I'm not going to lie. I love Weyerbacher, I love Simcoe hops, and I love DIPAs, but this beer was way out of whack. Aroma was a strong hoppiness, but did not forewarn of what was ahead. The flavor/mouthfeel combination (I do not lie) reminds me of earwax. Something is wrong here. It's not the IBUs, it's not the abv, but something is awry, and I don't like it. Again, I love Simcoe hops, (check out the Dreadnaught for a wonderful example), and I've made some wonderful homebrew with them. There is just something terribly unbalanced about this beer that I can't quite put my finger on. Check out the far superior Weyerbacher 11 if you like a strong but delicious malt/hop balance.
Serving type: on-tap
