This beer has a lot going for it. It has a thick mouthfeel and pleasant honey flavors. It has a very bitter flavor while sipping that lingers as a strong aftertaste. This is something I am not particularly fond of in beer, though it's something that others sometimes look for. I finished drinking the beer I used for this review but I wouldn't buy a 6-pack of it. If you like hoppy IPAs then you might love this beer. It's other flavors are quite nice.
