Great aromas like sniffing a bag of hops. You can even get the aroma while holding the glass a good 6-8 inches from your nose. Phenomenal. Nice sweet hop bite that’s very flavorful and not bitter. A good chunk of caramel malt sweetness rushes in for attention, but generally gets pummeled back by hops flavor. Notable, but not overpowering hop flavor in the aftertaste that lingers a long time. Great beer, but I don’t think my taste buds could handle the onslaught of more than one.   

4.5 out of 5 stars.

Strong sweet hop aroma, very succulent. Initial flavor has hop bite, then quickly changes to a mixed hop bouquet of flavors. Backed up by a hearty malt backing, but left with a hop bitterness than lingers. Very powerful flavors going on here, but excellently balanced and doesn’t give me any hints of its massive ABV.

Slightly sweet aroma.  Initial taste is one of both strong hops and strong malt.  The hop taste transitions to end up with a strong malt taste that tapers off slowly.  Leaves you a bit confused with all these strong flavors and aromas coming and going.  After a few drinks, the aftertaste starts to collide with the aroma, and the 2 do not compliment each other.  Leaves you feeling like you’re not sure if you can handle another drink.  In the end, I think I prefer not, but it still intrigues me for some reason…
