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

DrBayern (1139) - Morehead City, North Carolina, USA - OCT 24, 2006
22 oz. bottle on 10/20/06. Gold pour with a large off white head. Fresh grainy aroma with nice citrus notes. Medium body with just the right carbonation, and a slightly resinous mouthfeel. Good sweet caramel backbone that is beautifully balnced with spice and citrus hop flavors that brings it to a pleasing dry finish.

NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - OCT 22, 2006
Aroma is floral, pine and citrus hops with a deep caramel malt sweetness beneath. Body is a murky orange/caramel color and holds a creamy and lassting white head. Bitter piney hop fore with some milder grapefruit notes and a big dollop od syrupy caramel sweetness that runs through all flavor ranges. Decent as this style goes, but the hops become distracting to my palate after a short time.

Gachupines (1038) - USA - OCT 13, 2006
Dark amber with a nice white head which fades a bit while drinking. Aroma is of pine. Flavor is pine and citrus hops with a decent malt backbone. Definitely a beer for hopheads, but remains drinkable. Might not be the most complex or interesting IIPA, but it is quite enjoyable for the hopheads out there.

LoveCaissa (873) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 13, 2006
Bottle 65 cl. Clear dark amber colour with a decent off-white head. Fruity (oranges/grapes) and malty aroma. Sweet flavour and thick palate. Mandatory dry and very bitter finish. Not the most sophisticated I2PA...

jonas (6033) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - OCT 13, 2006
Bottle. Citric, piney and orangepeel hop aroma. Amber, golden, creamy head. Quite dry pine, grassy hops dominate. Puckering dry finish. Grassy and orangepeel aftertaste. Quite extreme.

eboats (1082) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - OCT 8, 2006
Pours orange with a dirty white head. Aroma is big bready malts, carmel, and toasted notes. Flavor is sweet bready malts. Dry bitter finish. The body is pretty thick initially, but seems to get more watery with each sip.

madcow75 (426) - Sun Prairie, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 8, 2006
Bottle. Pours deep copper color, with a medium white head. Hops in the aroma, piney and citrusy. Taste is somewhat subdued for an IIPA, citrus and pine hops with some cookie malt. Decent bitterness right from the start. It’s ok.

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 8, 2006
This beer starts with a deep, brassy hue capped by a moderate and white frothy head. Hops are at the forefront in the aroma with big elements of spruce, grapefruit and orange. The malts are subdued, merely a touch of cookies and light caramel. Beginning with a light caramel sweetness, a bold hoppy prelude and strong fruity acidity, there is a slow malt fade as the finish reveals a sharp and striking hop bite. The finish is off-dry, the texture managing a certain slickness despite the bustliing carbonation. I could easily do without the caramel presence and a drier finish, but this is still a very effective hop vehicle and a good (non-barleywine!) DIPA.
