Not being a hop head I can't rate this beer highly as it is very hoppy and my taste buds were tingling or just smacked hard by the bitterness.. the quintessential Pale Ale for hops and bitterness with little malt balance in the glass that I tried. Alcohol to boot that is disguised in the hoppy overtones.
Serving type: on-tap

12oz bottle from a sample pack, poured into a pint glass. Enjoy by 9/5/14
Pours a deep reddish copper with a large slightly off white head. Decent carbonation, thick lacing.
Getting a very malty aroma
As the bottle states, this is an aggressive tasting beer, a bit boozy at times. Malts and hops battle it out, hops winning early on, before roasted malts pack a punch at the end. Lots of carbonation & bitterness on the tongue, and the heavily roasted malts in the back of the mouth.
Overall, it's good, but personally, I much prefer the oak aged version.
