Glowing gold with a white head. Loads of citrus, grass, earthy, and funky hops in this one. A bit of malt to balance it but not overly sweet like most imperial ipas. I could down a sixer of these except for that hidden 9% abv. Good stuff.

UPDATED: JUL 11, 2010 Ummmm hops and resin and hops and citrus and hops. Pretty much explains this boldly hopped brew from GLBC. So glad the guys in Cleveland decided to share this beer again through bottles as the Monster had been "tamed" at the brew pub. However, this beer has real legs and not some mass-produced seasonal that you should look over. A golden body and off-white head makes for a pleasing and intense hop flavor. GLBC knows how to makes beers with flavor and this one does not dissapoint. If resiny hops and spruce aftertaste are what you after, grab a bottle of the Lake Erie Monster...because who knows when you will see it again.

Bottle thanks to Miketd. Pours a clear copper color with a small white head. A rich nose of fruit and citrus hops. The flavor is almost dry; fruity hops, light bitterness, smooth and tasty. Very fruity.

In a word, balance. A full mouthfeel, and a meal in itself. Enjoyed on tap at Pizza Plant Transit, post-extreme beer fest. Orange-Peachy colour, with lace sheets. Fruity aroma. Very fresh.

12 oz bottle. Poured a hazy orange/yellow color with white head. Aroma of citrus and fruits, and of course hops. MMMMMMMMM.....what a taste...this is almost up there with Bell’s Hopslam. High ABV, warm going down. Huge hop flavors with citrus and minor spice. Great IPA. Def worth the purchase.

Slightly hazy gold pour with a small, loose white head and good lacing. Sweet honey and biscuit malt aroma, a little floral, some subtle melon and grapefruit, touch of orange peel. Very nice aroma but a tad mild. Moderate honey and melon flavor with a big pine finish. Some toast, grapefruit and orange peel with a note of macintosh apple and a floral finish. Creamy medium body with soft carbonation.
