For me this was a better drink in a lot of ways than was the hoparillo, which I found sweet and way too boozy. This one has a far different hop complexion, more bitter and abrasive, more challenging, just as long in the finish, and way less balanced. The abv here thankfully is irrelevant, and it ends up being the hop intensity that slows me down, not the strength. As sticky sappy as the other, just not loaded with grain and even maybe candy sugar, more traditional in that way. Yeast is solid here, cleaning up sugar well and putting just a slight fruity theme in there with the big boy hops. Even a touch of darker crystal malt gives this glass of suds some skeletal support. I am yet to be floored by these guys though, which given their reputation is now overdue
