Its become trendy now to start hating on Pliny (well, not hating perhaps, but talking about how its so overrated).

This has been one of my favorite beers for years, never got around to giving it a real rating, before, but I absolutely love this beer. It is the perfect double IPA. Very strong hops, explosion of crisp flavor in the mouth, yet it never gets too heavy by the end of the glass. Truly fantastic beer and the epitome of the style in my mind. The look, smell, taste, crisp feel; Its all fantastic.

Pliny the Elder looks, smells, and tastes like beer...a really good beer for anyone. It's an IPA, but it doesn't kill it for people who says IPAs are too hoppy.
