This is a great beer. I've had the real thing and this is dead on. I brewed all grain and pitched a single vial of WLP001. I skipped the secondary and went from primary to keg in about two weeks. This was my first attempt to keg and I force carbed it and drank it in three days. It needs clearing up a little, but the taste was great from the first glass. Fireworks at the Hollywood Bowl was great with a growler of my very own Pliney!

Wow! Excellent kit!! I will definitely be brewing this again. I've never had the pleasure of trying the real Pliny but if it's anything like this clone it's definitely all it's cracked up to be!!!

Brewed this a couple months ago. Did not carbonate! Tastes great, just no bubbles. Only brew out of 14 I have made since March that had this problem. Tired yeast, I guess.

Brewed a 5 gallon all grain kit with no deviations from the recipe and I would have to say that it is one of the best beers I have brewed this year. I would recommend letting it condition in the bottle for at least a month as the more this conditions, the better it is. It had a very pronounced bitterness after opening the first bottle at 3 weeks, but over time it has mellowed and deepened in flavor and mouthfeel. Even though it is expensive I'd say give it a try as there is a reason for all of the hype...all of the 14 plus ounces of hops really add up to one incredible hop bomb of a beer!

I have never been able to try the real Pliny, but I do know that this recipe is great. The hop aroma, well balanced malt, gorgeous color make this definitely worth doing. Austin comes through again with amazing recipes. I will definitely do this all grain again.

This was both my first "real" homebrew and my first from AHS. Great beer! So excited I get to have Pliny again (and again) even here in Texas. Kudos to AHS for their directions that came with it as well - even a noob like me couldn't screw it up!

2 weeks fermenting at about 67 and one week dry hop, kegged and one week later kaaaaa......powww... It is a hop bomb for sure. It is a double IPA for sure. Very smooth like an ipa should be and very dank and piney and citrusy. I've had Pliny 2x and it was remarkable. I'm not sure this is exactly like it, but of all of the beers that I've purchased or brewed, this beer reminds me the most of sweet sweet pliny. Now on to brew it again and I am also going to try the Heady Topper recipe. Nice Job AHS.

I bought the Pliny the Elder kit when AHS had a 2 for 1 sale. The beer came out great. Hoppy and smooth. Delicious. I have never been able to get a hold of the original Pliny the Elder, so I am not sure how it compares to it, but I am very happy with this beer. It did get much better after waiting the 6 weeks.

For this, this wasn't a spot on Pliny clone. It was however, an awesome IPA. This was a beer I shared with my beer snob friends to show how good homebrew can be. Will definitely brew again.
