Great beer, not as hoppy as I thought, but just enough to make it a great beer.

A little malty but that supports the abv. Not as intimidating as I thought it would be, dangerously good to drink.

I'm not into really hoppy beer, but I have to give this one credit for its honesty. Hoppy smell with a fruity/hoppy kick that evolves into a lingering bitterness that isn't unpleasant. It just is what it is! If you like hoppy beer, you'll enjoy this one.

Strong hop bite up front but smooth on the finish and aftertaste
ABV is hidden very well and the malty backbone does an OK job smoothing the IBU
It doesn't wreck your palate but certainty wakes it up
