It looks a bit like a cultivar I saw labeled "Golden Eagle" but I have only seen one picture with that label and ICPS doesn't have it listed. I bought it as an unlabeled rhyzome. It is quite a spectacular plant. My guess is that it is something along the lines of ([rubra x rosea] x leucophylla) x rubra or alata. Not really sure, so it's just a stab in the dark.

The lid reminds me of a frilled lizard

Looks a bit like sarracenia "Leo Song". Parentage is Sarracenia pupurea subsp. venosa and S. oreophila.

Could be one of the parents. This one is much taller, at around 14".

I considered that was a possibility but the morphology of the hood looks like it's got leucophylla in it to me, especially when it is opening. I think looking into that is when I found the cultivar labeled "Golden Eagle"
