Very high in hop bitterness. Dry-hopped for extra hop aroma. Requires a massive amount of malt to achieve the 11.1% ABV and very high late hop additions to match the intense hop flavor.

    Tapped this one tonight! Modified with 1/2 2-Row and 1/2 Marris Otter. Sweet to the lips, hops come out as it warms, good warmth, and great hop! Close to HI RES (one of my favs) Will be doing this one again!


    I Luv Beer

    Just picked up a 4-pack and cracked the first one. Amazing how well the alcohol is hidden in this beer. Mind blowing fruity hop flavor. Hoping to brew this one soon.



    Wondering if there might also be some Mosaic hops in Hi-Res.



      I was thinking mosaic also.



      Mogges, you’ve never brewed. You prblboay drink bud light, And as a result, are an enemy of beer. If you do drink good beer, you’ve missed the point completely. Good luck with the rest of you mundane life.
