This beer is fantastic! Every time I have it I am amazed at how smooth it is for the it's ABV. The taste is extremely complex and refreshing. I can't help but feel like I'm pouring an IPA through a bouquet of fresh hops directly into my mouth. Hands down a beer to get your hands on if you happen to come by it.
