Pliny the Elder
Russian River Brewing Company
Santa Rosa, CA
Excuse the Tree House glass it's in. Pliny the Elder is brewed with Amarillo, Centennial, CTZ, and Simcoe hops. The East Coast IPAs comment Derek made is one of the many reasons my friends call him a beer snob. Derek had a Yellow Rose prior to drinking this... it never stood a chance.
Derek's Taste -
This beer is actually the second beer of the night. The first was Yellow Rose, one of my favorite beers. This reminded me of a good Knee Deep beer, maybe Lupulin River, but not as tropical. It's very well balanced, but I'm spoiled by East Coast IPAs.
