Don't get me wrong, i enjoyed this the other night. especially after i let it warm up for 20 minutes, but i have trouble believing this is close enough in style to be on the bjcp commercial examples. the bottle says 50ibu, which is 40% more than the style guideline max. and this, i think comes through in flavor and aroma. (granted some of the "flavor" may be from the wonderful 8.5% abv. but it is in a style that there is supposed to be little or no hop flavor or aroma. the head was remarkably to style, tan but brief. and the color is quite appropriate. however, it is supposed to be clear. i have had gravy that was less murky.
