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

Nice head, strong hop aroma. 22 oz. $3.39 at Fred Meyer. What a deal. Even though hop flavor is strong too much maltiness seeps through for my idea of an imperial. Very good though, strong bitter aftertaste that lingers.

beervana (781) - Libertyville, Illinois, USA - MAR 20, 2006
(03.17.06) One pint, 6 oz brown bottle purchased from Liquorama.com. 7.5% ABV. IBU 72.41, OG 1.080. Pours clear orange with tiny white head. Soft carbonation. Sweet malt and hop in the nose. Full bodied IPA that starts with moderate malt sweetness and intense citrus (grapefruit)/pine resin flavors. Hop flavors and bitterness increases in the middle. Finishes with lingering hop flavor and bitterness with soap-like flavor fade. An unbalanced beer, this aggressive hoppy beer will leave the inside of your mouth feeling raw. Diehard hopheads will love this beer. Not for the timid.

Can you have too much of a good thing? I think so, after having tasted this beer. Maybe its because I found it unbalanced or poorly integrated or whatever adjective you want to choose, but this had all the rich colour and powerful green hop aroma I expected, however the palate was overpowered by bitter hop flavour, leaving it a bit harsh. Heavy mouthfeel, but not smooth as you’d expect. It was still good, but it just didn’t strike me as it did some of the other raters.

thebeertourist (4814) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 18, 2006
Clear amber with a solid, rocky head. Intense citrus and flowery aromas. Sweet caramel flavours, blending harmoniously with citrus and flowers, eventually ending drier. Medium bodied. A California IPA that manages to be more well-balanced and harmonious than most.

Grapevin Mkt. $4.59 22oz. Yum yum gushing flavors and abundant cascades bring to the front of the nose all that is west-coast wonderful. Caramel and tangerines and medium bodied barley satisfy my five mile thirst. A bargain I’ll seek out again.

AndrewM (126) - Waco (Buckle of the Bible Belt), Texas, USA - MAR 10, 2006
Pours red-orange with a nice fluffy creamy head. Pleasant piney grapefruit aroma. Nice hoppy kick, but drinks pretty smoothly. Decent beer.

jimmack (1222) - Nutley, New Jersey, USA - MAR 9, 2006
22oz. bomber. Clear amber color with a small white head. Citrus hop aroma with some sweet toasted malts to balance things out. Flavor was more hop heavy than the aroma. Big citrus hops with a bit of pine also. Some sweet malt in the background.

sliffy (2040) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 4, 2006
Amber color. Sweet hop aroma, with some underlying citrus and pine notes. Flavor matches the aroma, a little on the sweet side than what I was expecting. Hoppy finish, but still somewhat on the sweet side. Solid beer, but nothing special.

murawski (158) - USA - MAR 3, 2006
Bottle 22 oz. An excellent IPA. Glowing amber/orange color, slight white head, with a slightly sweet hoppy nose. Not too overpowering, but plenty of that nice bitter hoppy flavor. Overall, an above average IPA, that I would recommend if you can find it.

Krausen (102) - USA - MAR 1, 2006
Quite dissapointing aroma, it was very light with some solvent and alcohol and a mild hop note. There is little in the way of hops in the flavor as well. On a good note, for such a strong beer this is extremely smooth and balanced beer. It is very drinkable but not the hop bomb I expect from a double IPA.
