I agree, Pliny is not all that hoppy. Overall, my opinion of it is, it is okay. I figure that anyone into home brewing should be able to beat it. It doesn't tickle my taste buds as much as other...

The beer was the AHS Pliny Clone. Preboil volume was 6.5 gallons, and the boil time was 90 minutes. I am surprised that the recipe directions didn't seem to account for the longer boil, unless 1.5...

I recently brewed the AHS IPA, the kit. Everything went well, but I wasn't happy with the amount of hops in the kit, only because my last two brews were very hoppy IPA's. I wanted to try something...
