A classic for sure and something I drink cases and cases of each year. What I love about this beer is that every batch seems slightly different but yet is always drinkable and satisfying. And should be applauded for being accessible and affordable in today's race to be the rarest and most expensive.
But the latest batch I am drinking (0278xxxx)sometimes gives me hints of phenolic character hiding behind the intensity of the hops. Just putting this out there in case others might have experienced this and are afraid to say so due to the overwhelming majority of excellent reviews. I'm not even sure if its just me as sometimes I can detect it and sometimes not. More research necessary. Otherwise this is a near 5.0 beer.
