Product details

Modeled after Russian River Brewing Company's best-selling Pliny the Younger, this overgrown nephew and adopted son to our best-selling Plinian Legacy is as American as excess itself. With only enough ingredients for 300 recipe kits, the only limited part of this triple IPA is the number of kits we have available. Full-bodied with extreme hop character, the explosive citrus, pine, and grapefruit resins are barely balanced by a huge 10% ABV.

Featuring three hop shots and 19 oz. of hops made up of nearly every iconic American favorite from Centennial to Simcoe, impressionable palates beware. The complex, overpowering citrus profile of The Plinian Progeny does not fade as quickly as its youthful namesake.

Brewing Notes

  • Style: Imperial IPA
  • Fermentation Range: 60 - 73F
  • Original Gravity: 1.090
  • SRM: 6
  • IBUs: 150+
  • ABV: 10.0%

Tasting Notes

  • Aroma: Faint backbone of slightly sweet malt, but dominated by the hops. Generous aromas of citrus, pine, dank resin and fruit dominate the nose from dry-hopping.
  • Appearance: Deep golden to orangeish color. Clarity is a bit low due to massive dry hop additions. Nice, firm, long-lasting white head laces all the way to the bottom of your glass.
  • Flavor: Malt is not prominent. The flavor is dominated by a complex hop character of fruit, citrus, pine, and resin. Clean fermentation profile. Balance is decidedly towards the hops. Long, lingering bitter finish sticks on the palate.
  • Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation. Faint alcohol warmth on the finish. No astringency.

Notes from Brad, Northern Brewer Head DevelopmentBrewer:

This monolith of an ale can be a bit tricky to brew—the nearly irrational quantity of hops is a monster to handle.  Due to massive hop additions, The Plinian Progeny recipe has been formulated to produce 6 gallons of wort. The extra gallon makes up for loss due to the excessive trub you’ll find at both the bottom of the kettle from boil additions and in your fermentor from dry-hopping.  

It may sound appealing to use a hop boiling bag, but beware—keeping the hops quarantined will limit hop utilization and the resulting bitterness, flavor and aroma necessary for a triple IPA will be diminished. For the most intense hop experience, abide by the 6-gallon recommendation and enjoy the Plinian Progeny in its infancy—its best hop character fades with age.

Excellent kit!

Really delicious TIPA kit! I’ve not had the Younger, but I’ve had the Elder, and this is an amped up version—as advertised. Obscene amount of malt & hops, so make sure you account for water loss. Expensive kit, but very worth it!

This is just what I needed a few years into the NEIPA craze. I live on the east coast so I’ve never had the younger but I’ve had the elder several times, even next to this clone. Very balanced, strong ale with that classic west coast style IPA taste. I went with the omega west coast ale yeast.

So far so good!

I just kegged this beast of a beer yesterday! Took a sample sip as well, and wow! Can’t wait to enjoy the final product!

Ingredients alone make the kit worth every penny. Oh my! 20 ounces of hops and 3 hop shots! My only warning is to have equipment large enough to do the mash (15 gal or larger). Because of this, I am in the market for a larger brewer.

My friends rave about the Plinian Progeny. It took a bit of bottle conditioning, but this one turned out to be a bold and beautiful brew.
