Hey guys, went out with some friends last night and came across this beer:

Hedonism Ale (Legacy Brewing, Reading, PA)
Wickedly tasty red ale packed with a full aroma from dry hopping and a massive hop flavor. Specially brewed with all European malts and West Coast whole flower hops. The result is a rich ruby red color; lacy collar and a feast of hop aroma and flavor.

Style: Northern California Inspired Red Ale
Alcohol: 7.10% ABV
IBU: 110
Hops: Washington Whole Flower
Malts: German, Belgian
Availability: Year round

I had never even heard of it before last night when I stopped in to North 3rd. in Northern Liberties (Philadelphia) and saw it on tap, so I figured I'd give it a shot. If you're a hophead, then this one is right up your alley (IBU of 110!). Crisp and clean, not too sweet, not too dry, good hop aroma/flavoring, and the bittering hops definitely make their presence known.

Just wondering if anyone out there has tried this brew before, and if so, what you thought of it.

I've had an ale called Hedonism, but can't remember the brewery. Been a few years.

Sounds almost similar to Imperial Hellfire!
