12 oz. bottle poured into a tulip glass.

L---Rich, hazy amber color. Fluffy off-white head with little retention (left a persistent cap, though). Very nice lacing.

S---Maltier than I was expecting. Caramel & breadiness. Plenty of hops as well. Citrus & pine. Excellently balanced between hops & malts.

T---Juicy citrus is in the forefront. Pine & malts come in the background.

F---Heavier than I was expecting. Nicely carbonated.

O---Not one to chug or have a bunch of. A slow sipper. Excellent, overall.

Very bitter and malty but I am enjoying after best by date. Poured a beautiful amber in a pint glass. Smell and taste is malt forward with slight hip citrus feel. Not a favorite but solid beer.

Nicely bitter, smells lovely as well. Poured a big head that didn't reduce completely, which was a nice detail, for me. This does not taste like a beer with 9.0% ABV, so I'm guessing that wonderful, strong hops flavor is covering the alcohol. Greatly enjoyed this- will look for it next year for sure!

Pours a beautiful amber burnt orange. A white sticky head that stays on the glass makes the beer look inviting.

Smell is sweet caramel with rounded out hops.

Taste is good, however disappointing. To me it does not live up to the standards of flavor that Great Lakes normally has. This is good for an IPA, but the taste is somewhat flat on the back end. You get the hops on the back of the tongue, but the malt misses the mark to round it out.

Feel is a bit thin.

Overall a good beer, but disappointing for a Double IPA at 9%. I would spend my money on Lake Erie Monster Imperial IPA instead.
