Really nice IPA, had this amazingly fresh. Not sure about it being the best thing ever, but definitely worth finding and trying.

A: Nice golden orange color. Clear with a full head and nice lacing.

S: Wonderful smell. A citrus hop explosion in my glass.

T: Citrus up front, followed by pine. Perfect balance with just the right amount of bitterness.

M: Medium mouth feel and medium carbonation. Super refreshing.

O: This was my first time having Pliny the Elder and it did not disappoint. This is a tasty and refreshing brew that I look forward to having again and again.
