Paid only $11.99 for a growler at Party Town in Florence, KY!
The beer pours a bourbon colored base with a moderate sized head and decent lacing effects. The aroma, well, it's hop heaven to keep it simple... moderate notes of honey and citrus; absolutely fantastic!
The overall experience of this beer is amazingly smooth for an Imperial IPA, the citrus elements of sweetness offset the massive hops and create a wonderful balance. The carbonation is minimal and its light-to moderate in heaviness. Session, session, session if you can afford it, the growler is an amazing experience!
Final Thought: This makes the top 5 of over 300+ beer reviews, that is saying a lot!

12oz bottle bottled on 1/16/14 poured into a tulip glass.
A: Pours a translucent golden orange body, with an off-white 2 finger head. Decent lacing and retention.
S: CItrus and floral hops, some boozy sweetness.
T: Honey and citrus hops dominate. Along with some dank hops when i burp.
M: Crisp and bitter. Alcohol is fairly well hidden for the ABV.
O: Its alright I honestly don't see the reason for all the hype. I may get it on draft if i see it, but for $20+ a six pack its a bit steep.

AS far as an over hyped IPA goes this is the tops.
Everyone wants it and no owns has it. That is retarded. This beer is available. Bell's just chooses to limit how it comes out. Good for them, bag for all of us.
This is a good IOA. Two Hearted with a good finish. Then add in that the Honey really finished the deal.
