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!
