Very hoppy, but in a good way. The end result is a beer with a lot of hoppy taste but a very subtle and yet profound malty base. It is not a chugging beer by any standards but would be great with any red meat or hearty vegetarian meal.

I personally substituted the wirlfloc tablets for Irish moss and omitted the the ph stabilizer because our water is good in the pacific northwest. I may cut the dry hops in half, because it seemed a little overkill and not all of them became saturated, most of them just sat on top in the carboy. Overall this was is outstanding beer and I will make it again.
