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!
Serving type: growler

Had been looking forward to this beer for several months and was able to find it at a Whole Foods in my area. The store kept this beer in their backroom with strict limits per customer. Now I know why.
Great pour with noticeable head. Slightly hazy caramel color.
Immediate strong hops presence and followed by slightly sweet after taste.
Hints of banana and caramel.
Waited a long time for this one and was not disappointed. I should have found a way to buy more since now it appears I have to wait till next year for more.
