Holy hops! I am not a real hophead and when I first cracked this and smelled it I thought wow, this will be potent. It has such a unique smell to it though, so I took a sip and was amazed. What a different tasting beer, the hops still are a little on the strong side for me, but it was an experience.

No wonder it got such high ratings.

Stone advertizing is the BEST THERE IS,,, LOVE IT!! Talk about effective!!! I've had probably 100 commercial bottles of ABA in my life and brewed nearly the same of it. They were the holy grail of brewery's for many years for me and always will be near the top.

You will eventually find the flavor to be just good and not overwhelming. You just need to keep trying different IPAs. Everyone becomes a hophead eventually.
