Very light and crisp. More on the hoppy side

One of the first beers to help me identify the infamous "cat piss" note some hops apparently evince. Combined with a noteworthy sulfuric note (not uncommon in lagers, but amped up to an overbearing level here), I just couldn't get into this brew. I admit that the Double IPL has historically been a touchy style for me, but Humulus was one I just couldn't abide.
