Help identifying Bromeliad

Can anyone help me identify this plant?

Does it look like it is going to flower soon or has it already? Any information would be greatly appreciated!

Looks a bit like Guz. Puna Gold.

Your plant I feel is Guz. Aurora,
if you compare the floral structure of the 2 suggested plants it is clearly evident as to your plants identity,definately NOT Guz.Puna Gold.When identifying a plant look beyond just the colour.
As far as flowering goes it's about at its peak.It should hold colour for another couple of months though.

Thanks for the ID help. The "plant people" were recycling plants at my wife's office and she thought this was a nice looking plant and had to bring it home. I'm looking forward to harvesting a few pups from her and raising them.
Thanks again,
