Does not wreck your palate, but does turn it every which way but loose. Great example of a high IBU beer that's not harsh. High ABV is undetectable. Good stuff.

Finally found this beer after searching for months after hearing rave reviews. I'd say it lived up to the hype. Great beer.

You know what your getting with the title. Very hoppy, but the finish is not too harsh. Mild citrus notes.

Draft pour into tulip glass. Pale golden color with tints of reddish brown. Nice small head with minimal retention and light lacing. Excellent hop aroma builds the anticipation for the taste. Taste did not disappoint. Very delicious and well-balanced for the high happiness. This is my kind of beer and an excellent way to end the night. If you had this first, you wouldn't be able to properly appreciate a lesser beer.
