Paid $8.99 for a growler at The Party Source (Bellevue, KY)
The beer pours amber colored with a frothy white head, good retention and lacing on the glass. The aroma is quite limited in citrus hops.
Low carbonation, orange and lemon tones, sweet hops and not over-powering, quite balanced brew. Extremely smooth for its style, maybe best in class. It's quite drinkable at such a high ABV... gladly drank most of the growler in one long, long session!
Final Thought: This is one of the best beers for a high ABV being masked by quality flavor... however, isn't anything more than a solid brew; recommended!
Serving type: growler

Pours a golden yellow color with a two finger foamy white head.
Aroma is bready, malty, caramel, toffee.
Flavor is much milder than the aroma. Malty but you get a good hop bitterness with a lingering flavor is apple and citrus.
You can't taste the alcohol but you can tell its a heavy hitter beer.
