citrus and grapefruit taste with the right amount of hops.
It is a very decent beer, but not sure if it lived up to all the hype. I went into this one thinking I was going to taste the amazing beer ever and that just was not the case. It is definitely toward the top for it's style but not the best.
