Default Nice beer, give it a try.

I had one of these today for the first time and at first sip, I wasn't too sure but once my palate adjusted, I really liked it a lot. This is an extremely full flavored beer. The complexity is amaizing.

Give it a try.

I've had a couple of those and thought that they were pretty good. They didn't seem that hoppy to me tho...I guess my tastes must be changing. It is very well balanced.

I suppose it could just be my sence of taste. I usually perfer malty brews hence my brewing of Scottish ales. Most of my favorite beers have a relatively low hop rate.

This one hit me full in the face with hop aroma when I poured it in the glass and my first sip was a bit astringent but it grew on me. The sweetness came through in subsequent tastings as well as a really fruty/spicy character.

It was different to me in a good way. Maybe nothing special to the rest of you.
