Ive found this to have tons of hoppy flavor while still being balanced and malty. I think this is due to the high amount of dextrins and the honey malt that adds a nice sweetness to the backend.

The alcohol is well hidden at 7.7%ABV and even having a chewy mouthfeel they go down to easy and linger with great hoppy notes.

Hope you enjoy!
Cheers.
