I'm guessing that this is a beer people either love or hate. The mega-hops recipe is both overpowering and delicious. There is a moderate aftertaste that is probably unavoidable with this level of hops, and it doesn't seem to matter if it is room temperature or ice cold. But overall it's great tasting beer and an excellent compromise between bitter and sweet.
