A friend sent me a recent link about a place in Philly that will host a Pliny the Younger tasting. It made me wonder. Has anyone compared the younger to any of the say, Alpine beers? I'd have to drive 6.5 hours to Philly to "maybe" taste a Younger but I am lucky enough to get (and have) Alpine Duet, Nelson, Pure Hoppiness & Exponential Hoppiness. My feeling is driving 6.5 hours to taste the younger is not worth what i already have in my fridge! Not to mention the elder, blind pig, zombie dust and Heady i have in there! Has anyone done a blind tasting? I have heard the exponential is right up there if not as good as Younger. Is the fact Younger is not bottled make people belive it's "has" to be better? If it was bottled would it be as big a deal? Thoughts?
