I had a Pliny the other night and I started getting a little buzz, and like… it was nice.
Better than nice, actually. I really felt like it was different. The buzz was different. Slightly elevated.
It hit differently than a standard DIPA. The quality of buzz was just a little bit better.
Maybe that is my brain thinking it is better because it is a Russian River beer.
When you think about it though, does that make it any less real? If my brain feels the buzz is better because it is a higher quality beer, doesn’t that make it real?
