After trying this I think I know why the dog is laughing. Another sucker, ha ha. On a more positive note, it seems like it has potential, meaning a fair starting base on which to build. It just hasn't been tweaked nearly enough. They gave up too soon.
It does have a distinct funkiness that's reminiscent of Ska Decadent Imperial IPA. However, if that's what you like, go for the Ska, which is far better. This one, unfortunately, is a real dog.

Good looking beer, with hops and citrus coming strong on the palate with a touch of alcohol burn. The balance is good, nice and hoppy and citrusy and a low key burn at the end, overall, a balanced beer that is good for one or two, and then you r done!!
