3.56/5  rDev -11.4%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Appearance - poured from a bottle into a goblet. A little more yellow than the Hoptimum imperial IPA I recently enjoyed, still a beautiful color though. A wonderful one finger white head that is oily and laceable.

Smell - actually not as strong as I hoped for but still nice. Floral, hops, normal IPA smells.

Taste - much like the smell really lacking quite a bit. I like to be punched in the mouth by my ipas. Decent.

Mouthfeel - what you would expect.

Overall - a good offering from Great Lakes and I have had better Lake Erie monsters, maybe this bottle was a bit old. Great Lakes is my favorite brewery so they get some brownie points.
