Agree with headache in a bottle comment. Nice tasting beer, but tried this several times with the same effect. Had 3 pints last night over 3 hours, not a lot by most standards, but boy what an effect. Splitting headache in the morning again. I don't normally post or publicly rate beers, but I think this warning is in order... I've have several 8.2% and higher beers without this after-effect. There must be some ingredient or by-product in this formula that causes the problem...Last night will be my last...

Headache in a bottle. I brew a dry high abv IPA and it is amazing. This makes wonder what they were thinking...I have tried to drink this a few different times thinking maybe I wasnt hydrated but sure enough nothing but a headache. Full of garbage impurities. These hipsters will rate anything high with a over load of hops and a cool logo. They should sell asprine with it.
