This is our take on the world famous Pliny the Elder by Russian River, its a big hoppy West Coast style DIPA that comes in around 9% abv and is not the easiest beer to get right as it can oxygenate easily, so not for a first time brewer. But when its done well this beer will keep you wishing you had brewed a bigger batch!

Special attention should be taken on water treatment and avoiding oxygen due to the volume of hops. This beer works well when fermented under pressure.
