look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3

The nose is a cocoa-laden breadfruity/coco puff kinda thing. Promising.

Ah, but the taste is a hoppy, non-chocolately thin chug of lacklusterness.

Such promise on the nose. Sucha let down on the tongue. You would think someone switched on you just before a sip.

Complete surprise to me. I usually love Sierra Nevada, but this... too many better choices out there. But hardly anyone does hops like SN.
