I just pulled my first pint from the keg of the Pliny the Elder clone from the AHS kit (all grain) And WOW it is good!! It is much better than I thought it would be. It has a nice floral aroma, a little piney, citrus. I expected the hops to be overbearing because of the amounts you put in and the double dry hopping. You get the strong bitterness of hops in the first sips, but it smooths out so nicely as you drink more. I cant compare the kit to the actual pliny since I have never had the real thing as they dont sell it in my region. I have it ice cold in the kegerator and I am sure it will go quick in my house. Lol.
Ill be making another back in the near future (minus the kit). You guys are gonna love it!
