You may have thought Speakeasy’s Bid Daddy had some hops to it, well this one has more hop, more malt, and more alcohol. Nothing like a massively hopped IPA to make your taste buds sing, and nothing like enough of a malt character to balance out all of those hops and if you are going to use all of that malt you have to ferment it well enough and that will give you 9.5% alcohol. Few companies achieve this BIG of beer and this level balance. Some are too bitter for the malting and other are too sweet for the hopping but IMHO this one is right on the mark.
