Russian River Pliny The Elder
Russian River Pliny The Elder is an American Double/Imperial IPA, and is considered by many the best DIPA in the world. This beer is almost overflowing with hop favors of grapefruit, orange, and resinous pine (with a slight hint of onion), finishing a bit on the earthy side. As hoppy as this is it is still so well balanced, it is never too intense or bitter. I’m not sure this beer could ever live up to it’s hype but it comes pretty damn close. I look forward for my chance to drink it again, but I don’t see myself trading for it again either.
