Slight aroma but couldnít get too much out of it (hot as hell in the tasting room), better than the emerald Irish ale, but with more hops

Meh, this is the most average beer Iíve had in a minute. Looks pretty good, tastes too watery though. The hops donít really stand up and I just feel itís a weak representation of the style. This isnít a bad beer however, just a bit boring.
