I was served this at the end of a brewery tour at Boston Beer Company, and to honest it was a bit too much for me.
Good if you like VERY hoppy beers, but for somebody like me who tends to like the more mild ales and such, this tasted kind of gross. Now obviously in a store I wouldn't pick this up because it blatently says on the bottle that it is extremely hoppy, so I don't blame the beer, nor do I think it is particularly bad, just not for me. I would recomend this beer to IPA fans and other such hop heads.
Look: Was very pretty to look at, amber-ish with a nice, lasting head.
Smell: Wow, hops and lots of them. To me smelled of citrus and maybe a bit like household cleaner.
Taste: Strong as F@*k, too hoppy for this guy. But good for hop fiends.
Mouthfeel: Almost burning sensation in my mouth from the bitterness of this beer. Honestly the overall package here made my girlfriend sick and me a little woozy.
Drinkability: I would only have one myself, but I can see my friends who really live for hops sticking with this for at least one more.
Just not for me I guess.
Serving type: on-tap

This beer is sorely missed! It was the first hop monster I had, and I had it at a time when I was not keen on the hop--much more into the malty beers. But this was a home run with me right off the bat. I wish Jim Koch and team would make it again. Anyone know if they will?
In short, this beer is so dry and yet so creamy. Quite an amazing beer!
