Russian River Pliny the Elder

WINDSOR, CALIFORNIA - A bit of history first: Vinnie Cilurzo brewed America's first Double IPA, named "Inaugural Ale", back in 1994 at Blind Pig Brewing Co, Temecula, CA. Then Vinnie was hired as the original and only head brewer at Korbel Chanpagnes Cellars' foray into brewing - Russian River Brewing Co. Vinnie and his wife, Natalie bought the brewery a few years later and opened their Santa Rosa location. Vinnie is the originator of this style and he still brews the best version, Pliny the Elder. Brewed with copious amounts of Amarillo, Centennial, CTZ, and Simcoe hops. Very hoppy, but not a hop bomb - the balance of the malt and hops is extraordinary. Super drinkable, but be careful it's 8%abv.
