I'm guessing that this is a beer people either love or hate. The mega-hops recipe is both overpowering and delicious. There is a moderate aftertaste that is probably unavoidable with this level of hops, and it doesn't seem to matter if it is room temperature or ice cold. But overall it's great tasting beer and an excellent compromise between bitter and sweet.

I've had this beer many times, but never really analyzed it until recently. Smells so sweet and malty awesome. Bitterness is right on for the style, but very little character on the front and middle of tongue. I was expecting the same sweet flavor to announce itself on the mouth as it did on the nose, but was not so. It's a solid fall seasonal I will buy/drink again, but only on sale. Hey, where I live, this stuff is classy!

This beer is slightly bitter and has very little flavor otherwise. I expected more from this beer, given how much I’ve heard about it and how often I see it around. If you don’t want your beer to interfere with tasting your food, this would be the one for you.
There’s nothing offensive about it. It was really quite disappointingly neutral. An amber ale is supposed to have more flavor I think.
