I hate the term strong american ale as it just leaves so much to the imagination. This beer is like a strong ale meets an IPA and they had a kid. This is by far my favorite beer by great lakes (why do I always like the expensive beers?). I really don't feel like I can put words to how great this beer is.
For taste I wish I were better at explaining different hops but the hops come through as just bitter. You don't get that awful grape fruit flavor that many IPA's are using today. This is mixed with a strong ale (reminds me a bit of third coast ale) instead of the normal strong malt finish of say 90 minute you get a nice crisp yet sweet finish with a nice bit of alcohol backing it. For a beer of this size and strength the mouthfeel and drink ability match it perfectly. You can easily drink 2-3 of these without realizing it yet even on the first you know that you probably shouldn't keep drinking them all day.
