I've had this beer over the years since the original release, and even though it has been drastically inconsistent in both bottle and draft format, I think its time to write this one off as inconsistency has seemed to just become consistent mediocrity in recent years. Light non-descript hop aroma mixes with sulfur. Somewhat astringent bitterness offset by a sweetish malt background that bored. No juicy, citrusy, grapefruit, or pine hop aroma or flavor it once had that made this beer interesting. Bet buy date notched May 2012, so this can't be that old. At $9.50 a six pack not worth the chance that it might actually be good to bother anymore.
