Russian River Pliny The Elder

Russian River Brewing Co

Epic brew. I've heard this hyped for a long time and was assuming it would be a letdown like some other over hyped beers (I'm looking at you SA Chocolate Stout), but it came through in the clutch like Robert Horry. The hops lend an incredible fruit character without an overpowering bitterness. This has taken over as my favorite IPA (sorry Ruination). Just a quality beer, you're doing yourself a disservice if you don't give this a try. I'm sure Pliny himself would have said the same.
