Super yummy and satisfyingly sweet from the honey malt. Minimal head that doesn't linger, low/med carbonation. The slightly thick viscosity makes for a creamier feel in the mouth. Don't pass this one up! The crisp bite from the hops hits up front but is quickly mellowed out by the honey! It's great.

Poured into a 12oz snifter glass via draft @ City Works (King of Prussia, PA)

dark yellow in color with a slight orange hue
smell is sweet, like honey..minimal citrus presence
taste is all hops with some sweet maltiness at the end
medium to semi-thick body, minimal carbination
this is an old school imperial IPA and well done if you are looking to take a break from the Hazy NEIPA that dominate nowadays

Great looking Double IPA, somewhat cloudy but rich in appearance. Smells fantastic. It is equally delicious. Chews awesome and is a pleasure to drink. Reminds me of so many DIPA’s that are so awesome. Don’t pass this up. It’s a MUST try.

I like imperial IPAs, but this was way too sweet on the honey side. Sorry Great Lakes, but I'll pass on this one. If I want something this sweet , I'll find a lollipop to have.

Poured from bottle to tulip glass. Copper color liquid with a finger of off white bubbly head. Aromas of citrus, grapefruit rind, honey, biscuit. Flavors of papaya, mango, grapefruit, orange zest, biscuit, caramel, honey. Excellent balance for giant flavors.
