Russian River Brewing Company Pliny for President (2024)

What the brewers say

“A lower-ABV version of our regular PTE but with more hops.”

What our panel thought

“Hop aromas showcase tangerine, grapefruit, background pineapple. Round malt foundation with bright sweaty tropical hop flavors: ripe mango, white wine, herbal. Dank, diesel, sweaty on the finish.”

What our editors thought

“Vivid yuzu, lemon, touch of tangerine, underscored by a fresh white-flower aroma. Light bready body balances semisweet tropical-­fruit notes and a strong, fresh tropical-herbal bitterness that leaves a touch of tingle on the tongue.”
