I've Had A Lupulin Threshold Shift. I Hope It's Only Seasonal.

It happened at Ben and Nick's the other day. It's one of our locals. And there it was. The ever limited, only released in February, I know they only got one keg, and there it was.

Ben and Nick's
Pliny the Younger.
Pliny the Younger
10.5%ABV, 1.094 O.G., GOBS of BUs
Pliny the Younger was Pliny the Elder's nephew, in the case of this beer, the "Younger" is a triple IPA. Pliny the Younger is hopped three times more than our standard IPA, and is dry hopped four different times.
Tropical fruits, citrus, hoppy as hell yet nicely balanced, a hint of pine, pefect.

I gotta go back, see if there's any left. Who's with me?

If it's gone, we'll go to the Dogfish Head 90 min., or Pliny the Elder.
