This is definitley one of my favorite beers for all those who love IPA's. It comes in at about 8% and it's wonderful. It's got a blast of aggressive bitterness that slowly fades to a soft fruity belgian yeast background. The malt is there but in the background like an IPA should be in my opinion. To do again i would mash at 153 for 60 mins instead of the hour to try and get a little more malt in there but the hops and the complexity of this brew are something to be savored.
