It's got a lot of Chinook, which gives it a rather piney taste/aroma, and you can smell it from three feet away after popping a can open. Apparently it's brewed with a type of ale yeast that flocculates at a lower temperature, which imparts a clean-drinking quality to the beer despite its 8% ABV. Most hop additions are also late, so they contribute mostly to taste and aroma rather than bitterness (although it has something like 120 IBUs). There's nothing I'd rather drink.
Have you had the luxury of having the Maharaja? 102 IBUs and 10.25% ABV. Its got a fantastic citrus finish and is one of my favs for sure.
Def. try and get your hands on some Younger at some point.
Maharaja - is mainly brewed with Centennial and Simcoe similar to Younger. However, Maharaja does have the Chinook hops in it as well.
