Awesome beer! Maybe not the greatest I have ever had... but it is in the top 10. I think there might be a little over-hype going on... but it is an amazing beer!

It smells amazing! I wish it tasted a little closer to how it smells!

this @gregspeakshismind is total RUBBISH!!!! He chugs his craft beer?? Do not take a young boy like himself serious. Just had this TODAY, the smell is grand, taste, look, and when slightly chilled, it's fantastic. Overall very satisfied with this craft beer.Do no listen to him and report him if you can, he only writes negative reviews. Gregspeakshismind, stick to naty ice if you love beer bonging so much, little boy. LMFAO.

One of my fraternity pledges from California brought a bottle of this back after spring break... I bonged it to the dome and yacked everywhere. Honestly it felt better coming up than going down. Never again will I drink this weak shit.
