This is harsh, true to the labeling 'ruthless'. It exhibits all the qualities of a bad 1970's "Special Brew" or Barley Wine but without the finesse. This, is almost going down the sink quality, sacrifices taste for strength, and not very well. Pathetic.

It's been years since I've had this, long enough to not remember what I thought. Holds up well though, Nelson Sauvin is a hit and miss hop but works here.
