Yeah... This beer is not rebelling against anything. The overload on cascade hops is somewhat... no, it's exactly like the Sierra Nevada Pale Ale. The main difference between the Sierra Nevada pale ale and this beer is that the Sierra Nevada is original and has a better finish than the chinook doped contraption conceived by sam adams. Since the price is virtually the same for a 6 pack. Go with the original. Go with Sierra Nevada

Seems like Sam Adams is trying too hard to rip off the heat that Brew Dog has created... especially with the label... it's a below average American IPA. I had high expectations for the brew and was disappointed from the moment I opened the bottle. I hope this is not a trend, and hopefully this is just a one off mistake
