American Double IPA | 8.00% ABV

Beer notes:

Here it is folks, the acclaimed Pliny the Elder. One of the hardest to get beers in the country. There is a lot of hype surrounding this beer. I can easily see why it gets so much talk, though I don’t quite think it’s the magic juice a lot of people make it out to be. Don’t get me wrong, it is one of the best IPA’s I’ve ever had, though there is just so much hype the escalates the beer to immense proportions. I’m just not sure it lives up to that. I have not had a chance to have Pliny the Younger yet, that beer is actually even harder to acquire than the Elder, though I will continue my quest.

Pliny the Elder pours a light amber color with a quick building white head which decorates the glass nicely with lacing. The nose is nothing but fresh hops which are the highlight of the flavor as well. Elder has a moderate body and a nice long finish as expected with an IPA of this caliber.

Pairing suggestions:

Fatty meats, super sweet teeth rotting deserts.

beer + food = Barleydine
