From Brau Brothers: 

This year’s version is very good. Lower alpha acid levels drop the bitterness a little, however the aroma is much better. Very strong orange and pineapple, which is odd, as our classic “C” hops (Centennial, Cascade) were a smaller percentage of the overall hop bill. Our European hops (Goldings, Fuggles, Hallertaur) yielded much better than in past years, and subsequently are a bigger piece of the Hundred Yard Dash Hop pie. Overall, good beer.  We’ll definitely drink it.

From Brau Brothers:

You heard it right, releasing on January 24th, our first and only Imperial Stout!  Definitely an American take on the style. A ton of hops are used, throughout the boil, both to balance the massive amount of malt, and also to add hop flavor and aroma. A complex malt bill blends a variety of roasted malts pushing the ABV to just under 10%. Look for it on tap and in four packs very soon!
