4/5 rDev -0.7%
An excellent IIPA from Great Lakes. Pours a hazy yellow amber with nice froth head and great white
lacing. Excellent bouquet of caramel, citrus hops, bittering hops, floral like mead notes, and tons
of sweet malt. Taste is very similar with sweet malt up front, alcoholic warmth on the back mingling
with beautiful citrus and caramel notes. While I am no IPA drinker THIS is one fine brew with
a smooth caramel malt and bittering hops aftertaste and great decently carbonated mouthfeel.

4.25/5 rDev +5.5%
I have to be completely forthright, I feel I have to tell you I picked this up at a Wally World when food shopping for the week while was TDY to Wright Patterson AFB. My selection was based solely on the 9.1%abv (needed a high octane offering) and that it was an Imperial IPA (my go to fav)!!! That being said, I count this among my best "random" picks ever! True to form, the IIPA does not disappoint! Anyone that's read my rambling posts knows I am a true Stone convert, and as such, believe "Enjoy By", is the standard from which all other IIPA's must be judged! Therefore, I am obligated to say Great Lakes "Lake Erie Monster" stands tall! The 9.1% is well hidden and hop bang is sublimed so that you're not wrecking your palate (take note Green Flash), leaving you with an enjoyable experience from start to finish! Do yourself a favor and give this a try!
