    This is it, one of the highest regarded Double IPA's of all time, Pliny the Elder. I have brewed this Pliny the Elder recipe many times and it is just like the real thing if you do it right! It is a perfect West Coast Double IPA in my opinion. It is over flowing with hop flavor and balanced perfectly.
