I had this at the Busted Sandal Brewpub. It was a rough draft but I had heard they were in the process of fermenting it. And I heard it was based and influenced by bringing awareness to Breast Cancer, which is cool. But to my review. I noticed that it had a deep, thick head. I can detect the spices, a bit malty and ultra hoppy. It is also bitter, totally in contrast to their other beers. I like that it has more attack and bite. The wash down is frothy and you sense it when in its swallow. It’s good, but I’d like to see them do a barley wine or veer towards an Imperial IPA. It’s like they take the rulebook and throw it out the window. I give it 3 and a half stars!
