COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
At the height of the heat in the heart of the summer, we felt that the only cure was a raging mouthful of fresh hops and malt. Caution: May remove enamel from teeth. This is Lagunitas IPA pumped up by about 30%!
IBU: 72.41

UPDATED: JUL 28, 2008 Grapefruit aroma and taste to start, but ends with nice hop bitterness. Medium body. Copper color and clear.

antzman (316) - Clarksville, Indiana, USA - OCT 8, 2007
Bomber. Pours a cloudy coppery orange with a thick white head. Excellent lacing on the glass. Extreme floral notes with a bit of citrus. The flavor was initially bitter, but with a nice malt balance. Plenty of citrus in the flavor. Medium mouthfeel. Very well done brew.

RiverHorse (457) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 7, 2007
Pours a hazy, straw color into the tulip with a two inch white head. A sticky lace coated the glass. The scent was flowery hops, citrus and spice. A very bitter beer with a harsh play on the palate.

TampaBeer (257) - Tampa, Florida, USA - SEP 28, 2007
Well done IPA, more like a 1 1/2 IPA. Sweetness, sourness, and bite are all there. Just noticed this is classified as a double IPA, which is probably more appropriate. Nice.

Taverner (1100) - San Ramon, California, USA - SEP 27, 2007
UPDATED: JUN 24, 2008 A decent Double IPA - very hoppy, with some citrus, not much pine, and caramel maltiness. On second analysis - this stuff is DANK Like Indica IPA, this stuff tastes like you’re eating a bong hit, in a good way :)

NIce and overly hoppy. Just like a double IPA should be. Grapefruit and caramel.

juiceisloose (1255) - Windermere, Florida, USA - SEP 23, 2007
Pours a coppery orange color with a thin wispy white head. The aroma is of piney hops, citrus fruits, grapefruit, and some malts. The hops hit you first, but not overpowering and are followed with a slightly sweet malt backbone. There was a good amount of grapefruit flavor, some floral notes, and malt sweetness. There wasn’t as much hops as I would of thought, but it was still good. It was medium to full bodied with a hop bitterness finish to it. Pretty solid for an IPA, but not enough hops to be a double.

Christian (12183) - Odense, DENMARK - SEP 23, 2007
Copper beer with a frothy off-white head that leaves some lacing. Big American hop aroma, with citrus, pine, pineapple, peach and roses. The little malt sweetness is quickly taken over by intense hop flavour, and bitterness, but the sweetness is definitely there. A think mouthfeel that is a bit overdone for my liking.

UPDATED: AUG 16, 2009 Very tasty IPA. Pours out dark amber. Very hoppy with a smooth finish. Tasty beer.

22oz Bomber
Deep golden color with a thin head. This had a strong hops aroma from the start. Loved the flavor and with a strong hops presnece. The beer was deep in flavor and the malts used also came through which can be hard for strong IPA’s Has some dry after affects but this was good and very tasty. Great Beer.
