Not balanced at all and just a lot of bitter with no identifiable hop profile.

The smell kicks it. But the taste is malty.

I originally didn't like this beer that much out of the bottle, because of overpowering bitter hops. I had it fresh and on tap at Canandaigua Music and Arts Center (CMAC) and it was delicious. Upped my rating from a 3.25 to a 3.75 based on draft.
