Drank straight from the bottle.

I have to say from the start, that if you pick this up expecting something very hoppy, you will be dissapointed; I fail to see how people on here are saying this has a ton of hop flavor to it.

Right away from the smell I was disappointed; much more malt than hop here, and same going for the taste. Definitely NOT a "hop monster" as stated on the label; yes, there is a hop presence; but for a double IPA and from reading the label I was expecting this to be far more hop-forward than the large malt presence.

I tried to put this aside and review it for what it was, and it isn't "bad", per se.But if you're expecting plenty of hops I say take a pass on this; if you're looking to try something different, give it a shot. Sadly, I won't be having this again.
