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

bottle. frothy, tawny head that laced nicely. really good color and appearance, more orange than anything else. Very hoppy, with molassess/horseblancket taste that gradually transformed to a slightly too medicinal sourness. Over all a great and complex beer.

Resin and grapefruit aroma (and malt). Gold tending towards reddish amber (top to bottom under halogen), maybe a ruby hint towards the bottom. Medium feel, malt to start, moving to hops, to grapefruit, to hops. Grapefruit noticeable at the finish. Swish and itís chewable. Swish and an apricot component appears. And itís 78 ibu. Nicely astringent when all is done. Pine in the burp. Really, really, great.

A great double IPA from Lagunitas! I really enjoyed the immense hoppiness from this beer, the hoppiness contributed to my happiness, you could say. Found it well-balanced, aromatic, yet did not remove the enamel from my teeth, I am pleased to report. All things considered, an enjoyable beer that should not to be followed by something tamer, such as a regular IPA...

ChillCoat (1029) - Concord, California, USA - MAY 25, 2006
Bottled. Pours a rich, dark copper color with an ivory head. Good hoppy aroma with notes on grapefruit, grass and oranges. Nice malt balance to blend with a good hoppiness. More grassy notes as well as tons of grapefruit and lemon flavors. Dry, bitter finish. This beer is a bit tame by most west-coast IIPA standards but itís still a fantastic beer.

Sessionable Imperial. Strong grapefruit and pine nose. big malt heavy bottom that is almost chewable itís so dense. but it has to be, to hold itís own against the huge PNW hop bite. Quite easy to drink over and over again.

reebtogi (4239) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 20, 2006
A strong IPA dark orange in colour. This is the finest of the Lagunitas beers in my opinion. Heavy malt character and slight fruitiness, with a strong bitter hoppiness.

heemer77 (5104) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - MAY 18, 2006
A crisp IPA that stands out from the crowd. The body was dark orange. The aroma was caramel and grapefruit with not much else. Nice strong aroma. The taste was bitter with grapefruit and peanut shells. There is also some caramel. Finishes clean. Nicely done.

OldMrCrow (1867) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 18, 2006
From a 22oz bottle.

Aroma of yes, big hops, but also off-smells of boiled cabbage with a whiff of burning transformer. The flavor is malt-heavy, offering plenty of bitter hop oils but bringing with it the vegetal flavors of kitchen peelings compost and rather unpleasant (in a beer) iron-pot balti flavors. In mouthfeel, the beer seems to split two styles; itís two thick to be a thirst-quenching IPA and too thin to be a mouthwarming sipping IIPA.

6 ounces into the bottle, Iím left underwhelmed and wondering what to do with the remaining 16 ounces.

Golden witha tal head, deflates into an aroma of pine and a light citrus, Subtle spearmint. Nice and sweet,of honey and fruits, and frankly not that bitter in the mouth. After some warming and waiting (in the mouth and the glass) the hops start to come through. Seems to be an american hop, centenital or warrior. Very drinkable but very sweet for the style, and thin on the back of the tounge. Worth a revisit to further explore this beer.
