had this at founders on tap. i have never had such a hoppy tasting beer before - including 120 minute IPA, 90 minute IPA, oracle, pliny the elder, double jack, etc. at bottleworks in seattle i bought a hop-flavored hard candy and it tasted similar. the taste is hops, hops, hops. pleasantly so, but intensely bitter. after you swallow, the hop bomb of an aftertaste hits you and it tastes like that candy - which also has an unfortunate resemblance to chewing on dank marijuana.
i finished my beer, but it was hard to do. i enjoyed it, but the hop bomb at the end with the specific hops they are using that taste grassy/weed-like make it bordering on unpleasant. i'd drink one again, but i'd reach for an oracle (only 2% less ABV) far before this.
p.s. the 2011 version is on the chalkboard as 13%, not 12%.
