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 Development Brewer:

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.

Incredible triple - and my first triple!

Before going forward, let me note I use the Catalyst fermentation system, and I am a new brewer so I am still making all the mistakes! Ok, read on.

LOVE this beer. I finished brewing it about 2 weeks ago, and it is now fully carbonated. (That being said, I definitely drank a few bottles before it was "finished"... and I'd do it again too)
Delicious. Super sharp and packs a punch. I actually watered it down quite a bit because there was a lot of volume loss during fermentation due to blow off, due to the fact I had to fill the fermenter with 6 gallons of liquid to compensate for volume loss due to the FULL POUND OF HOPS.

Anyway, I added probably 1.5 gallons of water back into it over the fermentation period to maintain a volume of 5 gallons. I was PETRIFIED I was going to contaminate or overly water down the brew, but it took it like a champ! My beer probably ended up around 7-8% (because I also didn't measure the gravity before fermenting... oops)

Highly recommend this, I will definitely be keeping an eye out for it again.
