I bought this after a fairly long stint of not jumping on these releases of ‘JOOSE’ bombs, I grew tired of them and found them to be pretty one dimensional and straight forward, IPA flavour as I call it. However seeing these two heavy weights of hop forward beers come together, I caved and got myself a can. In all honesty, don’t get me wrong, it is a tasty bev and both brewery should be very happy with what they have made, however it’s not groundbreaking and for me, it does just slip into IPA flavour and doesn’t stand out as a great complex beer. I’m going to stick to me guns and scratch my hoppy itch with @ Transmission.
