Pliny the Younger is a Triple IPA, simply meaning that it is higher in alcohol and has tons of hops. The alcohol should finish at about 10.25%, although it is remarkably dry for the amount of malt used in the recipe. It is loaded with hop flavors, bitterness, and aromatics. We brewed Younger for the first time in 2005 as a winter seasonal, building upon the Pliny the Elder recipe while pushing the envelope with malt, hops, and alcohol just to see how far we could go! This year’s hops are hand selected by from the 2019 crop and include Amarillo, Chinook, Citra, Mosaic, Simcoe and more! It is always brewed only once a year and released the first Friday in February, rain or shine.
