Not so brutal. Not as hoppy as I thought. More hop brutality would be good. Then again, though this is labeled as an IPA, Rogue indicates the style is bitter. I think that would have been a more accurate representation and I wouldn't have expected as much and felt so let down by this beer. And yes, I know almost everyone else will disagree with me.
