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

Amber in color big malty hop aroma followed by citrus aromas. Super sweet for a DIPA, not at all bitter. Malty sweetness, lightly carbonated. Highly drinkable, unusually so for a DIPA. Yummy and enjoyable in quantity.

kmeves (1098) - Mount Pleasant, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 28, 2007
Orange/amber in color, fairly good sized foamy white head that lingers. Aroma is citris, caramel an date/raisin fruitiness. Nice big hop punch folwed by somewhat of a chewy caramel flavor. Medium body which is not typical of most DIPAs. Also a bit of warmth detected in the finish. Overall a very good beer.

UPDATED: JUL 22, 2008 Poured from a bottle. Orange amber in color, average off white head. Nose is awesome. Lots of citrus, sweet malt and piney hops. A little soapy and sticky, but still an awesome DIPA. I

ilikestuff (224) - Irving, Texas, USA - MAY 27, 2007
FAR sweeter than any IPA or double IPA i have ever tried, with a fair amount of fruitiness.. A great beer, but definately not what I was looking for in the style. An extremely sweet burnt raisin and caramel flavor with a peppery hop bite, but little bitterness, followed with a very pronounced, almost porter-like roastedness.

riversideAK (5738) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - MAY 26, 2007
Mostly a sweet malt aroma, a hint of hops peaks through the orange colored beer. Flavor is a sweet caramel malt blast, some malty fruitiness, followed by piney and peppery hops. This is a pretty heavy brew because of the pronounced maltiness. Not too resiny, although a peppery bite hangs around for a minute. Not my favorite IIPA, but a nice beer nonetheless.

An intense IPA. Amber with beige head. Not very impressive visually but the nose was strong hops, grapefruit, alcohol. Great mouthfeel. Rich and thick. Flavor had kick to it. Hops bitterness in a good way. Fruity. Grapefruit juicy. Kick ass IPA.

swoopjones (6755) - Buffalo, New York, USA - MAY 22, 2007
on tap @ Coles Buffalo NY. Not bad heavy on the citrus. Grapefruit bomb. decent hop bitterness. @ 7.5 wont kill you like some DIPA’s

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAY 21, 2007
Bottled. Amber-orangey colour with a rich white foam. grapefruity hop aroma with notes of pine-cones. Citrousy fresh flavour with a long bitter grapefruity finish. Simple but tasty.

If you like this style you will easily enjoy this drop. Colour wasn’t that flash to me but that is ok, hops are all you notice - a little more malt for the backbone would be nice, alcohol was good, so this was easily drinkable but not outstanding.

Very nice hop aroma. Light bodied, but slightly oily. Slightly sweet with strong, but mild alcohol note that slowly reveals dark fruits. Finishes with a chorus of flavors. Lots of interesting, unexpected effects. A masterful IIPA.
