Pliny the Elder

Russian River Brewing (Santa Rosa, (CA)
"Brewed with Amarillo, Centennial, CTZ, and Simcoe hops. It is well-balanced with malt, hops, and alcohol, slightly bitter with a fresh hop aroma of floral, citrus, and pine. Best enjoyed FRESH!"

Regarded by many as the best Imperial IPA. The local bottle shop just got them in so I made a special trip just to grab a bottle (limit one per).
Quite possibly the best IPA I've ever had!
Deliciously complex. Just a bit of bitterness and a hint of citrus sweetness.

ABV 8%
