This was a beer I was really excited to try. The cost on the case made me think this better impress me! At first pour the hop odor wasn't overly powerful but there. I also got a sweet smell of citrus or orange peel. The taste was boozy and hoppy but extremely sweet and smooth. I expected a more harsh bite and sting from this. The mouthfeel is clean and fresh. The beer in my opinion is very good just a little too sweet for my liking. I am still enjoying it and would recommend a try. It is strong and boozy and hoppy, but something about the sweetness of this throws me.
