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%!

~Golden amber colour. Nice white head. ~The aroma is great! Nice strong grassy hops. Makes my mouth water. I could sniff this all day. I wish they made a cologne. ~Bittersweet flavor with emphasis on the earthy hops. A bit of citrus. Not as hoppy as I had expected from the scent. ~Palate is a little thick and chewy. ~A well done brew, but I am still waiting for the king brew of IPAís to grace my lips. This is my favorite IPA to date.

MiP (15296) - SÝnderborg, DENMARK - FEB 9, 2008
Bottle, 7.5%. Nice, sweet and caramelly hop aroma. Clear copper colour, small white head. The flavour is quite sweet, caramelly. Grassy from the hops with a good, cleansing bitterness. The finish has a little teaish hoppiness along with a good alcohol note. Quite flavourful but still well-balanced.

Jayb0 (1163) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - FEB 8, 2008
A well done double IPA. Big and beautiful fruit and resiny hops. Refreshing, although thick. Drinkable with nice balance making this more tahn one dimensional. Does not leave an overly bitter hop bite, just a nice warm, lingering fruitiness.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - FEB 2, 2008
Sampled at Sexual Chocolate Day. Iíd had this beer previously but hadnít enjoyed it this much. A very big floral nose gives a strong first impression. The mouthfeel is very thick and satisfying, abetted by the creamy head. Nice zingy hops dominate, with some almost peppery sharpness in there. Good stuff.

RblWthACoz (964) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - FEB 2, 2008
Sampled on-tap. Pours a basically clear orange/brown/amber. Nose is strong piney hops. Flavor is very hopped but letís say itís one step below a hop bomb. Long lasting aftertaste. Strong pine character. Feel is a bit syrupy on the liquid and good on the bubble. Drinkable, yes. But this one is kind of thick and might turn people off a bit with itís unique characteristics.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JAN 31, 2008
In the bomber bottle from Total Beverage. Pours amber with a large off white head of considerable staying power. Nice grapefruit citrus hop aroma. Flavor is sweet enough to balance out the hop load, so this actually ends up a surprisingly smooth beer to drink instead of the hop bomb that I was expecting.

kitschy (326) - Nebraska, USA - JAN 31, 2008
in bottle, thanks to sledge jr. A delightfully hoppy beer with a quick flash of floral, followed by grassy citrusness. palate is excellent, due to fine malt content. Truly enjoyable.

garretjax (103) - Colorado, USA - JAN 31, 2008
An easy red amber color with medium white head. Sharp hops and floral cirtus scents. Earthy bitterness and light body without much structure. Good carbonation and lower alcohol round out the finish.

My current favorite. Perfect harmony between hops and malt. Beautiful nose - citrus and flowers. Quite bitter, but not overdone.

doubleo (1432) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 27, 2008
Pours a deep honey orange color with a semi thick frothy white head that laces the glass. Smells of hoppy citrus but also a bit flowery as well. The hoppy taste is not overly bitter it is more subdued, somewhat sweet. A bit more grassy on the taste than on the nose. Has the mouthfeel of a much higher ABV IPA like Dreadnaught or Stone 10th. Kind of thick, carbonation is a bit on the low side, more heavy sweet than bitter. This is a great session DiPA at 7.5% ABV not too high, not too low.
