This is one my buddy gave me after he ran down that way. It’s one I had never tried before, so I was interested if it lived up to its name.
It does…ish. So this pale ale has a good hop profile, but I personally think the malt backbone is a little too much on this. Now, I’m not one for the malt forward beers, typically. I can, however, appreciate this one. It’s 5.5% ABV with 55 IBUs. While present, I don’t get the bitterness you’d expect with that sort of IBU.
Overall, while it’s not my favorite beer they brew, I can sit and enjoy a few.
