We know you are going to question us on this one - why feature the bronze medal winner? It's simple, really - Pliny the Elder, in our opinion, has consistently defined the Imperial IPA style. And how can deny the awesome name?


The brewery was the first to use Simcoe Hops, and brewmaster Vinnie Cilurzo has pioneered many other innovations over the years in this very consistent brew. Pliny the Elder also took the Bronze in 2004 and the Gold in 2005 and 2006.
