Hard for me to differentiate between the elder. At the end of the day, a fabulous aMd smooth drinker.

T: pineapple and grapefruit to the middle; dank pine through the moderately bitter finish;

M: medium bodied; moderate carbonation; moderately dry finish;

O: really nice; the aroma had better balance than the flavor;

This tastes like a less punchy Pliny the Elder. It tastes and smells a little less bold to me. I expect its less hops and seems a little thinner, but honestly it could be that it wasn't absolutely fresh and had sat for a bit. Still a fantastic west coast IPA, but more in the stream than on the top of the bank as the definition of the style. I'm grateful this is more accessible though!

Where was Pliny on my voting machine? Freshly canned from draft by Pinocchio’s for their anniversary pack. Wonderful DDH WC IPA. Piney, clean and worth my time in line.
