Amending my previous rating as it changes the more Spanakopida/Ouzo/Metaxa I swallow. If InBev came out with a beer with less flavor than a BL Ultra, it would be this. The definition of hoppy water. If my brother was on fire, I'd reach for this b4 water.
Much more mild than I've come to expect from Pipeworks....dare I say bland? Not a bad beer, but somewhat simplistic compared to the wave of flavors I've come to expect from this stellar brewery. If it were anyone else, I'd say this is solid...Earned the Cheers to Independent U.S. Craft Breweries (Level 91) badge! Earned the Sky's the Limit (Level 71) badge!
The flaked/malted oats absolutely do it for me here....creates such a rich & smooth mouth feel along with an almost cream-like finish. Don't let the citrus conditioning steer you away...it's almost an afterthout to the massive maltiness.
