PLINY THE ELDER

PLINY THE ELDER by RUSSIAN RIVER BREWING CO.

Pliny-the-elderPop the top of Pliny The Elder by Russian River Brewing Company and it’s a one way ticket to ecstasy. The aroma is akin to a forest of clean, fresh pine cones with a tongue tingling taste of crisp and bright grapefruit citrus. Impeccably executed. Magnificently balanced. It’s buttery smooth with a tangy bite. Hops frolic front and center on the taste buds. However, there is a complexity, depth and texture featuring more flavor variants then science can classify – possibly extraterrestrial in origin, maybe a crazed mutant yeast strain metastasizing into a happy tumor. Serve a peck below freezing (you gotta see the sweat outside the bottle, man) and let the temperature rise in the glass over time for new flavors to emerge. If there’s a perfect vacation in a bottle, this is it. I could lustily devour the drops until my heart stopped beating and I died. Period. The End.

Raise your arms, it’s a field goal.

6/6 bottle caps!!!
