I searched the forums to make sure this wasn't posted in a while (not since 2015), so here goes; I recently traded for a beer that carries quite a bit of hype and the world class ratings to boot. After digging in, I was underwhelmed and relatively unimpressed. Maybe I became a cicerone overnight without taking an exam? Maybe I expect too much? Or, maybe the beer just isn't as good as the hype-train would lead one to believe/expect? Either way, I wanted to hear stories from others that have had a similar experience. Cheers!
