Hate to judge a beer by its label, but I did with this one. A week ago I walked by it at the store and was like, looks weird. I knew it was probably good though, so when I was back I picked it up and thank the heavens. Very good stuff.

Beautiful color and carbonation, ruby brown body with a white head. Taste and smell are very earthy, bitter, hoppy. You can feel the hop oils on the back of your throat. Some fruitiness, mango and citrus hiding underneath the hop punch to the face. Nice nutty undertones. A little burnt in the finish, with obvious alcohol notes at the end as well.

I finished, the bottle, and felt real good, about the purchase and otherwise.
Buy again.
