This was my very first ale. First few sips kind of had me thinking what the hell is that...The bitterness almost overwhelmed me. Keep in mind I drank only lagers before trying this. But after a few sips of it it just grew on me. Ever since I have been buying more ales than lagers. I have this beer to thank for that. It got me into a whole new world. It indeed, turned me into a hop head.

Never had an "American strong ale" to compare it with but its a pretty regular beer for me. I enjoy it a lot. Good beer for a hop head.

It's very powerful at first and wasn't expecting it, but over all to me it's one of the best beers, It's not for people who don't like strong tasting beers, It'll also make get a faster buzz then most beers with just 1, 1 pint bottle. The sent of it is a tad different from the others but I can't put my finger on it, the taste of it is like no beer I ever had, you really could taste it the after taste is a bit odd though as it has like a mediciney after taste but it isn't bad to the point of you cannot drink it.

I plan on purchasing this beer again and trying the other kinds as well and reviewing them also, but so far the brewers are doing a really great job with this ale and I wish they keep up with the dedication they put into it.
