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

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.

mtangaa (10) - Hvidovre, DENMARK - JAN 29, 2008
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.

Guinness4Duff (515) - Tallahassee (and Poconos, PA), Florida, USA - JAN 26, 2008
Amber color with a quality white head. Nice floral aroma, sweet flavor that complements the bitterness. Nicely balanced and pretty good overall.

ubamartian (155) - Watertown, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 25, 2008
Bottle. Pours a good golden amber, with an ok white head. Aroma, hop heavy and tending towards the floral side, with a bit of citrus to balance. Flavor is of good hops, heavy again on the floral with citrus to mellow it a bit. Medium body, light on the tongue, but full in the mouth. Good hop bitter finish. Great IPA.

Gypsy19 (726) - California, USA - JAN 21, 2008
Nothing special; A very strong India pale ale, both in flavor and in buzz-factor. Basically tastes like grapefruit juice and vodka. Release should be limited, contrary to "Unlimited Release" decree on bottle.

tunneler (131) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JAN 20, 2008
barely qualifying as a double, and therefore a very drinkable brew. strong hops nose not much body, long bitter tail.

leeburg (230) - Juneau, Alaska, USA - JAN 20, 2008
UPDATED: FEB 25, 2009 Pleasant surprise all-around here. Beautiful golden red color with a fast head. Sweet floral aroma of tart cherries, apple, orange. Sweet crisp greeting with some expected citrus, barely noticeable alcohol, and bitter but relatively clean aftertaste.

pantanap (3366) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 18, 2008
bottle....been in the fridge for a few months so itís probably not at its freshest....poured a semi-transparent orange brown with a frothy white to off white head....floral and citrus notes in the nose combines with some malts but not too much....flavor of crisp citrus hops with a bitterness that lingers a bit in the finish but itís not obtrusive in any way. not too much in the way of malts and overall it is quite dry.....way better than the Oddysey just tried and is a bargain DIIPA for the price.

tympanic (168) - New York, New York, USA - JAN 17, 2008
Lagunitas Maximus IPA Pours an orange-amber color, fizzy white head. Aromas of apple, pear, hops. First sip reveals more pear, sour blueberry, lingering and savory hops.
