Russian River Pliny the Elder

A - Poured out a somewhat cloudy, orange color with golden highlights. It had a small, thick, foamy head that left soapy trails of lace.


S - Tons of grapefruit aroma; really amazing! There were mild notes of pine and caramel.


T - It hits you with a tart ruby red grapefruit taste and sweet orange peel flavors. The burnt toast caramel flavors add balance to the strong fruit taste.


M - It was crisp and sharp with a dry finish. A medium bodied ale.


D - A very hyped beer, very good but not worth all the hype although I feel like I need one every time I see it.
