there is really no need for this to be as strong as it is, i find it frustrating to drinkability, and also annoyingly overbalanced. there is an awesome hop nose on it, juicy and fresh and a little sweet, but with a taffy or bubblegum element too, neat hopping for sure. the beer is caramel in color, and definitely has some of that sweetness in the grain flavor too, its only medium bodied, but its heavy a little from the long lasting grain taste, which outlasts the hops in what turn into a tinny finish. carbonation is fine, but the feel is heavy and weird and it sort of starts breaking down into disunity. the nose is the best feature by far in this one. dial back the two row a bit here, and you have something much improved. i think the hops are well thought out, but there is a little refinement necessary on the whole.

Very disappointing - white head, too much carbonation, poor nose and alcohol taste predominant.
