Not my favorite Three Floyds brew. I love big hoppy beers, but I think the hops in this one are overdone because of the types of hops used. Here the English hops come off harsh and too bitter in muddy sort of way, and the malt tastes a bit too thick and chewy as well. The malt and hops don't balance each other but compound the assault on the palate with no contrast in sight. Oh well, not to my taste.
