Quick Take: An inoffensive, but merely ok beer that doesn’t wow. For me, it’s a pretty simple, slightly bland beer that isn’t worth the money. The sake aging doesn’t add enough to justify the expense, even for craft heads.
Quick Take: I would place this firmly in the average category. That nice, toasty resin aroma is delectable and the taste is balanced, but it isn’t enough to overcome this pedestrian DIPA’s shortcomings. The lack of assertive qualities or identity makes this a boring beer. Nothing for the fresh hop heads or bright citrus pine nuts out there to get excited about, but you can do far worse.
