look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Slightly below its rather lofty reputation.

I like the amberish color when poured, and the aroma of hops is quite pleasing.

The taste is stronger on the alcohol side than I was expecting (but then again, I had just finished a Sam Adams Porch Rocker before this beer).

The back of the tongue bitterness is quite good with a bitter kick.

Still, I think it's just above average.
