Rich sweet hop aroma, but not too strong. Nice sharp go bite with a strong malt flavor in the background. Finishes with a nice balance of hops and malt and minor hop flavors fading in the distance. Gives no hint of its big ABV. Label says 040514, but it’s May 9th. I got this as a gift from someone a little over a month ago, so I must have missed the best by date by a month. I wonder how it would be fresh.
4.5 out of 5 Stars.
