I just had to know what 100+ IBUs is like. I tend to like hops so i didn't think the bitterness would be an issue, and it wasn't. This poured a lot lighter than i expected, almost the color of a belgian pale ale, but with a very nice head. The smell was pure hops. I love that smell. I swear it clears the sinuses like spicy food. The taste does not mess around. It is hops, hops and more hops. I would not say this is the most balanced beer every, but i don't think that is what they were going for. Good mouthfeel from the sharp bitterness and good carb. I thought this was fairly drinkable. All in all very good. I enjoyed it, but i wouldn't say it ruined me.
