Just say no to overpriced over-hyped beers!!
Don`t think i can Skien, this beer reminds me of the first time I had hoptimum, I ran out and bought a case.
Supposedly this beer will get even better with age. Im heading back to where i got it and will stock up. I know it`s expensive but i will savor it for a long time and share with friends at the right occassions.
BTW it`s also the best buzz i have ever got off one beer. That along with my enjoyment of the flavors it`s a total winner for me.
here is another rating on it that I thought was funny.

Beware this year’s bigfoot, friends. Pours a nice rich amber/copper with a small head that drifts out like the rings of Saturn. The harrowing howl of the hairy cryptic is heard in the distance as you bring the glass to your nose. You nervously sniff as the beast approaches. Vanilla, caramel, bourbon, raisins/prunes, and a hint of that booziness. You hear rustling in the trees as the creature gets nearer. You quaff. "Holy #2," you say, as you take in the complexities: lingering caramelized sugars, massive tannins and oak, more raisins, figs, etc., hop bitterness resting on the tongue and giving way to a kind of woody destruction with a hint of honey, a winter-friendly alcohol burn trickling down your gullet as the Bigfoot raises its paw and strikes you down for good. Your campfire smolders as the creature wanders off. You’re dead, but smiling.
